Witness how it takes a village to turn a life around. Discover how strong communities, friendships and families can put a person in crisis back on his feet in the third installment of “IT TAKES A VILLAGE”. In this second episode, we track a former resident of Singapore Boys’ Home, Md Iskandar Abd Razak. Nineteen year old Iskandar has been in the child welfare and juvenile systems. Stealing a bicycle at 13 sparked a series of other offences including running away from 2 other children’s homes. A fresh robbery case in 2014 finally sent him through the gates of Singapore Boys’ Home. It may have been only a temporary shelter to Iskandar, but it was what helped him turn his life around. Meet the people who chose to journey with Iskandar and who made up the “village” that helped put him back on his feet again.
