Apis doesn't come back
to hospital


Picture story from Indonesia.
The biggest problem of the ill and their families is a chronic disease. People devoid of the help of the state have to cope with the problem on their own. The suspected mentally ill are isolated in sheds and cages. This is the way their families cope with shame and protect neighbours from possible aggression of the ill.
This is also a way of protecting their family member from lynching and persecution.
