9 years old girl abused for the 2nd time in Jeddah

Rema, a third-grade student aged nine years old who was abused by her own mother two years ago, has been hospitalized again in Jeddah. This time her mother was seen to make lame excuses, blaming the domestic worker for abusing and causing burns on her daughter’s body. 

The third-grade teachers of the 91st elementary school in Jeddah where Rema studies, noticed the marks on her body. The teachers took an immediate step and took Rema to the maternity and children’s hospital in Al-Aziziah District where the doctors concluded after a thorough examination that she was severely abused with burns marks on her body. The doctors contacted the police and the social workers without wasting any more time.

Saleh serhan, who was the head of the protection home at Jeddah’s social affairs directorate immediately, formed a committee to observe the child’s condition and completely investigating the game.  It was decided that once she is recovered, she will be shifted to the social protection home until her case reaches a conclusion after being discussed with her family.

Ahmadyah al-Ghamdi, who is the supervisor at the protection home, said that both the parents have denied any illegal behavior. However, the child’s mother was even separated from her father. The mother still stands by her decision by saying that the domestic worker abused Rema.

Rema further explained that when she was abused two years ago by her mother, the authorities took part in this case and the mother was asked to swear to never abuse her child again.

Rema’s father has, however, accused the child’s mother, who was his ex-wife of the abuse and insisted that she has been abused several times in the past as well.
