About Campaign

Patrick* is 13 years old this year and has been raised single-handedly by his mother, as his father left the family when he was 5 months old.

With no other relatives in Singapore to provide support, his mother placed Patrick in the care of Boys' Town while she sought medical treatment.

Patrick also has various medical conditions since the age of 9 and is required to attend regular medical appointments.

Due to his family background and physique, Patrick was often teased at and bullied since young, which led to him having difficulty trusting others and maintain positive peer relationships.

*Name has been changed to protect the youth's identity.

About the Charity

Boys' Town is a charity started by the Brothers of St. Gabriel and provides residential care, street outreach, fostering, and community and school-based programmes for families, children, and youth-in-need. We help babies and youth who come from disadvantaged families and may have faced hardship due to various reasons such as financial struggles, family issues, emotional trauma, and abuse. Through our services and programmes, we equip them with the skills they need to become responsible and contributing members of society.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
