'Restavecs', Haiti's most vulnerable
Restavecs are children who have been given up by their families to work in often abusive situations. The United Nations has condemned their situation as a modern form of slavery. Some have been sold by their parents; others were sent away because there were no schools in their home villages. But they all have one thing in common: the earthquake has made their already bad situation even worse.
