Syrian refugees in the Zaatari refugee camp, Mafraq, Northern Jordan, speak about their stories and perspectives. Full transcript and translation available on request.

00,57الجيش السوري هو من آذاني وهو المسؤول عن تحطيم جسدي والتسبب بعدة كسور فيه ، لقد كسر لي أضلاعي الاربعة اضافة لكسر في الجمجمة وانقراص في العمود الفقري ، خرجت من الاعتقال وفي كل سنتيميتر من جسدي كسر.
الكسور هذه هل هي بفعل الجيش النظامي؟ نعم من الجيش هل تم اعتقالك من الطريق العام؟ لا . لقد تم اعتقالي على أحد حواجز الجيش.

1,25 سقوط البراميل المتفجرة على منزلنا جعلت طفلي بسبب الخوف بفقد النطق .
هل فقد السمع والنطق؟ بالنسبة للسمع فقد خف لديه كثيراً فهو يسمع لكن بشكل خفيف ، أما النطق فقد فقده تماماً

1,44 حالات الاغتصاب كثيرة فهي جرت في عدة قرى وليس فقط في قرية "صيده" ، عندنا في خلال عمليات الاقتحام كانوت يحضرون النساء والاطفال "الجيش النظامي" , احدى المرات جرى اشتباك بيننا على جسر "صيده" فوضعوا امامنا سبعة أطفال أمام الدبابة بعمر طفلي..هل وضعوهم كدروع بشرية ؟ نعم .
وقبل هذه الحادثة جرى بيننا اشتباك على طريق داعل فوضعوا أمامنا فتاتين عاريتين ، فأدرنا ظهورنا وانسحبنا للخلف، لقد انسحبنا.

Syrian Scarvengers in Beirut
Beirut, Lebanon
By Elie-Louis
31 Dec 2012

They are called “Scarvengers”, “garbage kids”, or “Syrian kids”, like Ali and Salem, two Syrians that we can meet in the eastern suburb of Beirut. They are at best twenty years old altogether, but the strength of their handshaking suggests they are the double. Everyday, they go back and forth between the highway and the sea to find any kind of metals that can be resold.
Whereas they were also Palestinians or Egyptians, this “job” is now only for Syrians. All came because of the war, leaving their family there, sending it money every month. Mawour have left his pregnant wife since 7 months. Collecting cartoons, he earns around 10 $ per day, 300 $ per months, and try to send to her wife what he can save. A very low salary that has been lowered with the big afflux of Syrians men looking for jobs to feed their family stayed in Syria.
Zouair is fourteen. He came here from Deir Ezzor, an eastern Syrian city, since 9 months. With his dad, he collects metals from garage and sells it back to a recycling centre.
Although this job is not well perceived, it is answering a lack of engagement from the municipality and the inhabitants to waste sorting. Few separated dumpster have been installed in Lebanon, but they are not used at all. As a consequence, some Syrians collect the garbage, open them, and take in it what can be recycled and sold. In Bourj Hammoud, an area in the eastern suburb of Beirut, a sorting centre has been improvised in the road, taking sometimes mostly half of it. Hani, 22 years old, is receiving all the garbage from the area. With his little hands, without gloves, he selects what can be reused. The rest is taken by the Sukleen’s trucks (the Company in charge of the collect of garbages), which come regularly. “Even if this work is dirty, degrading, and sometimes dangerous, at least I have my money at the end of the day. Before this, I was working in construction buildings. It’s more money, but the boss abuse and play with you, paying you whenever he wants”, says Hani, garbage selector since two months.
