Description

It has been more than one month since Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church, was left nearly speechless by a 12-year old girl in Manila last January. In tears, she asked the head of the Catholic Church why God allowed children like her to be abused and prostituted. It shone a light on a sensitive issue that is of growing concern particularly in the capital Manila. Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports from Manila.
