Forced to Grow Up

Khaled is a Syrian child, among thousands who had to flee the war and seek refuge in Jordan. His family is made up of six brothers, Khaled is the oldest at 13 years of age. His father was killed in the crisis and the family had no one to provide for them except Kahled. He had to find work, but is exploited by the job owner and given 5JDs a day while working from 8 am until 9 pm without any rest. Is there hope for Khaled that the world would know of his situation and save him from losing his past, present, and future?
