Baby L

Baby L was born into difficult circumstances in Joe Slovo Squatter Camp. This prevented Child Services from discharging Baby L into her mother’s care. Before being discharged on 17 March 2010 into the care of Atlantic Hope, Baby L was treated for chronic gastro, sepsis and anemia at the New Somerset Hospital. Atlantic Hope provided this little girl with a place of safety until the following day when social workers could place her in more permanent care.
