and Kamal's


Abdul, 8, has to be the adult and protect his little brother

When brothers Abdul and Kamal fled the fighting in Myanmar, they lost both parents in the process. Their father was killed as they fled. Their mother couldn’t afford to cross the border with them.

They walked for five long days to reach a hot, dirty refugee camp. As Abdul explains in this film, now they only have each other.

“Before the war, nothing worried me.”

When 14-year-old Sara fled Syria with her family, she only took two things with her – a watch, and her photo album. Both remind her of her daddy, who she adored. As violence escalated in Damascus, he was kidnapped and then brutally killed.

Sara has seen things no one ever should. She’d give anything to have her daddy back. We can’t do that for her – but we can start to rescue her childhood.
