Aid Group Steps in to Find Families of Haitian 'Orphans'

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

A group of ten American Baptists accused of kidnapping 33 Haitian children, who the group members said were orphans, has raised complicated questions about the intersection of good intentions and misguided actions. One thing is certain: not all of the 33 children were orphans. In fact, the majority of the children do have families. The group that was asked to look after the children following their ordeal is SOS Children's Villages.

Heather Paul is the CEO of SOS Children's Villages — U.S.A. She gives us the latest news on how the children are doing and share's her group's perspective on what the American Baptists did.
