The Challenges Facing Haiti's Children

The Challenges Facing Haiti's Children

We learn about the specific issues confronting Haiti's children, in the wake of last year's devastating earthquake.

This year's earthquake profoundly affected Haiti's children, leaving many of them without parents or access to schooling. The disaster also complicated the process through which many children are adopted by families in foreign countries. We explore the challenges facing Haiti's children in the wake of the earthquake.
