Costa Rica News – A Polish couple has been using their daughters to beg in Guanacaste.
People contributed significant sums and even offered housing but the situation continued. PANI and the Ministry of Migration were told of the situation and a warning was given to the parents.
Reports indicate that the begging continued and they were seen drinking water from puddles.
The youngest had infrequent diaper changes. Both suffered sun damage to the skin from the excessive exposure.
PANI, along with the Public Force, picked the girls up on June 19th, from a park in Liberia. Both were found to have anemia and colitis. The older one, accustomed to defecating in parks, now goes outside of the shelter to do so.
