Christina Balitor owns a broken sewing machine in Estancia, in the Philippines province of Iloilo, but doesn't have money to fix it. A survivor of childhood polio, she cannot walk on her own. She washes laundry to earn a meager living. Her wheelchair broke six years before and she has been unable to afford a new one. Her house was washed away by Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Yolanda, in November 2013. Balitor now lives with her sister.
