Idalina Bordignon, a lawyer, nun, and director of the Scalabriniana Association for the Service of Human Mobility, ASCALA, a local human rights organization that focuses on immigrant rights, helps clean the wound of sugar cane worker Alister Yan on Sunday Aug. 16, 2015 outside of Batey Don Juan, Dominican Republic. A piece of sugar cane pierced Yan's foot almost a year ago. The wound became massively infected but because Yan has yet to receive his pension he could not afford healthcare.
