Young children were forced to work on plantations, mining sites, construction of dams and buildings, looking after large herds of cattle with limited or no payment. These children worked without having any food. The united Nations children's fund come to the rescue of the children after receiving many pleadings.Some of the Arabs were caught and detained in prisons to serve the government for going against the rights and freedoms of children. These children now have been adopted as refugees in special homes and provided with basic needs like food, shelter, clothing and education.
