"There is no milk, give water with sugar", the center for abused women leaves babies without food

"There is no milk, give water with sugar", the center for abused women

The show Fiks Fare brought a scandal with a center where abused women are sheltered, who have a protection order and the state sends them there.

The well-known center does not have food for children, even though mothers and babies are housed there. The difficult conditions in the center have forced many abused women to leave there. Even the employees themselves very easily show the door to anyone who complains or asks for something.

Two abused women sheltered in this center have shown the ordeal of suffering there, where they say that their children do not sleep all night because of not eating. The first victim, who has been in that center for 5 months, says that when she went she found 10 women, but they left because of the bad conditions. Wishing that they have not returned to the abusers!

Meanwhile, their main problem is food for children. "We are both pregnant, it's good for us that there is nothing, but for the children who are small, one is anemic, he cries all night to eat" - says one woman crying.

The investigative show brought the conversations of the abused women, simultaneously the mothers of two children, 9 and 20 months old, with the employees of the center. The latter tell women to feed their children with water and sugar.

In the mother's conversation with the employee, the latter, outraged, tells the abused woman several times "if you liked it, if you didn't like it, these are the conditions", while not forgetting to tell her not to leave the child with an empty stomach , but give him water with sugar.

The mother of one of the children says that her 9-month-old son has not eaten for 4 days, while the employee tells him to fry some flour with water. The employee's excuse for the lack of fruit juices is that they have too much sugar. "We don't bring fruit juices because they have a lot of sugar, give sugar water to children, even when you don't have milk, don't leave your stomach empty, give sugar water" - says the employee.

The employees are very strict with the abused women, if they want to stay, let them stay, otherwise they are shown the door.

The social worker, Marinela Muçobega, told Fiks reporters that this was due to poor management by the employees. She expresses regret for the situation created, "but from today we will find donors for milk and food for the children", while the employee says that this happened only once. "That's all we have," says the employee, thus acknowledging the lack of food in the center.

The center is private and operates with donors./TCH
