Season 12, Episode 11 Children of Haiti

First Aired: January 11, 2011

Alexandria Hammond's "Children of Haiti" tells the story of Haiti's abandoned and orphaned children through the experiences of three teen boys in the northern city of Cap-Haitien. One, who doesn't know his age, abuses paint thinner; another has been on and off the street since he was 8; and the third sometimes stays with his impoverished mother and stepfather, but as often tries to survive on his own.
