How Did They Get Here? By Susan Leonmarth Van Litaay

How Did They Get Here? Photo Series By Susan Leonmarth Van Litaay

Cukup mengejutkan saat saya mengunjungi panti asuhan Boncel ini.
Bahkan awalnya saya berpikir bahwa tempat ini adalah salah satu sekolah elite Katolik di pusat kota Jakarta.

Ada beberapa tempat tidur besi berjajar. Para bayi memiliki penyejuk udara, perawatan standar dalam taraf baik dan tidak sembarang orang dapat masuk. Di panti tersebut ada sebuah jendela besar yang mana dapat dilihat dari luar. Saya terpana oleh jendela-jendela besar, untuk siapakah?

Jendela tampaknya siap untuk pengunjung sehingga mereka dapat melihat bagaimana lembaga memperlakukan bayi. Dalam kamar ada sekitar 22 bayi dari berbagai usia. Rata-rata saya melihat kebanyakan bayi usia 1 tahun ke bawah yang kamarnya disetel radio, sehingga ada beberapa balita yang menari kotak irama.

Ada pula yang tiba-tiba menangis dan langsung ditangani perawat dengan penuh kelembutan.

Nah bagaimana mereka bisa ada di tempat ini? Seumur hidup mungkin tak akan pernah terpahami.

Somewhat surprising that the orphanage named Boncel, which last year I visit this well-preserved
Even I would have thought that this place is one of an elite Catholic school in the city center of Jakarta.

There are several bed of iron lined. Baby in the room has air-conditioning, and not just anyone may enter. As the nursery at the hospital, there is a large window where one can see from the outside. Had I was stunned by the large windows, for whom the it is?

The window appears to be prepared for visitors so they can see how institutions treat the baby. In the room there were about 22 babies of various ages. On average I see everything under 1 year of age .. In the room mounted radio, so there is some holding toddlers who dance to the rhythm box.

There was a sudden cry and nurse with patient shoote the baby in a compassionate tone. So Pure!

How did they get here? These children have their own story.
The story didn’t understand a lifetime.

Because the point where the baby was finally forced to give to the Boncel’s place is a result and a point of conclusion. A story in which hundreds of problems solved by selfishness.
