Abandoned Newborn Baby Rescued Back
A newborn baby girl (10 days old) was abandoned near Bus Depot 3, Vidyanagar, Kalaburagi on March 3, 2015. One of the general public noticed the baby and informed the concerned Anganwadi teacher. The Anganwadi teacher telephoned CHILDLINE 1098, Don Bosco PYaR, Kalaburagi and informed the matter. CHILDLINE team rushed to the spot, rescued the baby and admitted her at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Govt. Hospital, Kalaburgi. Doctors said that the baby is underweight but she is responding to treatment. The child would be transferred to the Govt. Adoption Home after the treatment at the hospital. This is the second instance of the kind in a span of 70 days. The public needs to become more sensitive and handover such children to Govt. facilities instead of abandoning them in unhygienic and dangerous places.
