“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.
Written by foreign correspondent Carolina Montenegro and with visual narrative by Renato Moriconi, “Amal” is a tribute to refugee children.
