Poor Little Yeap....
LATEST: Wednesday April 16 2008
Yeap Jia Hui, 10, who was abandoned by his mother for some 18 months, will live with his grand-aunt, Yeap Choon Lean, 59 and her husband.
His mother, after much persuasion, has finally relented to this.
The story here.
Little Yeap who was abandoned by his mother about 18 months ago, forcing him to live alone in their apartment in George Town, Penang, will now live with his grand-aunt. Click here for the story.
That's happy news for this 10 year-old who's been fending for himself all this while.
He's a good boy who did his homework and everything as though he had someone taking care of him.
How lonely and alone he must have felt when he was at home...poor thing.
I hope his grand-aunt Yap Choon Lean, 59, can cope, though.
But where is little Yeap's mummy, Kim Hong? Is she ok? I hope she's ok so that we can bring her to see her son!
My original posting:
What's to become of 10 year-old J.H Yeap (picture) whose mother left him more than 1 year ago -- all alone in their apartment in George Town, Penang.
Please read about him here.
The story does not say what has become of little Yeap, whether he is still living on his own, after the story was published in the papers.
And whether any effort is being taken to locate his mummy.
I'm sure that Yeap is in good hands and being taken care of by the Penang Welfare Services Department.
Or, is he?
I'd like to know.
