With it working children program observedthat most of children are unaware about their basic life skill education. Becausethese children are working in hazardous atmosphere and are prone to get abovementioned diseases. More children in cities are working in cotton factories and theyare becoming T.B patients and more are infected with chest diseases. In monitoringvisit we saw in rural areas that more children are working with agriculture in fields.For us this is very terrible experience that the children are doing pesticide spray onthe crop and as the result of this exercise they have to face a lot of respiratorydisease. Now we can understand that health care is extremely important for thesechildren because many children work for long hours, which is hazardous to theirphysical and mental health. Medical check-up and medical treatment facilities isvery must for them.Photos Gallery of working children program Caritas Pakistan Faisalabad
