Child trafficking in Haiti

News of children being bought and sold is heartbreaking because there are little to no protections for children or parents in these situations. Time and time, we hear of parents giving up their kids, hoping they’ll get a chance a at a better life. And, time and time again we read reports of how many Haitian children are sold like commodities, or put into the slave trade. Despite all the reports, it is upsetting to learn that Haiti has no law against trafficking on children. Let’s hope that while they rebuild structurally, the leaders of this great nation will consider building laws that so that their precious jewels will be saved from this ungodly future.
