APTOPIX Mideast Lebanon Syria Refugee Children [Duplicate]

In this picture taken on Sept. 20, 2013 and released by the U.N. High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR), a Syrian refugee boy Mahmoud, 15, cleans fish in a shop next to his home in an underground shelter where he lives with his family, in Lebanon. Mahmoud hasn't been to school in 3 years and now makes money cleaning fish at a small shop next to his home for tips. He started working at the shop one month ago and says he makes about $60/month. His parents and 8 brothers and sisters live in a 2.5m x 3.5m room in an underground shelter that used to be shops or storage. The boy is among a growing number of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and Jordan who are fast becoming primary providers for families who lack resources for basic survival, according to a newly released report by the U.N. refugee agency.
