UNICEF Launches “Unfairy Tales” Of Refugee And Migrant Children

UNICEF launched a series of animated films to help frame positive perceptions towards the tens of millions of children and young people on the move globally, Called Unfairy Tales, the three animationstrue stories of the flight of children from conflict – explain the horror behind why they fled. 

They have been animated in the style of a fairy tale and will be supported by an interactive e-book experience also called Unfairy Tales. The Unfairy Tales are part of an initiative, actofhumanity, emphasising that children are children, no matter where they come from, and that every child has rights and deserves a fair chance.

One story – “Ivine and the Pillow” animates the true story of 14yr old Ivine and her pillow. After a perilous escape from Syria, Ivine settles at a refugee camp in Germany only to face new challenges. “Malak and the Boat”, tells the tale of a young girl’s voyage in a leaky boat. The third animation depicts the story of Mustafa, who after fleeing his home, wonders who is left to be his friend.
