NA WA O! See The ‘Baby Bin” Created For Parents Who Wants To Dump Their Unwanted Babies (Photos)

A South African church has installed a baby bin for desperate mothers who do not want their babies.
.
According to The Sun UK, the church claims to have saved thousands of lives. The Berea Baptist Church in Johannesburg installed the hatch so tots could be leftanonymously by parents unable or unwilling to care for them.
.
When it was installed in 1999, up to 50 babies were being dumped on the streets and left to die by their parents every month.
.
Among the horrific stories highlighted by the centre include babies being flushed down toilets, left at rubbish dumps and thrown from buildings.
.
But the Door of Hope says it has saved the lives more than 1,500 lives through its kind-hearted charity work since.
.
Many of those are left in a metal hatch attached the a wall on the roadside.
.
Inside the stainless steel hatch, the babies can be placed on a soft pillow and left for staff. Once opened, a sensor detects movements and alerts staff at the centre through an alarm.
.
The newborn orphans are taken in and cared for by staff at the South African centre. Indeed the first child taken in by the centre has gone on to return to the Door of Hope as a volunteer.
.
Georgina Smith, 19, was left in 1999 aged just 14 months. After being raised and eventually adopted by an American family, she has returned to Johannesburg to help care for abandoned tots. Speaking to Al Jazeera, she said she “wanted to learn more about where [she] came from”.
.
Delighted staff at the centre said of her return:“Georgina comes back to spend some time helping and loving the babies currently in our care.
.
“What an honour and a privilege to see her again. She has grown into a lovely young lady.
.
“She continues to be a symbol of hope to all abandoned and orphaned children.”
