Baby Dumping

One of the consequences of the poverty in South Africa is that new born babies are literally being thrown away.

Baby Safe intervenes in South Africa’s baby dumping crisis by providing a drop off point (the baby safe), where a mother can leave her baby anonymously, legally, and safely, 24 hours a day.

Here is a photo of Julie with a one day old baby girl left in the "Baby Safe" 5 minutes from our home.

She was was immediately picked up from the safe and our team kept her for 24 hours until she could be placed in a "baby home" where she awaits adoption.
