Story description: 

600,000 homes were destroyed by the earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. The demand for bricks to rebuild new houses increased, and child labour is involved in rebuilding the country.

In Nepal 28,000 children are engaged in child labour.

Children who work at brick factories breathe in dangerous red dust that circulates in the air.

One consequence is chronic bronchitis.

Children die yearly in relation to accidents in the workplace.

Besides long hours and heavy work, the brick factories have consistently poor sanitation facilities that also lead to other diseases.
