About the project
Oaxaca is located in Southwestern Mexico. The state is best known for it’s indigenous peoples and cultures. MVC has been working in Oaxaca for many years. Ellie and Lila Quezada and their six children have served faithfully for 15 years ministering.
Ellie manages a recording studio, in which he and five other audio technicians record the new testament and old testament as well as dubbing the Jesus film in 120 local languages in the area. Local pastors distribute these recordings on solar powered radios.
Lila, along with other locals, began a birthing center ministry to directly impact the lives of women and families.
Why have a birthing centre
Many thousands of people in Oaxaca remain isolated from medical care, and even those who have access to government staffed clinics often receive inadequate care. Women giving birth within the government medical system are often subjected to trauma through complete isolation from friends and loved ones, racial prejudice, over-crowded conditions, and highly interventionist obstetric policies.
Casa Compasiva works to provide a safe, natural birth environment that is respectful of the Oaxaca people while utilizing essential midwifery and medical knowledge to provida quality care and save lives.
