Le jeu de la vie: l'histoire de Sharif
Description: Sharif, âgé de 15 ans, a fui l'Afghanistan après que toute sa famille ait été tuée. Frappé et emprisonné lors de son périple d'un mois et demi à travers l'Iran et la Turquie, Sharif est finalement arrivé en Europe où il aspirait à un avenir meilleur. Neuf mois plus tard, il est dans les limbes vivant dans l'un des célèbres camps insulaires de Grèce. Sharif est l'un des millions de réfugiés qui fuient leur patrie en quête de sécurité et d'un avenir meilleur. Derrière les statistiques, la Fédération internationale des Sociétés de la Croix-Rouge et du Croissant-Rouge met en lumière les gens, tel que Sharif, afin de partager leurs histoires et expériences qui se révèlent être bien plus qu’une simple étiquette de « migrant » ou « refugié» que l’on a tendance à leur porter. Le jeu de la vie: l'histoire de Sharif est une collaboration entre la FICR et la scénariste et dessinatrice de bande dessinée, Karrie Fransman, basée à Londres: karriefransman.com/
