Tell CNN to expose ongoing human trafficking of orphans in Haiti

Corrupt government officials in Haiti involved in Human Trafficking at Son of God orphanage outside Port-au-Prince.


The time has come to share the results of a 15-month investigation into suspected human trafficking at the Son of God orphanage in Haiti.  I need your help to spread this news to the CNN Freedom Project by signing our petition today. 


We are petitioning CNN to bring their international media voice and passion for ending slavery into the Son of God Orphanage. Please urge CNN to expose the corruption within the Haitian government, and allow international organizations to secure the children from the child traffickers who are now controlling the orphanage.

The evidence in hand shows:

> Children have been and are currently being trafficked from the Son of God Orphanage. The evidence on human trafficking leads back to the Son of God orphanage. The orphanage director was imprisoned in July as part of a police-led operation that resulted in his conviction of trafficking a child.

> Haitian investigators have told our team the evidence suggests organ harvesting and trafficking as well.

> Numerous photos show extreme physical abuse and neglect. U.S. and Haitian doctors have documented cases of severe abuse and neglect including burns and broken bones.


> As recently as October 10, American volunteers took children with late-stage starvation out of the orphanage and to local doctors. Without this intervention, the doctors confirmed the children could have died of starvation.

> After boldly bringing these facts to the attention of government officials, American citizens received death threats from those associated with the current orphanage leadership–documented by the Haitian police.

This orphanage must be shut down. Other orphanages are ready and willing to take these children. Please urge CNN to cover this story and work to close this orphanage and re-locate the children immediately.


This trafficking is REAL, it is documented, and it must be stopped now. In ADDITION to signing the petition, please:

Tweet this right now, using hashtags #cnnfreedom, #endslavery, and #not_for_sale

Call your elected officials and forward them this article. We can provide the file of evidence DIRECTLY to their office for further investigation.

We need coordinated, concerted pressure. We believe the best chance these children have is through a focused effort to bring international media and political attention to their abuse, and neglect. Children in Haiti at this orphanage are being trafficked. They are being abused, burned, and starved. We have other orphanages ready to take these children, but need to bring MORE focused attention to this matter so that official action will be taken now. Take time to stop this. Sign the petition, and get everyone you know to do the same. Thank you!

Thanks Tom! I learned about this from Seth Barnes at AIM just after you. Praying for voices, action, and attention, and that those that will receive the children are ready for the care that will be needed. My heart is breaking.

Thank you Tom for giving voice to this desperate situation. Nothing is impossible with God. Rejoicing over each and every person who has signed the petition. This has the potential to not only have an impact on the lives of the children at Son of God Orphanage, but on the entire child welfare system there. God is GREATER!!! :)

Robert Mudd,
I just posted your info on Amber Lyon’s wall. I figured you have already tried contacting her, but maybe repeated use of your name and number will get some response.
Praying for swift deliverance for those children.

I need to sign a petition to help stop abuse? And CNN needs 10,000 signatures? I have never been asked to sign a petition about CNN covering any other story!!! This offends me, that 10,00 people have to beg to get coverage for this travesty. Please cover the story, for the sake of the children!
