Die Tageszeitung, Reportage on Single Mother Romy

Single mother Romy lives with her fives daughters, a dog, a hamster and a few goldfish in tower-block housing, Berlin.

She has no time to lose in a day: waking up, dressing, having breakfast, going to the kindergarden and school, cleaning and washing, then picking up the children.
She prudently spends the little money she receives through her status of social welfare beneficiary to fill up the fridge and relies on extra food donations from social associations.

When these pictures were taken, Romy was looking for a job.
