- "I have been working as a haus meri since I was 14 and I never missed a day. I don't want let people down. I had my days, when I was sick, or had problems, but I would still go to work, because families I work for need me. Previously, I was a babysitter to two lovely twin girls. They were with me since they were 3 month until 2 years. They lived in a compound. After they left I have never been to that place, until last week. I saw it and I cried. I saw the playground, swimming pool, little roads and corners - we used to go there every day. They would run around and I would lose my breath trying to catch them. I can still hear them calling my name... I hope their mother takes a good care of them" #HumansUNDP Quiva, nanny to one of our many children 26 May AT 09:06 PM
