Jimmy Jean-Louis, who plays “The Haitian” on the hit NBC series Heroes, has become a Goodwill Ambassador for the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) to help raise awareness and support for children in Haiti. The campaign, called “I Too Am Haiti,” seeks to engage the U.S. public in resolving forced labor, trafficking and exploitation of Haiti’s children.

“The exploitation of children is a stain on human dignity,” says Jimmy. “It is within our reach to create a better future for these children.”

The U.S. State Department reported in 2008  that “Haiti is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children trafficked for purposes of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation.” As many as 200,000 children are the victims of this type of exploitation. We commend the work that Jimmy Jean-Louis and PADF are doing to help raise awareness of this tragedy. To learn more — or donate — please visit the official site here.
