Kidnapped, then released. Now, what?

Haiti lacks social programs to help victims reunite with their loved ones and reintegrate into society after their kidnappers release them. They carry the burden of developing and applying their coping mechanisms to deal with the after-effects of kidnapping. Sadly, the government does not have an accurate number of kidnapped individuals, nor are the police included in the negotiations or coordination to release the victims.
