Wounds Inside

Wounds Inside

The brick field workers of Bangladesh start work early in the morning, when some of the workers make bricks while others carry them. A worker who makes between 1,000 and 1,500 bricks a day gets only 500 Tk (4.67 USD), which is barely enough to feed their families. The black smoke and dust in the brick fields have a severe impact on the workers’ health. They enter the body  through the nose, mouth and ears affecting various parts of the body, especially the lungs. The workers get no social security benefits from the authorities. Most importantly, their basic human rights, such as the right to healthcare and education, are violated. According to Bangladesh Human Rights Commission (BHRC) and Department of Labor, brick field workers do not live long due to various health problems, including lung diseases.
