According to reports, the woman gave birth earlier this month and only a few days after going home with the baby, went to Limassol general hospital to give them her son, saying she was unable to take care of him.

Limassol general hospital is caring for the baby and on Thursday, he will be transferred to Makarios children’s hospital in Nicosia as he has minor health issues.

Two social workers will accompany the baby.

As part of procedure, the boy will be under the wing of social services for three months in case the mother changes her mind.

Meanwhile, social workers are looking for potential foster parents for when the three months are up.

The case came to light on social media after a charity asked for donations for baby items which were desperately needed.

Donations poured in for the infant and more than enough items were donated.
