Some Children Waiting for Foster Families

There are many children waiting to be part of a foster family. Some of these children are in their school-going years, and some have special educational, emotional or medical needs. Their greatest need is a nurturing and safe home environment that will provide the love and care that they need. By providing a loving home, you can help these children to thrive and reach their fullest potential, as well as create a memorable childhood. 

Below are some of these children who are currently on our waitlist. If you can provide a home for them, please step forward to join us as foster parents. Make a difference in their lives today.

Jonathan

Benjamin

7 years old, Chinese, Male

Benjamin is an enthusiastic young boy who is diagnosed with autism. He is always eager to learn and needs a nurturing and structured environment to help him realise his full potential. He responds well to routine and to visual instructions. As long as concepts are repeated, or taught directly on a one-to-one basis, Benjamin will be able to understand and do what is expected of him.            

Omar

Nasiruddin and Hairul (Sibling Group)

9 years old and 6 years old respectively, Indian, Males

Brothers Nasiruddin and Hairul are both very active and love to play outdoors. The siblings have been raised in a rough environment where their parents have been unable to give them the tender loving care they need. If they are provided a structured environment to thrive in, the boys will be obedient and will also listen to instructions.      

Timothy and Sarah (sibling group) 

Haziq

4 years old, Malay, Male

A friendly boy by nature, Haziq is more comfortable conversing in Malay. Although he has limited vocabulary, he tries to express his thoughts verbally. He might throw tantrums if he is not given what others have, but if he is given time to reflect, he will calm down and listen to instructions. 

Ryan

Alice

10 years old, Chinese, Female 

Alice has a congenital heart disease and requires medical reviews twice a year. Although her medical needs are not extreme, Alice has certain emotional and behavioural needs that require a healthy environment. She does not respond well to structure but with someone who is loving and patient to guide and support her, Alice will learn to manage her behaviour better. 

Irfan

Wai Jun and Wen Jun (Sibling Group) 

9 years old and 8 years old respectively, Chinese, Males

Despite the harsh physical punishments that the brothers have endured, they display a pleasant disposition. They interact positively with others. The younger of the two is someone who is able to voice his likes and dislikes. If presented with an opportunity to grow in a loving and encouraging home, Wai Jun and Wen Jun will be able to mature.

Raymond

Sarala

3 years old, Indian, Female

Neglected and physically abused, Sarala has the tendency to play roughly and is hyperactive. With close supervision, her behaviour is manageable. As she is still in her formative years, Sarala simply needs a patient and affectionate figure who can teach her right from wrong.

Khabir

 Ariff

2 months old, Malay, Male

At just 2 months old, Ariff has been subjected to physical abuse and has suffered multiple injuries, including a skull fracture. He currently requires long-term tube feeding with frequent neurology rehabilitation. No other special care for Ariff is needed. 

Ashraf

Ming Chia

8 years old, Chinese, Female

Ming Chia exhibits self-harming behaviour that is presumably trauma-related. She needs a therapeutic home setting and someone with a great degree of patience and understanding who can teach her to express herself better.

Ibrahim

Shaleh

8 months old, Malay, Male

Shaleh is a vulnerable child who has high medical needs. He has restricted muscular movement and has to undergo monthly speech and occupational therapy. With a dedicated caregiver to nurture him, Shaleh can improve his general functioning and grow up leading a better life.
