“I have nine kids and they all live in Istanbul. My husband and I live in a village alone. My husband has cancer and is getting treatment, he has to go to the hospital every month. All of the responsibilities fall on my shoulders, I have been working since I was a kid and I have never felt tired. My kids have left one by one to Istanbul to work because there aren’t a lot of work in the village, there is only farming. They are all far away and we talk by phone, they come back from time to time and then leave again. I would have preferred that all of my kids were living with me, but there is no chance. Life for an old woman can be very hard.”
