Orphaned Siblings Resort To Living In An Empty Rental Flat

During the circuit breaker last year, Madam Sarimah found a boy sleeping at a staircase landing. After learning that he was an orphan, she offered the boy a helping hand.

According to the Facebook post, the young boy was brought under the care of a family for a few months. But when he was offered a place to stay at a New Hope rental flat, he moved in with his brother and other tenants. However, the duo didn’t stay for long and then move to another (offered) rental flat in the North on Monday (26).

The elder boy contacted Madam Sarimah again to ask for help getting a used washing machine.

She was in for a surprise when she went to visit their flat and found it was empty. Aside from the siblings’ belongings, their home was completely bare with only built-in furniture. The flat didn’t have proper necessities or appliances either.

Seeing how the brothers were living in the empty flat, Madam Sarimah asked friends and neighbours for help. Thankfully, many of them were willing to provide the siblings with whatever they needed.

There were kind strangers that bought fans for their home. Another one of her friends gave them mattresses, pillows, and blankets. Other strangers also offered the siblings a fridge.

More Help And Support For The Two Orphaned Brothers

Thanks to the post that has now gone viral, Project Pencil Singapore has also decided to hold a fundraiser for them.

The fundraiser will help the orphaned siblings with products they can use for cleaning and painting their bare rental flat. This is to ensure it is in good condition before Hari Raya celebrations. Eventually, the funds will also cover furniture for the siblings’ home.
