Take a stand to end slavery
Child Labor in Iraq
Here are some pictures from north of Iraq, which show some children that they have been obliged to work outside in order to get some money for their families and how they have been treated like slaves. Child labor is one of the main problems here in Iraq, many children are working outside of their homes, they are far away from their mothers' arms, they don't have rights to live just like a normal child, to live with thier family, most of them are not even be able to go to schools, their parents just want them to get them money, poverty is the main reason for this, which make those parents to let their children to go to outside and find a job. Unfortunately I couldn't take more photos of them, because they were ashamed and afraid to be on cameras, so I took these photos secretly, just to show the world how some children are struggle to get some money in Iraq. I was so sad to see those children work just like that day and night, without any other place to go, without being with their families.
