Providing an alternative

In most cases, abortion in Indonesia is illegal yet the abortion rate is high.  According to BKKBN (Indonesia’s National Demography and Family Organisation), abortion is common among college students and some high school students. These women suffer greatly following unsafe abortions.

RUTH House offers women an alternative to the decision to abort and supports them during and after their pregnancies. When women in Indonesia become pregnant outside of marriage, they are often rejected from their families and villages. Since RUTH House was founded in 2011, founder Devi and her husband Charles have taken in hundreds of women and helped them through pregnancy and as they navigating life with their babies. The women are then able to make informed choices about their lives. Some go back to their families after reconciling with them and bring up their children in their original communities. Others become independent single mums or decide to give their baby up for adoption.
