FIVE kids ages 6 to 1 were rescued by local social workers in Talisay City after they were abandoned by their mother.

Felipa Solana, Talisay City Social Welfare officer, said that the kids were rescued after a concerned citizen called them up.

Solana said when they conducted the rescue, they found that the youngest child, a one year old boy, was suffering from severe malnutrition and had to be admitted at the Talisay City District Hospital for immediate medical attention.

The other children are currently being kept at the Talisay City Women and Children Development Center in Barangay Maghaway. (JKV/SunStar Cebu)
