love awakens thy soul
Last night at the opening of One Child One Life Projekt photo exhibition, there was this performance of ukulele. What made this performances so special is the kid. While HIV has weakened his body, his recovery was aided when he found passion in music, through ukulele.
Accompanying him is Natasya Evalyne Sitorus. Tasya has been working with Lentera Anak Pelangi, the non profit organisation behind this event, since 2009 as Advocacy Manager. She is a passionate character who cares about humanity and personal development since high school.
But Tasya is not alone. In my short encounters with Lentera Anak Pelangi and its activities in mentoring those with HIV in Jakarta, I am blessed to have met some of her friends and colleagues: advisor Evadana Rachmat and program director Nita Anggriawan (whom I have known since high school), psychosocial specialist Stella Anjani, educator Rudi Mulia, case manager Nurmulyani, and its founder and advisor prof. Irwanto.
They all share a few common characters: they are passionate, they care, and they give love.
If you would also like to share your care and love to those unfortunate souls who are living with HIV, please contact Lentera Anak Pelangi.
The photo exhibition is held in Kunstkring Art Gallery, 1 Teuku Umar street, Jakarta, and is open for public until 31 march 2017.
