Making it Home : A Child's Eye View of Life as a Refugee
This is a poignant and inspiring collection of stories by refugee children from all over the world. Told through their eyes, it promises to be a compelling insight into the plight of the world's refugees. The youngest contributor, six-year-old Wachen Bohlen left war-torn Liberia, but wants to return because 'it is my country. It is my home.' The oldest is fifteen-year-old Merci Ngubi from the Congo who spent two weeks trekking in the jungle with his family after fleeing from their home. Publication will coincide with International Refugee Week.
