Holidays in Eastern Ghouta

While children around the world celebrated Christmas by opening presents, Abou Mohammad took his children on their usual morning trip to the dump to work salvaging whatever scraps of metal and plastic they could find.
Abou Mohammad and his family had to flee their hometown of Eastern Ghouta and seek refuge in Daraa. The impoverished family have no choice but to go the city dump every day to collect plastic and metals to sell them for a few coins. Mohammad Abou Zeid documented the family’s hardship in the following photographs.
