For some of our Interserve workers in Asia, it looks like walking alongside Leia*, mother of five, through the pressures of her life. Working from 4am, Leia sorts through rubbish for recycling, earning little more than $2 a day.
Leia’s job became even harder when COVID-19 meant tourists stopped visiting, restaurants closed, and therefore there was much less rubbish to sort. Her income reduced significantly and she felt the burden of providing for her children, one of whom has a disability.
Interserve workers came alongside Leia and her family, demonstrating love in action through counselling, prayer, mental health support and practical care.
