Leaving everything behind, a journey from Cochabamba

Sixteen years ago Sonia decided to leave Bolivia looking for a better future. It wasn't an easy decision as this implied leaving her 4-year-old son behind, and she had to wait three years to bring it with her. Since then, she has been working as a babysitter or elderly-care worker, but the crisis left her in a very vulnerable situation that leads her to turn to Saint John of God to survive. Saint John of God Hospital Order accompany and shelter those in an awkward moment and encourage their autonomy through customised attention programs.
