Syria Relief: Hassan's Story

Client: Syria Relief

Agency: FLOW Creative

Role: Scriptwriting

Awards: Best Animation (MPA Awards)

The conflict in Syria has been raging for 10 years, robbing children and families of their homes, their schools, their loved ones. Many children have been injured, killed, traumatised or displaced.


Throughout the last decade, Syria Relief has been on the ground in and neighbouring countries addressing humanitarian needs, supporting healthcare, education and livelihoods for millions of people in need. As 2021 marks 10 years of conflict and crisis, Syria Relief are calling on people the world over to learn from the heartbreak of the past 10 years, to support the future of Syria and protect the young lives.

Flow Creative commissioned me to write the script for their animated film for the Syria Relief campaign. This is Hassan's story.

The short script is based on lots of research and listening to Syrian children talk about their own experiences. Children who, despite everything, shine on radiating hope for the future.
