Myrlande was a restavek.  When she was 11 she was beaten so badly she ran away to the streets.  Now at 15 she often sleeps here or in a playground, nearby.  To survive she has turned to prostitution.  She charges 75¢ per customer.   She had a miscarriage when she was 12 years old. (image by Christina Simons)
