Photo Series: Orphans at the Port-au-Prince Airport, Haiti

These children lost their parents and are waiting at the airport for a new life in the United States and other countries. Many Americans want to help Haiti by adopting homeless and newly orphaned children.

Many organizations are working miracles to help Haitian orphans find a new home. Administrative scrambles prevent many of these homeless children to leave Haiti. The orphans in these photos are waiting for a ride on the Volunteer Ministers charter plane that is scheduled to deliver over 150 Scientology Volunteer Ministers and medical personnel to Haiti today and return with exhausted medical personnel and refugees.

Photo Log: During last night US Military evacuates more than 100 Haitians in C5 Galaxy Transport

The old woman in this photo was totally exhausted and passed out shortly after I shot it. The little boy was injured in the quake. During the flight, I acted as his guardian.
