NPR & Time Give Good, Brief Overviews on Haiti's Children

Posted by: Jorge Just

Time Magazine is doing some good reporting on the plight of Haitian children after the earthquake.  Child traffickers have been seen all over Port-au-Prince, luring hungry children into trucks with the promises of food (read "Human Predators Stalk Haiti's Vulnerable Kids" and "Haiti's Children: Save Them, Don't Just Take Them")  But as the recent case of Laura Silsby and the New Life Children's Refuge shows, evil men in trucks are only the most obvious face of child trafficking.  

This NPR story gives a quick (less than five minutes) rundown of what's happening there.  It's a good overview of the problem, and well worth a listen.
