The collection from Christian Aid Ministries was captured by the 400 Mawozo gangs on Oct. 16. There are five kids in the crowd of 16 U.S. residents and one Canadian. Their Haitian driver was also kidnapped.

The head of the 400 Mawozo organisations has warned to execute the prisoners unless the gang’s needs are satisfied. Authorities have said the gang was asking $1 million US per person, although it wasn’t instantly obvious that involved the kids in the crowd.

The U.S. government has asked U.S. citizens to leave Haiti because of the nation’s digging chance and the critical shortage of fuel. Canada declared on Friday it was removing all but necessary help from its embassy.
