Will You Buy?

Description

Brothers Ahmed, 15, and Mahmoud, 8, Syrian refugees, set out early each morning to sell candy bars and tissues on the street near where they live in Lebanon.

With Khalid, 12, the brothers often work as late as 10 p.m.

“We need to make money or we will starve. My father was shot in Syria and cannot work. My mother injured her back (working) in the fields,” says Khalid.

The boys meet up with other children and work in groups of three to sell their wares.

“We make less money this way but we protect each other,” says Mahmoud.

The U.N. children’s agency estimates that 2.8 million Syrian refugee children are out of school. Many of them work instead.
