Taiz-Yemen – 27/6/2016
The ongoing war in Yemen have contributed to the spread of child labor especially in the city of Taiz in southern Yemen, where they forced numbers of children to work at an early age in various trades and business in order to support their families in the middle of the difficult conditions that prevailed in Yemen.
Despite the different trades and businesses children work in, in the city of Taiz, south of Yemen, however, it has one reason, which is the bombing and destruction caused by the ongoing war in Yemen, which forced numbers of children to work at an early age to support their families in the middle of the difficult conditions prevailed in Yemen.
Rights activists illustrate that many Yemeni families rely on their kids to provide a source of living, while others argue that the main reason is the unemployed parents or those who neglect their children.
it is worth noting that child labor is one of the negative phenomena that negatively affects the society in general and children in particular as it affects the psychological situation of the children in the future.
