The People of Tola


Maria Elana Busto

She is a mother who lives in Tola, Nicaragua. She is excited about a medical center coming to Tola because she will finally have a place where she can take her children when they are sick. This past year, she has had several family and friends fall ill with Chikungunya. It's a common occurrence, yet the community lacks an accessible, affordable medical center that can address this and other common diseases like hypertension, diabetes and arthritis.
