The sound of whimpering was heard coming from a trash pile in an illegal squatter camp called Freedom Park. A group of young boys searched the trash expecting to find a puppy, but instead they found a newborn baby that had been thrown away. Hours old, with a wet umbilical cord, his tiny body was wrapped in plastic. He had blisters on his neck where his mother had attempted to strangle him.
He was brought to us in a cardboard box.
He has now recovered and is a healthy vibrant boy with a brilliant smile. The name he was given by his rescuers is a name that means, “To make peace with someone.” He is a boy with so much hope for the future.
