Hama - SMART

Most of the detainees' children and victims of Russian and Syrian government's bombings suffer from poor living conditions, as several of them lost their breadwinner and suffered from the family dispersion. That forced them to sell gum and to beg for their own needs, as two girls SMART met in Hama.  

A 10-year-old girl, nicknamed Aya, is a displaced girl from Homs, she says, "My father is detained, and my mother works as a housemaid… I begin the streets to help my mom raise my siblings."  

When Aya was asked about school, she clarified that the wishes to go to school but her family cant cover the school expenses.

Another displaced girl from Aleppo, nicknamed Huda, says, "My father was killed in the city of Aleppo, our house destroyed. My mother married another man, who does not allow me to come back home if I did not sell a box of chewing gum."

The people of Hama city clarified that child labor had been around for four years without any attention by the Syrian government institutions that control the city, adding that most of the exploited children were displaced from the governorates of Aleppo, Idlib, Homs, and al-Raqqa.  

Last Wednesday, an official of the file of detainees from the city of Darayya, Southern Syria, reported that they obtained information that the Syrian government delivered the names of 1,000 detainees tortured to death in the Syrian government prisons.  

Earlier, the Amnesty International documented the deaths of more than 17,000 detainees over the last five years in the Syrian government prisons, pointing out stories it described as "horrifying" about torturing methods in the Syrian government security forces' prisons.

In 2016, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) said that about 50 million children worldwide "were plucked out of their roots," adding that in 2015, around 45 percent of the Syrian and Afghani refugee children were put under the protection of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). The UNICEF added that 2.1 million children between the ages of 5 and 17 years dropped out of school in Syria and neighboring countries.
