HONG KONG (2019) – Siti Nor Rohmah, a 28-year-old single mother from Kudus, Central Java, Indonesia, left her son and came to Hong Kong eight months ago.
As a domestic helper, Siti said shortly after her arrival she encountered some difficult times, but she has since overcome them.
“Being a domestic helper is easy to me,” she said. “But the important thing is enjoying my job.”
She said she wants to save more money for her son, Rafi, who is studying at primary school. Siti believes that education is very important.
“That’s why I will do everything for my son,” she added.
After going back to Indonesia, Siti wants to start her own little business from experiences she learned in Hong Kong. She hopes that it will be enough for her son and family.
