낙타경주 기수 어린이들, 부모의 품으로 돌아오다

2006.11.16
Waiting to go home at the international airport in Dubai, these boys from Pakistan haven’t seen their parents for years. Like thousands of children from poor countries, they were sent to the United Arab Emirates to work as camel jockeys. SOUNDBITE, English, Rima Salah, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director: They lose their childhood, they are working like adults and they have no access to services, to health services and particularly to education.” Riaz has been away for 7 years, and he doesn’t even remember his age. SOUNDBITE, Hindi, Riaz, former camel jockey: “Sometimes we fell off and were injured.” In a breakthrough agreement, the United Arab Emirates in consultation with UNICEF banned the use of underage camel jockeys, and began sending the boys back to their families in Pakistan. Before they went home, these children received counseling, nutritious meals and new clothes. Some 500 camel jockeys have been sent home so far. And the UAE government will support them financially for two years to help them reintegrate into their societies. SOUNDBITE, English, Rima Salah, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director: “The success of this program shows when there is a commitment, that the commitment from the government is very important. This is a good experience for UNICEF to work in countries that don’t need us financially, but really need our guidance, particularly in realizing the rights of children.” At this children protection centre in Lahore, Pakistan, the children are waiting to be reunited with their families. They are also given psychosocial support, medical check ups, and a chance to once again play like normal children. *** Asset Name : A Group of Former Child Camel Jockeys Repatriated by UNICEF Asset Duration: 02 min 13 secs Shoot City: Various Shoot Country: N/A Shoot Date: Nov 24 2005
