Portering in the Harshest Areas of Iran

intpolicydigest.org - 01-17


Portering is described as carrying loads on the back or shoulder of a human being or with an animal in harsh areas. Back carriers are carrying goods between the two sides of the borderline, which are sometimes harsh and dangerous areas, simply to earn their daily living. Now in Iran, back carriers work more in the provinces of West Azerbaijan, Kurdistan, and Kermanshah. Most of them are carrying goods due to unemployment and with little pay.
