Svetlana, a 46-year-old Christian woman, a survivor, always on the move, she had fallen hard into drugs and prostitution along her path.

I've met Svetlana for the first time in November 2015 at the "Death Courtyard" in a forgotten dark alley in Tel Aviv.

I've gotten to know a strong woman who got dealt the worst cards.  Life in that courtyard was unbearable: homeless people, prostitution, and drugs. Groups of people, walking daily on that tight rope between life and death.

Today, Svetlana is completely clean from drugs, she practices her religious rituals, works for a living and conducts normal life away from that harsh reality she once was a part of, now she helps others to choose life. in 2019 she got married and she lives with happiness and love.
