Bolivia’s Child Miners

Bolivia-Child-Miners

Hundreds of children risk their lives every day in Bolivia’s booming mining industry. We descend deep underground into the world’s highest mines to find boys as young as 13 working long hours in deadly conditions. The thick dust and poisonous gases in the mines mean they face the virtual certainty of crippling lung disease and a life expectancy of little more than 35 years
