Haitian twins abandoned at Santiago hospital
A Haitian mother has abandoned her two twin sons at the Arturo Grullon Public Hospital in Santiago. The hospital director says that it is not unusual for mothers to cross over from Haiti and leave their children at the public hospital, trusting they will have a better life.
Hospital director Rosa Morel said that the children, who were born in Haiti, were brought to the emergency center with health problems. The twins were hospitalized when the mother brought them to the hospital, but she has not returned.
Dr. Morel said that if the mother does not return, the Children’s Court would choose a home where they will be sent.
She said that measures would be taken to reduce the number of Haitian mothers who abandon their children.
