Illustrating the reality of refugee families

How four artists are raising awareness and money for refugee families and their children

Refugee

You wouldn’t want your own children out in the cold without a roof over their heads, but that’s the reality that thousands of refugee parents are facing this Christmas.

Telling the heartfelt stories of vulnerable refugee children who have been forced to flee their homes and undertake dangerous journeys, an exhibition launches tomorrow in support of Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis appeal.

Illustrations will be displayed in The North Atrium of Westfield Stratford in London, beside the ice rink, to raise money and awareness for the appeal between Tuesday 22 December and Sunday 3 January.

Artists George Butler, David Foldvari, Toby Morison and Linda Kitson all travelled to Europe to witness the conditions young children and their families are living in, and the work Save the Children is doing to support them.
