Dear Habib

Dear Habib shares the true story of a young, unaccompanied migrant called Habib. Co-produced by Habib himself, along with an extraordinary team:

- Majid Adin (who illustrated animations for Elton John's Rocket Man and Nick Mulvey based on his experiences as a refugee)

- PositiveNegatives (whose ethnographic comics have featured on the Guardian, BBC and even been submitted to parliament)

The comic brings to life the incredible challenges, and opportunities, that young unaccompanied child migrants face.
