Giant refugee puppet 'Amal' arrives in UK
Amal began her journey on July 27 in Gaziantep, Turkey, near the Syrian border, as part of a 4,970 mile odyssey through Europe to raise awareness of the plight of unaccompanied refugee minors.
She stopped in Rome to see Pope Francis and Geneva to see the United Nations building.
On the UK leg of her trip, she will visit Canterbury, London, Oxford, Coventry, Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester.
Sarah Loader, general manager of the artistic project 'The Walk', said: "She represents all the children who have had to leave their homes, some with their families and others without their families and looking for a new life outside their country. Looking for Security, looking for a future. "
"We wanted to come to Folkestone and Dover, this very significant place where so many people are starting their journey for a better life, a new life in Britain and we know that so many people have made this crossing and 'little Amal' everything represents these people. "
