The reportage is about the most famous milk shake bar in Damascus, even in whole Syria. It is called Abu Shakir and is situated in downtown of Damascus, close to Parliament or Yousef al-Azmeh Square. Adnan al-Omari, also known as Abu Shakir, started his job in 1953 and still keeps his shop, but he is only supervisor now. His two sons are the main caretakers of the family business. There is economic crisis in Syria but Syrians still come to his place to buy fresh juices, shakes and fruit salads.

Characters:
Adnan al-Omari - the original owner of shop
Muhammad al-Omari - his son, one of two responsible persons

Syrian Refugees in Turkey
By Steven Wassenaar
19 Mar 2014

On the Syrian - Turkish border near Kilis, newly arrived exhausted
refugees from Aleppo meet those who choose to go back to the war-torn
city in Syria. Because Turkey is saturated with refugees, they did not
get help, work, or a place in a refugee camp. The newly arrivals
quickly discover that Turkey can no longer host them. In cities like
Kilis and Gaziantep, unsanitary surfaces, basements and garages, are
rented to penniless refugees. After a few months in Turkey, many
refugees return to Aleppo, where at least they have a house and a family.

Newly arrived refugees, disorientated, spent their first nights in bus
stations and other public places, until they find a place to rent at
high prices from local owners. At the border, young Syrian children
work as smugglers and help for some refugees to cross the border
illegally in both directions. Those fleeing the poverty in Turkey to
return to Syria say they have lost hope in a better future. Some say
they would rather die quickly from a bomb then slowly from misery.

Female Migrant Workers in Lebanon
Beirut, Lebanon
By Osie Greenway
26 Feb 2014

Migrant workers in Lebanon have little protection under current labor laws, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation. Many of Lebanon’s estimated 200,000 domestic workers who come to the country for work often face extremely challenging living and working conditions. It is estimated that there are thousands more foreign workers in the country. The Human Rights Watch estimated that in 2008, an average of one domestic worker died in Lebanon per week. Most of these deaths are a result of suicides or attempts to escape their employers. Even when they manage to escape, once their contract is broken, they no longer have identification documents and can end up in an even more deplorable situation. The situation for these migrant workers as a whole is difficult. But despite the challenges and dire situations for a majority of migrant domestic workers, some of them have also done incredible things in Lebanon with their personal strength and the support of their network in the country. Each of these women have a story. And each story tells a piece of the collective experience of a female migrant worker in Lebanon. Masaret fights quietly for the rights of migrant workers, from helping people in her network trapped in a bad situation to the people in her building without food. Rahel Zegeye, who is a domestic worker by day and a filmmaker/artist by night, fights louder. Rahel Abebe, who started a catering service for Ethiopian food in Lebanon’s capital of Beirut, and was Lebanon's first migrant worker to have a lawsuit filed on her behalf against discrimination. These are the female migrant workers of Beirut. Photos by Osie Greenway Text and Captions by Melissa Tabeek

Migrant Workers of Lebanon

This sign at St. George's Yacht Club and Marina, used to only say, "STOP SOLIDERE." But after Rahel Abebe, a migrant worker from Ethiopia, was discriminatorily denied entry to the St. George Yacht Club & Marina, the Anti-Racism filed lawsuit on her behalf. The result, most importantly to her, the sign now reads underneath the large writing, "STOP DISCRIMINATION." She has been in Beirut for nearly 14 years and also has a catering service, on the side of her work in a cafe, cooking Ethiopian food.

Child Labor in Yemen (with voice over)
Sana'a
By dustweare
09 Feb 2014

February 10, 2014
Sana'a, Yemen

Saleh Abdallah al-Raymi has been a labourer in the capital Sanaa since the age of seven. But his is, unfortunately, not an extraordinary case. He's one of more than a million child labourers in Yemen, and the numbers are increasing as the country is plunging deeper into its political and financial crisis.

Script:

Saleh Abdallah al-Raymi walking through the streets of Sana'a.

SALEH Abdallah al-Raymi (Arabic): “Here you find real heritage, and it's pretty. Tourists come here to visit.”

VO: “Through the narrow, historical streets of the old city in Sana'a. [Two-second pause] Through architecture you only find here in Yemen. A unique place. But also the workplace of many children.”

SALEH (Arabic): “My name is Saleh Abdallah Hassan Ahmad al-Maswari, and I'm 16 years old.”

Saleh BEING INTERVIEWED

SALEH (Arabic): “I get up in the morning, and then I go to school. I stay there till 12 o'clock, before going back home. At home I eat lunch, and then I go to work.”

Saleh WHILE HE'S WORKING

SALEH (Arabic): “I work with a wheel-barrow at the market place. I transport vegetables and fruit. Anything really.”

VO: “Saleh Abdallah al-Raymi started working when he was seven years old. But his story is not unique. [Pause for two seconds]. In Yemen there are 1,3 million child labourers. Children as young as 5 are seen working in the Yemeni capitol. And the work is tough.”

VO: “The country has seen years of political and economical unrest, and can't seem to turn the tide. As a result, many families are forced to send their children to work. For most of them, it's not a choice.”

Saleh WALKING TOWARDS THE HOUSE

ABDALLAH Hassan al-Raymi (Arabic): “I'm the father of Mohammed, the oldest, and then Saleh, Mokhtar, Aziz, Fikri, Osama, Amira, Uthnan. All in all we're twelve people in the family.”

VO: “Abdallah Hassan al-Raymi WANTS the best for his children. But kidney failure has made him unable to work. And with no functioning welfare state in Yemen, three of his sons are now the family providers. [Pause, two seconds] Their father has bigger dreams for them.”

ABDALLAH Hassan al-Raymi (Arabic): “For example for Saleh to go study, and then get work in company or at a factory. That's better. What they do now is hard. It's really hard work to be at the market with the wheel-barrows. But if they could work somewhere with a steady paycheck, that would be a lot better. Then they would be able to cover all the expenses we have.”

VO: “Their biggest worry right now is their landlord threatening them with eviction. They are not able to pay the full rent every month.”

STAND-UP: It’s here through historical streets inaccessible by car where childern like Saleh Abdallah al-Raymi are needed. The problem of child labor in Yemen has become severe, maybe too severe to be solved in the near future.

NOOR al-Kasadi, Child Protection Specialist, UNICEF (English): “It affect them negatively actually. It deprive the children ...”

VO: “He's working every day, but says he has been lucky. He hasn't been exposed to any kind of severe harassment. But, it's a hard life. A life he doesn't want for his younger siblings.”

SALEH (Arabic): “A man can do this job easily. But a boy isn't able to do it as well. [PAUSE] I see myself as a boy -- still.”
