I AM NOT FOR SALE
I was looking for work in a big city, when a woman promised me a good job if I flew to a different island with her. She was a really nice woman and I trusted her so I agreed. I left my family to start this new job with the hopes I could provide for my children. But that hope quickly faded when I realized it was all a lie. I had been trafficked. I was forced to do things I didn't want to do.
I met an Indonesia Aid team. They helped me get into a safe place. Then, they helped me find a safe job which eventually lead to me starting my own business. I was then reunited with my family. I am grateful for all they did to help me and my family.
