Casa Compasiva, or Compassion House, is a Christian birth and midwifery training centre. Lila Quesada founded the centre in 2011 when she saw the need for quality maternity care in Oaxaca, Mexico, where maternity care is usually inaccessible to all but the most wealthy. The team at Casa Compasiva offers prenatal classes, delivery assistance, and postpartum care as well as Bible studies and spiritual education opportunities.
Alongside her work at Casa Compasiva, Lila is also involved in creating audio recordings of the New Testament in the 120 languages that are spoken in Oaxaca. These recordings incorporate multiple voice actors, music, and sound effects to help the text come alive. They are distributed free of charge throughout the region so that all might hear the gospel in their own language.
Casa Compasiva operates under the leadership of Missionary Ventures Canada.
