Two young brothers work as grave diggers in Syria


Ghassan works alongside two of his six children as grave diggers in a Syrian cemetery. Yazan, 15, and eight-year-old Jawad also help to clean and water the graves. The family is originally from Aleppo and lived under the rule of so-called Islamic State before they fled during the battles to recapture the city. Save the Children is working with the family through one of their partners on the ground, Violet.
