A 12-year-old homeless Nigerian child has given birth to a baby at a refuse site.
Child’s Right and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN) shared a photo of the child mother and her newborn baby who she named Miracle on Facebook and wrote:
“A 12-Year-Old #StreetChild, Gives Birth to Another Street Child in a Refuse Site in Nigeria. Yesterday we had a naming ceremony and the child was named MIRACLE.
His mother is a 12-year-old girl and a homeless child whose only shelter is a dumpster at a dump site meant for collecting recycles, such as cans, aluminum, coppers and used plastic bottles.
As at yesterday morning, she was locked out of the place together with her baby.
