A young child's hands


A volunteer shares her experience of volunteering in an orphanage in Haiti, where, she says, she witnessed children intentionally malnourished in an attempt to motivate visitors to the orphanage to donate more - which was at least $350 per visitor.  

She describes how children were force-fed pig feed and deprived of love and one-to-one attention - whilst western donors raised money for projects for the orphanage and sent money and goods to the orphanage director, which were simply sold on at the local market.
