A fire swept through an orphanage killing 13 children including infants in Haiti. According to a health worker, she saw 13 children’s bodies being carried out of the Orphanage of the Church of Bible Understanding in the Kenscoff area outside the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.
She said, seven were babies and six were roughly 10 to 11 years old.
The Church of Bible Understanding, based in Scranton, Pennsylvania, operates two homes for nearly 200 children in Haiti. It has operated in the country since 1977.
