Week 47: Rahayu Rahmat

Rahayu, a mother of four, was sold to a brothel by her husband to pay off his debts and spent years on the streets of Johor Bahru, just across the border from Singapore. Now HIV positive as a result, she became a social worker and founded Sinar Sofia, an NGO which helps prostituted women off the streets and into employment. I was lucky enough to meet her and present her with this design, and will be helping Rahayu and Sinar Sofia in any way possible. You can learn more here.
