A new study has found United Nations peacekeepers stationed in Haiti between 2004 to 2017 fathered and abandoned hundreds of children there. The study is based on interviews with over 2,000 Haitians who lived near the U.N. peacekeepers’ bases and who spoke about the sexual exploitation and abuse of Haitian women and girls as young as 11 years old. The study is the latest evidence of international peacekeepers’ pattern of sexual abuse in Haiti — which included trading food for sex with women and children in desperate poverty.
