Guts in Haiti

Haiti-52621bAdding to the nightmare unfolding in the aftermath of Haiti's devastating earthquake are reports that human organs are being illegally trafficked along with children. "There is organ trafficking for children and other persons also, because they need all types of organs," Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive told CNN's Christiane Amanpour last week. The reports have not yet been confirmed, but it's obviously an alarming accusation. Doctors Without Borders, an organization that was already working in Haiti before the earthquake, has been working hard to provide medical help for Haitians in need despite delays in getting necessary medical supplies and enduring aftershocks while treating patients. Read more about what they are doing right now in Haiti to help, and donate (as we did) if you feel so inclined.
