Although many mothers are forced to give up their children, it would be much more stabilizing to the community if the family unit could be held together.
Many mothers because they became pregnant at any early age, fell into the trap of being an uneducated family head desperate to provide for their children. They subsequently fall victim to men who take advantage of their situation. These men will often abandon them if they become pregnant or boring to them.
This is not a problem unique to Haiti. We are seeing this happen all too often in the U.S. as well. The erosion of the family unit plagues many countries.
Where we can, we are going to attempt to help mothers who want to keep their families together, but are just finding the struggle extremely difficult.
