Nadima Storybook for Children: An Adventure for Safety and Hope (available only in Chinese)
With courage, we can always find hope.
Nadima has never dreamed that she would become a brave walker treading on high and rugged mountains. She plucked up her courage to surmount different challenges together with the little friend she met in the journey.
After surpassing all the difficult situations, can Nadima find her desired new home at last?
UNHCR in Hong Kong has launched the Nadima illustration storybook, which features Nadima’s escape journey in a child-friendly way, full of colourful and lovely drawings. It is an educational storybook that depicts the adventurous life of a refugee child from South Sudan, for children to develop empathy and reflect on the fortunate lives we have. Young readers can also broaden their international horizon. The story is suitable for junior primary school students or younger readers guided by parents. At the end of the book, there are several creative questions designed to help parents and children think more deeply beyond the story.
In today’s world, nearly half of the refugees around the world are children. Due to conflict or persecution, these innocent refugees were forced to flee their homes and started their long journeys for safety. There were lots of risks everywhere, but some of them were unfortunately separated from their parents and family. These unaccompanied refugee children can only face all the dangers alone like Nadima. They trekked across forests, rough seas and borders to survive. They suffer from sickness, exhaustion and hunger even when they can survive all dangers in the risky voyages.
