A 13-year-old girl is still receiving medical treatment in Dawei District after being beaten unconscious in October by her employers, who demanded her parents hand over their four daughters as collateral for their debts. The case highlights the increasing desperation of some families, who are struggling to manage in an economy which has collapsed since the military coup.
