Haiti - FLASH : More than 200,000 minor children work in the worst forms of work
For his part, Olin Saint Cyr, the representative of the Ministry of Social Affairs, emphasized "the child at work is everybody's business, a situation that constitutes a real obstacle to the education of children. Despite legal sanctions, child labor and child trafficking continue to remain unpunished. Without a real involvement of all the actors of the society, the respect of the rights children will remain a lure."
Note that the International Labor Office (ILO) recalls that the law defines the child as a person under the age of 18 and the concept of "child labor" encompasses all activities that deprive children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity and affect their schooling, health and physical and mental development.
