Refugee Comic

Last summer I was invited by the Stefan Batory Foundation to visit a home for refugees together with Joanna Sanecka.

The refugee home is located in Warsaw's Targówek district. It's inhabited by kids with their moms and grandmas. They have come here from Eastern Europe and Asia escaping war and poverty to seek a better life. Living conditions at the home are simple and far from comfortable but the kids are great.

Together with Krzysztof from the Foundation we spent a day with these wonderful kids playing football,  drawing and talking about their dreams.

Later on Joanna wrote an account of the event and I made these drawings. The result is a short docu-comic called Dzieci w podróży (Kids On The Road). You can read it here (in Polish).
