|Newsweek this week reported on the alleged kidnapping of Chadian children by the French group Zoe’s Ark. “One of the worst outcomes is the loss of confidence and trust [in aid groups],” Melissa Winkler, IRC emergency communications director said. The article noted the IRC’s ‘well-organized resettlement’ of the so-called ‘Lost Boys of Sudan’ in the U.S. Newsweek’s Web site also included an audio interview with Jane Warburton, IRC child and youth protection and development unit director, about the alleged kidnapping, its repercussions and the IRC’s work.
