ΣΟΚΑΡΙΣΤΙΚΟ: Ψυχικά ασθενείς αντιμετωπίζονται σαν ζώα από τις οικογένειές τους! (ΔΕΙΤΕ ΣΥΓΚΛΟΝΙΣΤΙΚΕΣ ΦΩΤΟ)

Συγκλονιστικές φωτογραφίες κάνουν το γύρο του κόσμου από την κατάσταση που επικρατεί στην Ινδονησία σχετικά με τους ψυχικά ασθενείς και την αντιμετώπιση που έχουν ακόμη και από τις οικογένειές τους!

Συγκεκριμένα οι ψυχικά ασθενείς αντιμετωπίζονται κριολεκτικά σαν ζώα και κλειδώνονται σε σιδερένια κλουβιά, στην περίπτωση που η οικογένειά τους δεν μπορεί να ανταποκριθεί στα έξοδα νοσηλείας τους σε κάποι ίδρυμα. Ο αριθμός των ψυχικά ασθενών που είναι κλεισμένοι σε κλουβιά σε όλη την χώρα εκτιμάται γύρω στις 26.000!

Kadek sits in her own bodily filth smeared across the floor. There are no windows therefore no ventilation. Her door is metal sheet iron with a little window and outside, it is secured with a large padlock

Kadek is one of an estimated 300 severely mentally disabled people living in Bali who are kept in 'pasung', meaning they are locked in cages or chains by their families who cannot afford to treat their illness

Kadek was sitting on the ground smeared with her own faeces. Photographer Ingetje Tadros asked her father if it was possible to wash her and he gave her a bucket

Ketut's mother is unlocking the room where she has held her son since 2006. 'He was very aggressive and stole a cow, then he started hitting me and even tried to kill his father, we had no choice but to chain him and lock him up,' she said

Normally the window is covered by a piece of cloth. The door is locked and Ketut is left alone, all day, all night. His mother feeds him once a day

Dr. Suryani found Ketut in 2011 where he had been locked up and chained in a dark smelly room since 2006. She started treating him and the family was able to release him from the chain, but fear of what he may do leaves the family with no choice but to keep him locked in a room

For over eight years Ketut has been locked up in this dark and filthy room. Unwashed and unwanted

This little metal cage away from the main house has been Sari's prison for over sixteen years, when she became mentally ill she got placed in this tin shed with only a woven bamboo floor to sit on. Here she is sitting in a position hardly changed over all these years. Now she is not able to walk anymore

Ari is now capable of washing himself albeit in dirty conditions. Ari's stepmother is his carer as well as that of his sister and his mother who are also mentally ill

Kadek lays now in this bed twenty four hours, seven days a week and has been doing so for the past ten years. Kadek does not have the ability to walk at all due to the restraining process used which has affected his body
