Child Labor Among Syrian Refugees

Hi my name is emotional_piano,

Today l am going to talk on Child Labor Among Syrian Refugees in this post. First you need to know what child labor is, child labor when a child’s rights are denied, Abuse or when a child is forced to work for lit or no pay. Syrian refugees are people forced to move away for their county because of war and more border to find safety in another country and Syrian refugees are Refugees of the Syrian Civil War are citizens and permanent residents of Syria who have fled the country over the course of the Syrian Civil War.

What job they do.

-they are a lot of jobs in the world growing-up do but few children do grow-up jobs (which is wrong). In CBS new Syrian refugees forced into child labor, the children were working as tailor in a factory they did not want but they needed the money for their needs or wants. Some children where at school in the age of 11 learning how to read because in the age of four they worked in jobs (they are not supposed to do). they are many types of jobs children do in a form of child labor do like:

Children doing car washing jobs.

-I once so a small boy around my age washing some car with some older men sit drown forcing him to wash the car (the boy was crying). Sometime children look for jobs so they get money or some are forced to work. The job is hard and not meant for kids.

b. children house helps.

-in child labor most of the time is when they wash house but among Syrian refugees it is few but still happens in some few parts you see the children look for jobs they get some money for their daily needs or wants. Some time it is the aunt or uncle of the kid who force the kid to work in the house.

Thank you for listen. Writ ways we can stop this child labor among Syrian refugees

    This topic links to another topic on topical talk which is "effects of war on children" link of the post:
    That post talks about the psychological and physical impacts on children and how their loss of their parents affect on their life and future, similar to this post which talks about the effect of war on children that leads them to child labor, force them to work although their body abilities are not compatible to. This leads us that war can cause disastrous effects on children and their future

    Child labor among Syrian Refugees is a wide spread catastrophe that need to stop. For instance, as Lebanon receives the highest number of Syrian refugees, we do everyday as lebanese citizens witness such problem. A study was done in 2016, shows that 37,000 Syrian Children were engaged in child labor, and for sure now in 2022 the number has skyrocketed as the economic catastrophe is worsening day after day. The studies also prove that 40 syrian children were mostly impacted with 6.7% of them aged 5 to 17 years.
    Relying on the internet:

    We know nothing than this needs to stop by:
    ●Strengthening internal security
    ●Increasing the cops monitor
    ● Funding and motivating organization to help protect those children by enrolling them in boarding schools
    ● imposing a great punishments and financial penalties on grown ups sharing with this crime.

    I found a link between this topic and the topic of refugees under the age of majority in the learning area and how children under the age of majority are exposed to many difficulties and may be exposed to physical and material exploitation, which leads to their search for sources to obtain money from, for example, work and accepting any type of work. I have read a research On the net about Syrian refugee child labor and its impact on children, the link is

    I found a link between this post and pne of tge most important rights which is “ Children’s rights “ , where children have the right to go to school as all children in the world too which this right is taken from them . Also it’s their right to live peacefully with mind peace not being aware to work and exhaust them selves they are not at the age of majority yet to be responsible for all these issues just to live in a world that pretend to save all children rights while refugee children are being tortured and obligated to work so they can live .
