Child slaves are used as jockeys in a Gulf Arab country.
The practice was outlawed years ago but is widely used.
The child slaves are purchased for 500 usd each, 317 euros , 252 pounds, each.

Camels are better treated than children since they are more valuable.

As the video states; this was outlawed in 1993. Regrettably, these crimes against children go on in the UAE and, unfortunately many more countries.

Children are seen as a form of currency by some poor countries and sold for abuse. However, one less mouth to feed...

Human Rights? When the richest are involved, the poor have little protection. The whole thing is covered up.

Thank you so much for highlighting this.
Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.
