One thing you notice in Haiti when you get there is the large number of street children. Even right outside the airport they wandering around, and around in the capital Port-Au-Prince, you see them everywhere. Many live on the street, others live with their parents in basic shelters.

Children sometimes have lost both their parents and have nowhere to go. Others have previously been slaves and have fled harsh conditions.

Some begging on street corners. Some clean car windows when they stop at traffic lights, and hope they'll get tips for his job.

Tragically, in many ways, of course.
