   During a recent congressional trip to Haiti to assess the January 12 earthquake's impact on child welfare, New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand paid a visit to an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince. In addition to visiting the orphanage, Gillibrand and colleagues met with Haitian government officials and NGO leaders to discuss ways in which Haiti's children can be assisted. Senator Gillibrand now plans to work with her Senate colleagues on new legislation to help bolster Haiti's child welfare system, according to a press release from Gillibrand's office.
