Refugee Stories

Unfairy Tales: Malak and the boat | UNICEF

This is the first animation in our 'Unfairy Tales' series that brings to life the true stories of the Syrian crisis' youngest survivors. 7-year-old Malak fled with her family from war-torn Syria and braved a dangerous journey across the Mediterranean. "I had a lot of friends, now there is no one left," Malak says.

Kids, refugees, questions: 'What is it like to have no home?'

British children and child refugees ask and answer questions about the refugee crisis. The Guardian and Observer charity appeal 2016 is supporting the work of three charities working with refugee children. This year more than 90,000 children have travelled alone, fleeing war and destitution, across Europe.
