Duztepe, Gaziantep, Turkey

Syrian refugee Dalal Eissa (13) with her mother Ayesha in their family's small apartment where they spend most days cutting cotton threads from pairs of jeans which are made in a nearby factory. The meagre work, which pays 25 TL (GBP 3.51) for every 100 pairs, helps to keep Dalal's family from bowing to pressure and marrying Dalal off to a wealthy Syrian businessman who knew the family when they lived in Aleppo and has now offered 20,000 Turkish Lira (approx. GBP 2,800) for the young teenager.
