Just like the abandoned child Shivansh, a few years ago, Amba was abandoned by her parents near a heap of garbage. Abandoned, bitten by stray dogs, a newborn was found from a garbage heap on the outskirts of Rajkot, near Mahika, in January last year. Former CM Rupani had kept no stone unturned in the child’s treatment and speedy recovery. Rupani paid her a visit and directed the doctors about treating her.
Covered in blood and dirt, Amba was first admitted to the Rajkot Civil Hospital where doctors found that she was bitten all over the body by stray dogs. She had somehow survived the ordeal after being abandoned, most likely by her parents.
Amba was later shifted to a private hospital for further treatment and surgery. She recovered in three months and was discharged from the hospital. She was handed over to Kathiawar Nirashrit Balashram orphanage in Rajkot.
Haresh Vora, President of the orphanage, had earlier said that Amba was put under the special needs category as she was physically and mentally weak. After a year of love and care by the orphanage staff, Amba recovered except for a minor issue with her back.
Italian Couple Adopted Amba
Rupani also shared his happiness when Amba was adopted by an Italian couple. Italian couple Planc Catherine and Gunthar have decided to adopt Amba and give her a bright future along with their love. While the to-be mother Catherine serves as a senior nurse, her husband is an IT consultant. The adoption procedure would be completed in five months after which the couple will take her to Italy, where she would be given Italian citizenship. Till now 350 children from Kathiawar Balashram have been adopted by couples residing in foreign countries.
