10 year-old Mohammed dropped out from school to work and help his parents and three younger siblings. Everyday, the young boy roams the streets of Duma collecting, wooden doors and furniture from shelled houses as well as material like nylon for his mom to cook. Mohammed also collects metal or anything that seems valuable and sells it for extra money. His father has been working as a porter since he lost his job at a bakery five months ago. All bakeries in Eastern Ghoutta have shut down because of the siege. Mohammad says he is proud of what he does and does not feel humiliated from working in the rubble.
