Child Soldiers in Myanmar Need Your Help

This petition had 25,229 supporters

One of the biggest countries where child labor exists resides in Myanmar (also known as Burma), a sovereign state in Southeast Asia. Children as young as 11 years of age that are found alone in bus stations, train stations, markets, and other public places are involuntarily forced to join the army by recruiters from the army. If they refuse, they are threatened with a result of going to jail, being beaten up, and led to believe that they will earn money, food, clothes, and health care, which is only a fraud. We need to help them.
