The Guests, Turkey

Turkey hosts more than 2.5 million Syrians displaced by the ongoing war in the neighbouring state, more than any other country. Half of these Syrian refugees are children. 30 Syrian families live in this camp next to the road; most fled from Kobane or Aleppo a few months ago. Everyone, except a few pregnant women, works as day labourers in the surrounding fields, picking carrots or digging potatoes. They earn between 15 and 25 TL (5-8 EUR) daily. The children don’t go to school and must start working as young as 13. Kirikhan/Antakya, Turkey, 2016.
