This is the organisation which is “dedicated to rescuing, loving and caring for orphaned, abandoned and impoverished Haitian and Dominican children, demonstrating God’s love and helping each child find healing, hope, joy and new life in Christ”.
And they’re at the centre of a huge story. They were held up on Saturday as they headed for the Dominican Republic with a group of Haitian children.
Their defence has been that, ‘The mistake we made is we didn’t understand additional paperwork was required’.
The UN’s not impressed. Kent Page is with Unicef in Haiti and said, “You can’t just go and take a child out of a country – no matter what country you are in.”
Are they right to want to get children in need out of Haiti, even if the paperwork isn’t possible? Is there a danger here that bureaucracy could cost lives?
Or do you have grave concerns about this earthquake being used to remove children who should be going nowhere?
Do you have any concerns about the motives of organisations that want to introduce children to Jesus?
Or should this case not cloud the really important work many Christian organisation do?
