e a viagem mais importante da sua vida
“How would it be for a child to cross oceans and borders all alone? “
This is what this surprising book called “AMAL – and The Most Important Journey of Her Life” leads young readers to imagine. For some children, it’s an unthinkable possibility. For hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied refugee children, a harsh reality. The book, published in two formats – app-book and printed edition – has support from UNCHR, the UN Refugee Agency.
“Amal” is a tribute to refugee children.
Let’s contribute :)
“Amal” is a book that emerged with the firm purpose of contributing. And it does so in a very direct way. Besides informing readers and raising their awareness, the app, which is distributed for free to reach the largest possible number of people, fundraises for UNCHR humanitarian projects. How?
