Zainab’s Story is a film about the real experiences of a child refugee as read by young people from around the world. The children were invited into the studio with no idea what they were going to do and the result is a powerful film that represents the universality of Zainab’s situation and a reminder of what is going on around the world for so many young people.
The film was supported by Cristiano Ronaldo, a Save the Children ambassador, who filmed a message of support for the launch on World Refugee Day 2017. The film was watched by more than three million people.

The films were watched by more than 500 000 people, performing brilliantly on social media and attracting new audiences to participate in the campaign.
