After the war started in Syria, many Kurdish people living in Syria fled to Kurdistan- Iraq. This situation influenced many children’s lives: they had to leave their schools and start working in business, even though they were still too young. Alan is one of those children. He has a difficult economic situation, his father and Alan himself are sick and medication, and because his father cannot work, Alan must work in the camps.
Food for thought…
This is a very short documentary (under nine minutes) but it does not fail to leave a lasting impression. We see Alan becoming the breadwinner for his family to keep himself and his father alive. The documentary further highlights how wars can rob children of their livelihood and future.
As always, don’t forget so share this documentary with your friends and family. Let’s unite and #establishties.
