Abandoned babies find shelter in Nanjing

An abandoned baby is received by Baby Heaven, an infant shelter set up by the local child welfare institute to care for unwanted infants in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu province, Dec 31, 2013. The shelter has received nine babies since it was founded on Dec 10, and most of them have serious diseases or disabilities, according to the institute. Child abandonment is a criminal offense in China and some have criticized the infant shelter for encouraging people to abandon their infants. The infant home aims to provide shelter for unwanted babies, not encourage abandonment, it said. [Photo/Xinhua]
