Paul Baker and is wife, Fatima have worked pro-bono with Chilean, Salvadoran and Nicaraguan people for about forty years surviving by skin of teeth and seat of pants.

He has found it profoundly inspiring sharing life with people who drop by, not knowing if there’ll be food for tomorrow, yet always greeting you smiling, with their children washed, pressed and ready for school.

His wife, Fatima, is herself a barrio girl, fighting Somoza at age 13 to bring Nicaragua to justice. She worked on in barrio health and education ever since, and is now deeply committed to a clinic for severely burned children.

It’s wonderful to work alongside her and her companeras, especially since thanks to their FSLN government after more than a decade of neo-liberal regimes rolling back land reform, privatizing health care, education, transport, etc. Nicaragua is once more the “threat of a good example. (OXFAM).”

Paul will lead us in Ode to Earth to the melody Ode to Joy
