Americans Were There to Help, Not Kidnap Haitian Children, Pastor Said

The detained Americans are the first to be charged in connection to child trafficking since the country's devastating earthquake Jan. 12. The quake reportedly affected around 3 million children, in many cases separating them from their parents and leaving many vulnerable to traffickers.

So this is just something we are working collectively with those organizations that are actively trying to help children, people on the ground, be alert for this kind of danger."
