Swansea schoolchildren fight to end Haiti child slavery

Schools in Swansea are supporting a campaign to bring an end to child slavery in Haiti.

Given up by desperate parents who are unable to support them, the children are sent to live with host families - who often exploit them as servants.

Dr Jean-Robert Cadet heads up the organisation trying to help the children. He is also a former child slave and does not know his own age or real name.

He spoke to the BBC's Jason Mohammad.
