A symbol of hope and unity
She began her journey in 2021 walking from the Syria-Türkiye border to the United Kingdom. Since then, she has travelled to 15 countries, been welcomed by two million people on the street and connected with tens of millions online. Little Amal comes to Australia for the first time to join us at the 2024 Adelaide Festival.
Amal’s walks are travelling festivals of wonder, hope and art that draw attention to the millions of children fleeing war, violence and persecution around the world. She invites us to see the world through the eyes of a child forced to flee her home and asks us all to hear her message: “Don’t forget about us.” Since she started walking, she has raised $1 million for The Amal Fund with Choose Love, providing urgently-needed support for refugee and displaced children in many countries.
The full schedule, including the visit to Rundle Mall, will be confirmed soon.
