#ESSN The Emergency Social Safety Net | A step into normality for Syrian refugee children

#ESSN, the Emergency Social Safety net, is a pre-paid cash card that allows refugees to pay for all the essentials that create a family home. For this, essential project, a group of European children’s book illustrators, come together to show how Syrian refugee children, find new hope and stability through everyday objects…

The project – supported by the European Union (EU) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – helps to understand and visualize the world from a child’s point of view…From a teddy bear or a story book to a toothbrush or a pair of shoes, these objects provide something they can call their own – an escapism from reality. These items comfort the children with a familiar taste of home and give them hope and the excitement that every child deserves.
