Medjiery is an eleven years old Restvak child. She is working in the houshold of her owner all the day. Here she is showing how she sleeps at night. Like most of the Restaveks she does not sleep in a bed but on the floor. Restaveks are childslaves in Haiti, comming from poor rural families to live with strange families in the cities. The UN estimates the number of Restaveks to 225.000. Very often restaveks suffer from violence, sexual abuse and hunger.
