Brothers James* and John* were growing up in a happy family until their father met an accident. He suffered from brain injury as a result, which caused him to be easily irritated and abusive. James and John's mother became alcoholic and eventually left them. Their father then became more aggressive, constantly choking or whipping them with a belt. The children's grandmother eventually sought help from the school. The children were referred to the authorities and were sent to Singapore Children's Society Sunbeam Place, one of our 11 service centres islandwide.
Their father's health continued to deteriorate and they eventually lost their house. Now, he resides in a nursing home. Their grandmother shuttles between the homes of her son and grandsons, doing her best to preserve whatever is left of the family intact.
