Georgette Mulheir, Lumos CEO, explains how the 2010 earthquake in Haiti caused a proliferation in the number of children living in institutions. Although seemingly caused by the increase in the number of children left without parents, she explains how most of these children have living parents, and that the orphanages leave the children vulnerable to abuse and trafficking.
