When You Feel Sad, Mad, or Scared…
It’s critical to support Rohingya refugees by encouraging dialogue around mental health. The purpose of our animations is to provide a safe and encouraging environment so the Rohingya people feel comfortable to share about their well-being.

“Every child deserves education wherever they come from. I really love how Books Unbound is trying to relate their culture and daily activities in the form of art. This supports children so they realize and learn their own culture.”
