I have just answered your question where you posted it in the Cybershrink Forum.. This time you mention that she doe not have medical aid : any competent provincial hospital or clinic should be able to assist and to refer her to a specialist psychiatric facility which could care for her properly.
This situation could indeed have serious implications for her unfortunate son, and maybe this could be used to benefit both of them. You could perhaps approach Child Welfare to express concern that she is clearly suffering from a serious psychiatric disorder which leads her to neglect herself, an you are worried that this must also be leading to neglect of the best interests of the child. Child Welfare should be empowered to visit the home and interview her, to asses whether she is competent to care properly for her child and herself, and would have a duty to protect the child. This could include approaching a court to declare that she is unfit currently to care for herself or her child, and needs formal assessment and treatment
