'Foreign Baby Box"

While I lived in South Korea, I studied multimedia journalism at the Konrad Adenauer Asian Centre for Journalism. I worked on adoption and abandonment stories and came across the Korean baby box and a foreign baby box.

One night whilst interviewing a pastor for my short film, a young mother from Cambodia arrived at the church looking for support. She wanted to give up her baby. Her partner from Sri Lanka left her. 

The two of them, Sophia and Rose, were deserted. Sophia, a low-income factory worker, was left to work and care for her child independently.
