Abandoned baby of Filipina in Dubai brought home to Manila

by | Feature

A woman walks timidly on the streets of Deira while clutching a lump of blankets to her chest. She cries quietly in hopes that no attention will come to her.

This is how one may imagine the story of a Filipina mother who abandoned her 8-month-old baby girl.

Some reports claim that the Filipina was caught on CCTV abandoning her newborn at the Muraqqabat Police station in Bur Dubai.

The baby was endorsed to the Philippine Consulate last June via the Community Development Authority (CDA).

Other reports say that she left her baby in unspecified location in Deira, where a huge population of Filipinos work and live.

The baby was carried home from Dubai to Manila in an effort to reunite her with her mother and raise her in natural environment, wrote Khaleej Times.

The baby named Shamsa, a derivation of the Arabic word for sun, left the CDA which took her in since she was found.

An assistance to national officer at the Philippine Consulate-General in Dubai flew in with her after Baby Shamsa’s endorsement that same day. After landing, they were received by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The officer hopes that a reunion of the baby with her biological mother will happen soon after the DSWD finishes its evaluation of the mother.

Reportedly, the Filipino mother abandoned Shamsa before she was deported to the Philippines.

Unlike many babies, Shamsa was lucky to be home. Most abandoned children are left in foster care institutions in the UAE.

Abdel Aziz Al Hammadi, chairman of the selection committee for foster families in Dubai and director of the CDA’s family cohesion department, believed that their dedication to Shamsa’s file resulted in success.

“We were informed by the authorities that the girl’s DNA was matched with a Filipina woman who had recently been expelled from the Dubai. This made the girl’s biological mother known and thus opened the hope that the child could live with her mother in her natural environment,” Khaleej Times quoted Mr. Al Hammadi as saying.
