By David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) – Morgan Wienberg, a slight 22-year-old from Canada, was only 18 when she joined the wave of volunteers who flew to Haiti to help out after the catastrophic earthquake in 2010. Unlike most volunteers she has returned, putting off a medical career to fulfill what she now calls a life mission to rescue abused Haitian children exploited by unscrupulous orphanages. It’s simply outstanding what she is doing, and nothing fazes her,” said Alison Thompson, an Australian nurse and veteran relief worker who ran a camp for earthquake victims in Haiti and now runs rape clinics there. Wienberg was living in Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon, Canada’s westernmost territory, when her plans to study medicine at McGill University took a detour.
