The Walk is a 4-month long 8,000 km journey made by Little Amal across Europe in search of her mother. Little Amal is a 3.5m tall puppet of a 9-year-old Syrian refugee girl. She began near the Turkey/Syria on 27 July 2021. So far, she has travelled through Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and France.

At this time of crises, her urgent message to the world is “Don’t forget about us”.

We will welcome her. Will you?
