6-year-old Youssef works to feed family
(Zaman Al Wasl TV)- Youssef, 6-year-old child, just one among thousands of Syria's lost generation.

The school-aged child has not been enrolled in school this September in spite of his dream to be a doctor. The desperate living condition of his family stands as a huge barrier.

Youssef works in a workshop for motorbike maintenance, an arduous profession that makes it difficult for adults, where he spends long hours each day.

For safety, his family left the town of Senjar in northern Idlib province to a makeshift room in the town of Saraqeb.  

Youssef wishes he could have met his father who was arrested 5 years ago by the regime security while retuning back home from Lebanon. 

Since the war began, thousands of Syrians children have been forced into child labor, many of these kids lost their loved ones and homes in their country’s brutal war.
