Today we went to the public hospital Befelatanana in Antananarivo. Mrs. Telina, the social assistant gave us an overview of the social cases she is working with at the moment. One incident was especially heartbreaking. Yesterday a 32 year old women was brought to hospital where she gave birth through a cesarian. The baby is presently in intensive care. According to a psychologial report the mum is disabled and has the mental state of a 2 year old. What makes the situation even worse is the fact that the baby is the result of rape.
