The condition of a month-old Indian baby girl, whose rickshaw-puller father was forced to take her to work when her mother died, is improving, doctors say.

Damini has been taken off life-support and she is now stable, Dr JK Mittal of the Fortis hospital in Jaipur said.

She was taken to hospital on Sunday weak, underweight and suffering from septicaemia. Her father had had to carry her in a sling as he worked.

Meanwhile, people moved by the family’s plight have been sending them money.

In the week since the story was first published on the BBC news website, money has poured in from around the world to help Damini and her father Bablu Jatav.
