The tragedies of war forced Muhammad to leave his school after displacement and work in dangerous places. Hundreds of thousands of Syrian children need support, education, and basic rights that the regime and Russia have denied them.
Muhammad is one of the thousands of Syrian children who have been forced to work at a very young age because they have lost their opportunity to study in schools due to the ongoing war in Syria.
World Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20th every year around the world with different activities related to children’s rights and welfare. It aims at raising awareness about child labor and child exploitation in working environments where children are employed for long hours without any protection or benefits such as healthcare insurance or parental leave benefits.
World Children’s Day is an opportunity for us to come together as a community to celebrate children and their potential.
