Ray of hope for dumped baby

The Sizwe Kupelo Foundation has stepped in to try and help a nine-month-old baby, born with a deformed leg, who was dumped by her biological mother in a village home in Ntlaza near Libode earlier this year.

The baby was left in the care of an elderly pensioner, Mandunakazi Mthambo of Mkhankatho village in Ntlaza, in May.

''She (biological mother) arrived here and told me that she had been impregnated by my grandson and that she was leaving the baby here,'' Mthambo, 64, told the Daily Dispatch yesterday.
