Woman living in ‘extreme poverty’ found dead next to her one year old child.

A 34 year old Ugandan mother died in her flat on the Southside of Glasgow after becoming destitute when she lost her job. Mercy Baguma’s leave to remain in the country had expired and she was having to rely on donations from charities and friends to feed herself and her baby son. The one year old was found by his mother’s side. He was suffering from malnutrition and needed hospital treatment. Mercy has been described as “an amazing mother, sister, best friend and friend, loved by all.”
