A family’s helper can easily be taken for granted, as people forget that they provide the services that keep a family together and make their lives easier.
This family maid was seen on a separate table, as she watches her employer’s family eat away at a restaurant and is now viral all over the internet.
It can be seen that the family were feasting on the other table, while the maid was just sitting there and looking without even a drink for herself.
The family was from Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta and the person who took the photo was a local man by the name of Michael Fanny.
The heart-breaking photo brought an outpouring of sympathy from all over the internet, as social media users reacted to the photo, expressing anger. Fanny’s post reached over 60,000 shares.
'Your pembantu (servant) is part of your life. A reflection of your humanity. Imagine you are in their position, no phone to hold, not invited to eat, eyes just looking around,'
'We must respect and love our maids, our drivers, our gardeners ... Life is not about profits and loss, it is not about ourselves.
'By sharing a little of what we have then we are sharing the love of God. #respectotherpeople #respectourmaid #respectourdriver #loveotherpeople #Godislove.'
The workforce of Indonesia is made up hugely by the domestic workers, both local and foreign. It is not unknown to the international community that many start from a young age and grow old serving the families of the rich and powerful.
