UNICEF: Conflict in Syria forces children into child labour

The war is forcing Syria’s children to earn money to support their families.

Nearly five million children have been born in Syria since the civil war began, nine years ago.

The conflict has had a devastating effect on their lives, with many forced to drop out of school to support their families.

Aid agencies warn Syria’s deepening economic and currency crisis will push even more kids into child labour.
