50nl homegame: Donk bet from sb in a 3 way pot on a draw heavy board

So here is a hand I played recently
stakes .25/.50

I am dealt QxJs in hj and open to 1.50, co calls, sb calls.
Pot $5
stack sizes: co: $30, sb: $100, hero in hj: $90
Flop comes Qs9s8x
sb leads for $2, I decide to raise to $7 and then the player in the co tanks and ships all in for $30, the sb folds, I decide to call

how should I respond to this donk bet?

Calling seems bad to me since I allow many high equity draws that the sb has to see the turn for free. Additionally, I know that if I call here and cap my range that the sb will punish me with a large turn and river bet.

Folding seems bad because I have a good hand that beats many draws.

Raising seems bad because I have a player behind me that can ship with many high equity draws and nut type hands which I'm at best chopping with. Also by reraising I allow the sb to go all in with his made hands and high equity draws which I'm not doing too well against.
