Meet Amal, a ten year old refugee girl giant puppet, in Brooklyn

A little girl on a BIG journey, Little Amal is the giant puppet of a ten year old refugee girl, at the heart of Little Amal Walks NYC. Since July 2021 she has traveled over 9,000km across 12 countries representing all children fleeing war, violence and persecution, with the urgent message: “Don’t forget about us.” From September 14 to October 2, Amal will travel to New York City in partnership with St. Ann’s Warehouse. After arriving at JFK Airport, she will travel through all five boroughs, meeting artists, civic leaders, community groups and young New Yorkers of all backgrounds. All of Amal’s events are suitable for children and families.
