An awareness workshop on the dangers of child labor in the fields of tinsmith, mechanical and painting workshops, took place in Aden last Sunday 12th September. The workshop was organized by the Child Rights Protection and Care society in collaboration with Swedish Radda Barnen, in an aim to highlight some of the harms resulting from premature labor and anticipated injuries sustained by children. The workshop also addressed the government's efforts to demolish this phenomenon which has become a threat to the lives and future of children. The Head of the Child Rights Protection and Care society in Aden, Fatemah Yislem, clarified that the workshop aimed at addressing child employees, employers, and families, with the dangers surrounding children's health. She also elaborated that this dangerous phenomenon is not customary in Yemen, but, is connected to the difficult economic situation of families and due to an overall lack of awareness.
