Some Children Waiting for Foster Families


Some Children Waiting for Foster Families
Get Involved - Make a Difference 

Help our children


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. 

Here are some of our profiles of children who are waiting for foster home:

(Please note that the following profiles are meant to provide you with a better idea of the background and needs of the children who come into foster carem and not for the purpose of matching the children with foster families.)



1 month old

Though Naely was born prematurely at a gestational age of 34 weeks, Naely has no know medical conditions and can be cared for like any other new-borns. A victim of neglect as such a tender age, a loving family would make a great difference in these important first months.  


Kaleb and Kyler

3 years old and 5 years old

Kyler is a shy and quiet boy who enjoys watching videos. On the other hand, being the more outgoing sibling, Kaleb gets along well with people and expresses his delight through singing. Both brothers are adaptable and able to adjust well to new routines quickly. Being victims of neglect, Kyler and Kaleb would benefit from a loving environment.



6 years old

Shirini was exposed to harsh physical punishment and violence between his parents at a tender age. He has been diagnosed with global developmental delay and also has speech delay. Despite his circumstances, Shirini is a pleasant and optimistic boy. Shirini needs a patient and loving family who is able to help him thrive and reach his potential.


8 years old

 Despite having been exposed to harsh physical punishment by his mother, Damien is a friendly and active boy who shares a warm relationship with others. He is chatty and able to voice his opinions well. He gets along well with his peers. However, due to his past experiences, Damien tend to hide his feelings and emotions. Damien will definitely benefit from a caring and nurturing environment, where he can open up to people whom he trusts.  




12years old

Aishah is a well-behaved girl who gets along well with her friends. In the past, Aishah would throw small objects around when she is upset, as she had witnessed her family doing the same in the past. However, art therapy sessions have helped her to learn how to manage her emotions. A nurturing environment with positive role models would help her mature into a confident and capable teenager.
