Philip’ 5yrs old, ‘John’ 4yrs old and Betty’ 3yrs old (The children’s real names are not use for privacy sake), were born to a mentally unstable mother. They did not know who their fathers are – their mother was possibly taken advantage by some men who knew she wouldn’t be able to identify them for what they have done to her, due to her mental state.
When their mother’s mental problems got worse and she could not hold on to her job, their rented home also disappeared as the landlady threw them out in the streets.
Surviving by eating leftovers at coffeeshops, hawkers stalls, what they found in garbage bins and finally lived under a flyover.
That was when social welfare department found and rescued them. They were then placed in Yayasan Sunbeams Home. Though the tender and loving care of the staff, they grew up strong and healthy. ‘Philip’ grew up to become a successful accountant with a leading bank after graduating with honors from a college in the UK. The younger brother ‘John’ was gainfully employed and ‘Betty’ is now happily married.
