“Abandoned” Child Found in Mall Gets Reunited with Relatives



A day after we posted the story about a child who was “abandoned” inside a mall in Quezon City, the child is said to have reunited with her relative, Inquirer.net reported. 

Child Alone Mall Reunited Family

In our story, we asked everyone who have read it to share it until leads or whereabouts of the parents or family members of the child are found. With over 19,000 shares on Facebook, our joint efforts appeared to have worked. This goes to show how powerful social media is.

According to Inquirer’s post:

Before midnight Wednesday December 17, a cousin of the child’s mother contacted the woman who wrote the original post. The cousin said their relatives were not aware of what the mother did to the child until they saw the viral Facebook post.

“She told us she was taking the child to her auntie. We didn’t know that’s what she did,” the woman, who requested anonymity, quoted the relative as saying.

The relatives were able to coordinate with DSWD through the woman’s help. The grandmother will have custody of the child, the woman said.


Good job guys!
