"Whenever we went to class there were bombs." Razan, a young Syrian woman, had always done well in school and prided herself on her good grades. But as she took an important test, she couldn't concentrate. "Bombs were going off right nearby during the exam session. My stomach hurt from the stress."

AMMAN (Nov. 15, 2013) — Ahead of International Children's Day on November 20, CARE voices our concern about Syrian refugee families becoming increasingly reliant on child labor to meet basic survival needs such as food and rent. According to the latest Jordanian government estimates around 30,000 Syrian children are currently working in Jordan. The International Labor Organization warns that the number of child laborers in Jordan may be even higher. In Lebanon, at least 50,000 Syrian refugee children need to work to support their families.
