A Smile Beyond Poverty
“Life becomes easy when somebody care to lift a hand………”
Marites Baldesco is a widow and a mother of nine children. She and her family lives in brgy. Cutcut, Guiguinto, Bulacan in the Philippines. Life is not easy for her because she needs to work to feed her children. Everyday she works as a housemaid and earn 2,000 pesos (<$50 USD) a month not enough to sustain her family.
With this situation she even sacrifices her meal just to let her children eat. Their house is a former pigpen that was only fixed with a scrap roof and wood.
