Faces of child labour

This gallery comprises images from various parts of the world showing different sides of child labour.

An Iraqi boy paddles a boat in the marshes near the small township of Chebayish, on the left bank of Euphrates, near Nasiriyah, 300 kilometres southeast of Baghdad, on April 6, 2013. The inhabitants of these ancient marshes are today suffering from the slow suffocation of the marshes due to drought which is altering their fishing patterns and the migration of birds and the breeding of water buffalo. During the regime of the late leader Saddam Hussein, sections of the marshes were drained.

  1. Well, I can hardly just hit the “Like” button on this can I? I’m appalled by the loss of childhood in the world you’ve revealed, and I’m inspired by your dedication to raising awareness about it.

    Best wishes,

  2. It’s difficult to comment on your posts, one risks seeming banal which is a shame, you report very well and your photographs are well made. I can only say, keep up the good work, and hope you are being published professionally or someday soon you will be. Thanks for your information.

  3. It hurts my heart to see these kinds of images and still they show the the “good” children jobs. When you think of children being exposed to all kinds of horrible abuse, girls mostly but also boys, it hurts even more.
