The Stanger Hospital intern who found him immediately took him to the hospital and contacted Child Welfare SA - KwaDukuza informing them of the baby. Baby Thabiso spent the month of June recuperating at Stanger Hospital and received a second chance at life. Once he was well enough he was removed from the hospital to ensure he was not at risk of infection and placed in the care of the welfare. Baby Thabiso became the responsibility of social worker Siddiqa Syed who was tasked with his case. After placing him in secure care with an approved caregiver and meeting all his needs, Syed set about trying to find his biological parents. However, she has been unsuccessful to date. Baby Thabiso will have to wait a while longer before he can be placed in a forever home with a family of his own, as SAPS will first have to conclude their investigation. Until then however, the kindness of good samaritans and the hard work of his social worker will keep him safe and comfortable. On hearing about baby Thabiso recently, GBP Boiler Maintenance owner Burton Paliam approached Child Welfare SA - KwaDukuza vice president Shantha Nair at the Stanger Winter Fair 2016 with a bag full of blankets and goodies and tasked her with the delivery of the item to baby Thabiso. On Monday morning Nair accompanied by Syed visited baby Thabiso to monitor his progress and deliver his goodies. According to his caregiver, baby Thabiso has adapted well and is growing steadily. “He eats well and loves to sleep. He is a very pleasant baby and hardly ever cries. Our only problem is we do not have a cot for him and this worries me,” she said. Syed explained that providing cots has been difficult as they are expensive. “The funds we received for each child goes towards providing their formula and nappies and other necessities, so we have two babies at the moment without cots,” said Syed. She appealed to anyone who may have information on the parents or family of baby Thabiso to contact her on 032 551 2129. Anyone interested in making donations towards the cots can also contact Syed.
