Nearly 2000 Babies Abandoned in Bulgaria in 2014
Nearly 2000 babies were abandoned in Bulgaria during 2014, the main reasons being poverty and problems in education.
This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports and former director of the State Agency for Child Protection Kalin Kamenov in an interview for private NOVA TV station.
Kamenov pointed to problems in education and early school drop-out as some of the main reasons for the abandonment of the newborn babies.
The Deputy Minister listed poverty and unwanted pregnancy as constituting some of the other factors.
Kamenov insisted on the employment of health mediators who should be working on site to prevent this trend.
The psychologist Elka Nalbantova revealed that it was a common practice for Roma mothers to abandon their newborns at the maternity wards with the excuse that they have to look after their other children.
According to Nalbantova, there should be greater medical presence in the Roma neighbourhoods, as the majority of the mothers revealed that their pregnancy went unattended by a doctor.
She insisted that child benefits should be linked to the education of the children and the cares pertaining to them.
Nalbantova said that the reform has begun, but it was at its very early stage of development.
It became clear that 8 homes for children deprived of parental care are to be closed during the year.

Are psychologists that na?ve when they attempt to link the giving up of a daughter or son to abandonment that the decisions were based on a lack of interaction with health care specialist?
Comes down to money, in place is no money in that child therefore many see no love.
Such people should have all social assistance withdrawn. Its time to accept that we must abandon them and their crewel families until they learn self responsibility. Obvious those whom change and take a life of education should be given every help.
Perhaps the removal of psychologists and gift mothers that are heartless or in a state of confusion an option of sterilization then some way forward to progress other than mere saying that more medical personnel be a problem that could solve what is a life style choice to engage reckless sex. Same option should be also to a father who is equal in their responsibility.
Advocate that such a choice be universal for all citizens whom cannot afford.
