Turkey’s Family Ministry has taken over the treatment expenses of a 17-month-old Syrian baby girl who was abandoned at three months with a birth defect on the Turkey-Syria border. The abandoned baby girl was found by the Istanbul-based Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) when she was three months old with anomalies in her esophagus.
After the baby girl, who was found to have no connection between her digestive tract and stomach, received surgery in Turkey’s southern Hatay province, she was sent to a private hospital in the Turkish capital Ankara for better treatment.—APP
