Aaron and Halimah have suffered more than many parents. For over 9 years, Halimah cared for her sick parent with diabetes, who eventually passed away, but the cost of treatment over a long period of time left a large debt. In order to pay the debt, Halimah became a migrant worker in 2008 in Saudi Arabia. Aaron, (her husband) also went to Saudi Arabia in 2011. In 2012, Aaron and Halimah returned to Indonesia to prepare Anwaf for elementary school.
