As many of you enjoy the festive season and celebrate the story of the birth of the world’s most famous refugee child, please take a moment to consider the plight of millions of displaced children around the world.
Iranian animator and former refugee Majid Adin has directed a short film for the charity Help Refugees, titled The Journey. In 2015, he traveled across Europe to seek asylum in the UK, and studied art before beginning a career in animation.
Adin collaborated with Blinkink on The Journey, an emotional story following a young Syrian boy whose home has been devastated by war. Separated from his family during a bomb attack, he embarks on a long, dangerous journey to be reunited with his parents. The film aims to raise awareness of the ongoing refugee crisis and raise funds for struggling families facing winter conditions across Europe and the Middle East this Christmas. According to Help Refugees, one in every 200 children across the globe is now displaced.
