Malaysian Welfare Home Under Fire For Locking Disabled Children in Special ‘Cages’

One netizen who was visiting her aunt at a welfare home in Malaysia discovered a curious sight at the facility: disabled children were kept locked in concrete cages. After photos of her discovery were uploaded on social media, the images immediately went viral and netizens were quick to attack the home.

The Handicapped Children’s Welfare Home reportedly keeps the disabled kids locked in “cages”  to keep them from hurting each each other, claimed the Welfare Department. The department further explained that the decision to keep them in there was to protect not only the special needs children but also the other young residents there, the Straits Times reported.
