A Haitian boy looks for shoe-shine customers in Dajabón, Dominican Republic.

Many Haitians, including children, cross into the Dominican Republic in an attempt to escape poverty, but the risks are also great. An estimated 2,000 Haitian children are trafficked across the border annually. For those who cross willingly, opportunities for any sort of work are few. UNICEF supports efforts to prevent child trafficking and to educate communities about its risks to their children.
