He does not have a birth certificate and does not know the exact day of his birth. He asked his mother if he was born in summer or spring, and now thanks to three charities and running a center for working children, he is celebrating his birthday in a group and receiving gifts for the first time. .
There will be 13 people. From 9 to 15 and over from Afghanistan, they immigrated several years ago or were born in Iran, but their roots are in our neighboring country Afghanistan.
Little by little, the children gather together. Some came with their sisters and some with their younger brothers.
The birthday party starts with Afghan music and the boys stand and spin their bodies. Some try to display their art more and some are forced to sit down.
Three siblings from Sistan and Baluchestan can also be seen among the working children. Yasser, 14, Benjamin, 12, and Mehrdad, 11. Yasser and Mehrdad were born in July. Five years have passed since he immigrated from Sharabad (Zahedan suburb) to Tehran. He was a shepherd in his town and his grandfather was a shepherd. Yasser works in a mechanical workshop, and Benjamin and Mehrdad collect garbage with their father.
Benjamin is addicted and takes hashish and Yasser wants to leave his camp. He’s not guilty, he was born an addict. His one and a half year old sister is also addicted. They cried a lot and prayed that God would listen to them and that she be the last child of a girl. His sister was born at home and the boys witnessed the accident. The father was sleeping, and when he woke up and saw the child, he asked: Where did this come from? The children answered: This is our sister.
None of the siblings have a birth certificate and know their date of birth from their vaccination card. All of them received two doses of the vaccine and were not yet infected with the Corona virus.
This is the first time anyone has celebrated Yasser’s birthday. He opens his gift. This is a T-shirt. And when he saw the light in Benjamin’s eyes, the brother gave him his gift. Benjamin takes the gift and smiles his lips. He came back happy and said to me: Yasser always had a birthday party for my mom and dad, but he never had a birthday party for himself.
Yasser wants to be an actor. He is tall, his eyes are almond and his eyelashes are black. He was offered several times to become a model, but he did not like it and preferred mechanics. He is now in first grade and loves to read. When he was in Jahdan Shepherd, he went to school several times, but was severely beaten, and did not pay attention to his studies.
Murtaza is from Afghanistan and is 15 years old. I don’t know what day he was born. He brought his 5-year-old little brother with him. There are four brothers. He has another brother who died when he was three years old. He had a heart problem. Murtaza also sells street vendors. He sells handkerchiefs and socks, and after his birthday party he has to go get a piece of bread: “Thank God, my profit is not bad, I have from 100 to 150 thousand tomans.” He is now in the fourth grade and loves football. He wants to become a football player in the future.
