    HORRIBLE! Foetus of baby boy DUMPED at an illegal dumping site

    This is horrible! A foetus of a baby boy was found DUMPED at an illegal dumping site in Kariega on Monday morning.

    HORRIBLE! THE LITTLE FOETUS WAS FOUND AT A DUMPING SITE

    According to police spokesperson Captain Andre Beetge, the body of a small male foetus was discovered at 10:00 on Monday morning.

    “Police in Kwanobuhle were alerted to an open field on the corners of Ponana Tini Street and Mondile Street, Kwanobuhle where the open field is regularly used by persons in the area as an illegal dumpsite.”

    POST-MORTEM WILL DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF DEATH

    Beetge said an inquest docket was opened at Kwanobuhle SAPS, and the body removed to Gelvandale mortuary, where a post-mortem will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

    “Police are looking for witnesses and information on who the mother of the unborn baby or foetus is in order to determine the circumstances under which the unborn baby ended up where it was found.”

    DO YOU HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON THE MOTHER OF THE BABY?

    Any person that could assist police with this investigation can contact SAPS Kwanobuhle, Detective Captain Tommy Whitebooi on 082 441 8129 or alternatively contact Crime Stop at 08600 10111.

    DESPERATE MOTHERS URGED NOT TO DUMP THEIR BABIES

    “Abandonment of infants in South Africa is, unfortunately, a common occurrence.

    “Many of these children are left to die, or simply abandoned, in dustbins, open fields, public toilets, or on train tracks,” The Door of Hope organisation said.

    The organisation knew that something needed to be done

    “In 1999 the Berea Baptist Mission Church said, “something needs to be done”. Under the leadership of Pastor Cheryl Allen, the church made a hole in their wall and a ‘Baby Box’ was installed allowing for mothers to leave their babies any time day or night for the church to take care of them,” the organisation said.

    The moment a baby is placed, care workers on duty receive an electronic signal alerting them. The baby is taken in and the anonymity of the “donor” is ensured.
