Thank You, Petrina.

为了家计,雅妮20岁出头就离开印尼万隆(Bandung)的老家到马来西亚当家庭女佣。中介把她派往急需帮手的家庭,以临时或兼职女佣的形式协助解决燃眉之急,因此她来马没多久就服务过近30个家庭。她和现任雇主——儿童尊严基金会(Dignity for Children Foundation)共同创办人首席执行员徐香妃(Petrina)的缘分也是因为“紧急状况”而开始的。 她称徐香妃Kakak Pet,“那时候Kakak Pet刚生产,需要很快请到工人,中介把我送过来时,她刚好在弹钢琴,我不知道那是什么曲子,但听了觉得心里很平静。”今年43岁的雅妮忆述:“通常去到一个新的家庭,我都会先询问要如何称呼女主人,是Ma'am还是Madam,但她让我叫她Kakak(姐姐),还带我到厨房,跟我说美禄、饼干的位置,并让我坐在椅子上。”雅妮笑言,其他雇主只允许她坐在地板上。

Football Brings All Together

Dignity for Children Foundation held its 14th Faisal Cup recently. The Faisal Cup is a football tournament that brings together marginalised and refugee children to play football in a recognised competition. It also serves as a safe platform for the children to continue pursuing their dreams while ensuring that no child has to die doing so.
