“I do not enjoy this job”

12 year-old Aisha Amudi who explained that she has to work because of her family’s financial difficulties, said on average she earns between 500-1000 Syrian liras a day. Amudi said, “I have five brothers and sisters. I work to look after my brothers and sisters. My older brother also collects pieces of scrap from the garbage like me. I am not studying, and this is how we earn a living.” Armudi, who said she goes out with her plastic bags early in the morning, and heads to the garbage collection area and collects pieces of metal and copper, added, “It is very difficult to live in a tent. We have no water or electricity. I do not enjoy doing this job because my hands get dirty. It takes a long time to clean them.”
