Sun Village in Beijing provides refuge for children whose parents are in prison.

Reports from the United Nations suggest there’s widespread abuse going on in Chinese prisons. The children of inmates are also often mistreated.
They’re shunned by society and they fall through the cracks of China’s welfare system. Most of the children are left to fend for themselves. But there’s an organization working to change that. The World Vision Report’s Elise Potaka brings us the story from Beijing.
