Mozamel, 63 and Shainidul, 61

“We have been working here for two years now. We both have sons but we do not live with them. They can barely support their families so we have decided to come work on the shipbreaking yards to make some money to be able to eat.”

“We are getting old but the situation has forced us to work. The labour here is very physical and the conditions are unsafe. At our age, it is very difficult to survive.”
