Haiti's children

 |  NCR Today

A heart-breaking story about the children of Haiti, but one that impels immediate and long-term attention.

"Haiti’s children, 45 percent of the population, are among the most disoriented and vulnerable of the survivors of the earthquake. By the many tens of thousands, they have lost their parents, their homes, their schools and their bearings. They have sustained head injuries and undergone amputations. They have slept on the street, foraged for food and suffered nightmares."
