Surviving war and escaping fighters is one thing. But the life after that has many repercussions and can cause severe trauma in refugee children.
UNHCR can’t stop the wars and conflict destroying so many young lives, but we can be there to help pick up the pieces and help them to be children again. During a filming trip in Ethiopia we’ve collected some stories and footage from lone refugee children.
To make people understand how severe the trauma of war is, this concept brings the vulnerability of refugee children into perspective by indirectly showing how war – and losing their parents mentally scars children for life, through a child’s drawing.
