Born in the bush.....

This little baby was brought yesterday morning by the Police to Amecet. he looked okay, his weight was 2.7 kg. There is of course again a sad story behind:
The mother is mentally disturbed, she was travelling through that village. But she was tired and asked a local family if she could rest there. They saw she was pregnant and brought her to the health centre and she got treatment there. They gave her food and shelter, to rest a bit before travelling further.
Saturday morning very early, the mother gave birth, alone in the bush, nearby the place where she was resting. After giving birth, she came back in the hut and slept. A bit later someone went outside and heard a noise, he found the baby laying in the bush. They took the baby to the health centre to check and later also the mother. The mother denied that the baby is hers, doesn't want to see the child, she is planning to travel on. They tried to get more information from her, but she talks and makes no sense.
We called the baby Benjamin, he is a cute little boy and looks healthy, he drinks well and we pray that we will find relatives or otherwise a good foster/adoption family.
