Faisal, 5 year old in guardianship with a Saudi man

2013 Jun 21


Dar Al Diafa orphanage, government run
Five year old boy Faisal died six months after leaving the orphanage in the guardianship of a 33 year old married Saudi Man. The boy was beaten and burned due to incontinence issues. Within a week of placement, Faisal came back to the orphanage and begged to be allowed to return.
He died in the hospital from a brain hemorrhage shortly after being admitted with head trauma, internal injuries and burns. This is a probably kafalah guardianship - the articles list both adoption and fostering.
