Ruth house

Yayasan Rumah Tumbuh Harapan (a house for growing hope or simply RUTH House) is a non profit Christian organisation that aims to help women with unwanted pregnancies. It gives them a safe shelter to stay in while they wait for the arrival of their little one. Devi took her first homeless pregnant girl in when she lived in a one bedroom university dormitory. She gave the girl her bed and slept on the floor. That was the first of many. In Indonesia many women are cast out of their job, school and family when they are found to be pregnant. This leaves 1,000’s of them homeless with nowhere to go and nobody to care for them. Many cases that come to Ruth House are a result of abuse. Many are raped and some have been trafficked into prostitution.
