Meet Little Amal – the not-so-little 12-foot-tall puppet of a 9-year-old Syrian girl who is walking 5,000 miles (8000 km) from Turkey to the UK. 🇹🇷 🇬🇧
The journey represents the stories of the millions of young refugees who are forced to leave their homes and often travel alone without their parents.
Designed as part of a project aimed at raising awareness of the difficulties faced by child refugees, the puppet will cross the border of eight countries.
She’ll be moving from Turkey to Greece, then Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and finally the UK where Little Amal’s journey will end in Manchester in November.
