What if British Children Were Fleeing Their Homes to Find Refuge?

What if British Children Were Fleeing Their Homes to Find Refuge?

Imagine fleeing London in the search of a new home after the outbreak of a devastating war.

Two years after releasing the ‘Most Shocking Second a Day’ video, Save the Children UK has released a sequel depicting a British child fleeing with her family in a bid to find safety.

Aimed at highlighting the harsh realities Syrian, Afghan, Somalian, and other refugees face, the latest video follows 12-year-old Lily’s heartbreaking journey.

“It’s happening now, it’s happening here,” declares the video in its last moments as it hopes to shed light on the plight of refugees and in particular the 325,000 children who have crossed the Mediterranean and the Aegean seas for a safer future.

More than 340 children have drowned since September, an average of two children per day,  said the charity.
