In yet another incident, a baby boy, with his umbilical cord intact was found abandoned at a hypermarket in Tanjong Tokong, Penang.

Cops said a woman stumbled upon the newborn in the diaper changing room at the hypermarket about 5.40pm yesterday.

The baby was wrapped in a piece of white cloth and placed on a sofa.

The baby has since been sent to the Penang Hospital and was found to be healthy.

According to reports, babies are found abandoned throughout the country almost every week, with some of them even found dead.

Despite numerous programmes and awareness campaigns, the problem continues to persist.

Unfortunately, those responsible are not only foreigners, but also a large number of locals too.

As a volunteer worker, I personally see no solution to this problem which is probably becoming worse.

Unprotected sex seems to be rampant among our society and we are clueless as what can be done about it.

Does anyone out there have any idea how we can put an end to this cruel act of baby dumping?
