Haiti

As one of the poorest countries in the world (and the poorest in the Americas), Haiti has long faced problems associated with poverty and government instability. But it has also faced a history of destructive earthquakes; a 7.0 earthquake in 2010 devastated its capital, Port-au-Prince. The death toll was estimated to be at least 220,000 (some estimates claim well over 300,000 deaths) and 1.6 million were left homeless. Years later, the country has yet to recover.

    "Haiti's Social Welfare Institute, meanwhile, says the orphanage run by Olde Good Things' owner, U.S.-based Church of Bible Understanding, did not meet minimum national standards during a series of inspections dating to November 2012. It found sanitary conditions were "terrible," and there were too many kids for the amount of space, said Vanel Benjamin, a senior inspector with the agency. They also found not all kids were going to school and the staff lacked adequate training."
