Dominican Hospitals tasked with finding Homes for Abandoned Children

Haitian mothers are deserting their children at Dominican hospitals. Arturo Grullon Hospital Director, Dr. Morel, says the hospital must take care of the children while CONANI looks for foster families or an orphanage.

She says mothers bring in a sick child, get them admitted, and then flee, never to return. She adds new policies will be implemented for Haitian mothers bringing in sick children, to stop the practice of child abandonment.
