"Some of the groups that had rushed into the void were competent veterans. Others were what organizers from larger groups described as “humanitarian tourists”: nongovernmental organizations full of good intentions, but with limited supplies and experience.
“They added to the confusion,” Mr. Canale of Unicef said, “not to the solutions.”
"Humanitarian Tourists" Thank you, I needed this terms to explain the abstract thoughts in my head, these tourist get an addictive rush, the feel strong by seeing people weak.
Schadenfreude is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. This German word is used as a loanword in English and some other languages, and has been calqued in Danish as skadefryd.

You would think Haiti is the Land of Orphans but as you stated rightly that most of the Orphans have a Parent they just can not or will not support them. Finally the news station have learn what you said is true as some "Orphans" that were leaveing Haiti screamed to the border gaurds they HAD parents. Fortunaly the well meaning church group from Idaho was stopped and at least 10 of the 33 Orphans had parents and others may have also.
You should call your self Anderson Cooper or Geraldo Hobo. Good reporting sir.
Stop child traffic, stop poverty, stop enslavement, stop porn and prostitution. When will more people be brave enough to say the words "population control". The aid and assistance that should be given to a people who will give away their own children to fundamentalists must be a single tablet that produces chemical castration. One pill, no more children, in one gerneration, and not only for Haiti. Reproduction is not a right. It might not even be humane. The Church and Islam got it wrong. Wake up.
