Not an isolated incident

This is not an isolated incident. In fact, a newborn baby was found dead in the same landfill just two months ago. Many other babies were found dead or abandoned in other areas of Sharjah.

On October 12, a month-old baby girl was found abandoned on the doorstep of a villa in Al Rahmaniyah district. On September 27, a three-month-old baby girl was abandoned in a pram in the women's waiting area of Al Kuwaiti Hospital. On September 21, a baby was abandoned in a parking lot in Al Majaz.
