»  Children Camel Jockeys
Children under 12, sold for debt can end up as camel jockeys. They are so small they are held to the saddle by Velcro pants. Although this is illegal in the UAE, it is still common practice. Children are brought in under the guise of 'relative.'

"The UAE has clamped down the illegal practiceof children as camel jockeys some of the kids were as young as 2 years. The UAE has raised the age of jockeys to 16. Fines are being heavily imposed. The problem now is the children are being sent home to families that can afford to feed them. So the question then becomes which is the better life ."
