This giant puppet is walking in the shoes of a young refugee crossing Europe

Last Friday, Little Amal – a 3.5-metre-tall puppet of a young refugee girl – met with children at an event at Place du Trocadero near the Eiffel tower in Paris, France.

‘The Walk’ is an art initiative that began in July of this year in the hopes of bringing global attention to the plight of millions of young refugees, representing all displaced children who have often been separated from their families.

The 8,000 kilometres project is travelling across Europe via Turkey, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, and France, before ending in the UK in early November.

Throughout her journey, Amal has been welcomed by hundreds of cultural events in cities and towns
