Kutchers and the kids

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have unveiled a new campaign against child slavery in earthquake-ravaged Haiti to ban the unethical practice.

The Hollywood couple joined hands to voice their concerns over the country’s “restavec” system, in which a child is sent to work as a domestic servant for another family as a means of supporting themselves.

The pair has claimed that the slavery prevents youngsters from gaining an education and experiencing their childhood.

“Let’s support the Haitian people, but let’s support them the right way, and let’s support all of them; don’t forget about the 300,000 children who are enslaved. It’s going to take a lot of loud voices,” the Daily Express quoted Kutcher as telling website Mashable.com.
