Everything For My Children

The salary I received was sometimes only enough to eat so I was forced to work overtime and skip my lunch meal.

“My life in Malaysia is just like any other Indonesian worker. My son who is now living with my eldest daughter makes me less worried about their wellbeing.

My children are the only treasure I have, surely I want the best for them. My youngest child is still in school and needs some amount of money to spend. The salary I received was sometimes only enough to eat so I was forced to work overtime and skip my lunch meal.

My employer didn’t provide accommodation and transportation so I have to take a bus and rent a house near to the city. I do not care about the hardships that I faced today because this is a sacrifice for the future of my kids.”
