North-west Syria

Situation Report

More than a year ago, Basem was forced to take his son, Rashid, out of the third grade to work.

Basem’s daily wage of 40 TRY was not enough to meet his family’s needs. Rashid came back home every day exhausted from work, hoping to return to school one day.

When an NGO started a cash-for-work program in the Atma camps, Basem got an opportunity to earn more income. Rashid was able to return to school shortly after his father started this work.
