Caring for the unwanted

Pastor Lee Jong-rak runs South Korea's only private orphanage for disabled children. For years, he has had a drop box for parents to leave unwanted children. Authorities say the box is against the law, which bans abandonment, and are threatening to close down the orphanage, which houses 21 children, most of them infants.
