Cristobalina plays with one of her 22 nephew and niece at home in a small remote village called Patzutzun in the southwestern highlands located about three hours from Guatemala City. Like many other indigenous families in Guatemala, Cristobalina comes from a large family with ten children. To help family’s financial condition, Cristobalina started to live and work outside of her village at the age of 11. Since then, she had not lived with her family until after the accident.
