Orphanage in Haiti

CROIX-DES-BOUQUES, HAITI - JULY 12: Orphan kids pose for a picture in the Orphanage Bon Samaritain in Croix-Des-Bouques, on 12 July 2008 in Port au Prince, Haiti. Many families in Haiti are economically not able to care of their children. Sometimes the parents simply let the children abandoned on the street and never come back. These babies usually end in an orphanage (if they are not refused because in Haiti all kind of refuges are generally overfull). Although children living in an orphanage may be lucky for having at least a bed, most of them suffer from hunger and have to share clothes with the other orphans. Unicef estimates that there are around half a million orphans in Haiti. (Photo by Jan Sochor/Latincontent/Getty Images)
