Love For Haiti
For some Americans, the call to go help in Haiti was deeply personal. Four years ago, Muni Tahzib, a pediatrician in Hoboken, N.J., watched as her 3-year-old son, Max, nearly died from an allergic reaction to penicillin. During the six weeks he spent in intensive care, she recalled, "We received an incredible amount of love from absolute strangers."

A Tragic Baby Boom
On the heels of the devastating quake that claimed more than 200,000 lives in January 2010, Haiti experienced a population spike, with the birth rate tripling in urban areas within months. But it's been hard to find many ecstatic dads pacing delivery rooms. A shocking number of these newborns have been the products of rape.
