Government & Policy
In Malaysia, mothers have little choice but to leave their newborns in public toilets or motorcycle baskets. Many factors contribute to this problem, chief of which is a stigmatization of abortion and a limit on its access. Still, that only skims the surface of this dire problem.
Malaysia’s Program Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) is a low cost housing project that, like Singapore’s HDB flats, promises every citizen a roof over their heads. The reality, according to long-time residents, is anything but.
If places makes memories, and memories make the home, what happens when you're relocated away from familiarity? For residents of the blocks here at Marsiling, recently acquired by HDB under the SERS scheme, the struggle to keep the feeling of home remains. We hand them film cameras and ask them to show us, literally, through their lens, places in the estate that hold deep and meaningful memories for them.
