Miami Archdiocese Leads Haiti Orphans Rescue

El Nuevo Herald, Luisa Yanez, Alfonso Chardy and Sergio Bustos Posted: Jan 20, 2010

MIAMI--Hundreds of orphans affected by the earthquake in Haiti that killed over 50,000 people will be rescued and adopted as part of a mission lead by the Miami Archdiocese, according to El Nuevo Herald.

Randolph McCrorty, an executive director of Charities and Legal Services for the Catholic Church, told the daily they will try to follow a plan developed 50 years ago to bring children from Cuba into the United States.

Cubans who were among the 14,048 rescued through the Pedro Pan program are planning to join the effort to aid Haitian children.

Our situation was a little different, but we know how these children are feeling, Elosa Echazbal, told the Spanish daily.

McCrorty said on Thursday during a press conference that the Church has identified a temporary shelter in Broward County to shelter the children but wouldnt disclose the location at that time.

As soon as El Nuevo Heraldo and The Miami Herald reported on their websites about this operation they received an influx of e-mail from readers expressing interest in adopting these children.
