After her husband broke his leg, Lourdes became the sole provider for her family. Every day, she washes clothes and sells tortillas, hoping to make enough money to feed their hungry children. She often skips dinner just so the children can have something to eat the next morning.
“I pray to God my children go forward in better ways,” Lourdes said, fighting back tears. “It makes me feel sad. Mothers need to be strong so that the children have a better life and not struggle like we do.”
