Child Refugees Document Horror Of Fleeing Their Homes Through Powerful Art

The youngsters are using their creativity to share their stories and speak for themselves.

Art is providing a powerful emotional outlet for a group of child refugees.

Youngsters who have settled in southeast England after fleeing unaccompanied from countries such as Syria, Sudan, Eritrea and Afghanistan have been tackling the trauma of displacement at British Red Cross-backed creative projects.

Some of those 14 to 19-years-old will now showcase their works at the free “All I Left Behind, All I Will Discover” exhibition at London’s OXO Tower from June 21 to 25.

This piece is one of more than 80 artworks by child refugees that will be on display at a new exhibition in London
