Ali, 10, from Aleppo, Syria, works all day collecting plastic from garbage dumpsters around Bar Elias, Lebanon. Ali was in the fourth grade, but fled because of the airstrikes. He earns 2-3,000LL a day. He gives the plastic to the landlord of the two-room trailer where he, his parents and nine siblings live. “I miss school. If there was a school here I would go, but there is not.” Bar Elias, Lebanon, November 4th, 2013.
