The Challenge

 In order to commemorate Refugee Day, UNHCR asked us to help them share some of the stories of those who sought shelter in Costa Rica. Problem was, because of security concerns, we couldn’t share their identities.

The Solution

We sat down with several refugees and learned about their touching stories.

We knew that many people fear refugees might be dangerous immigrants probably running from crimes committed back home. Because of that, we wrote three short stories that narrated some of the most recurring experiences we had heard and decided to use harmless-looking cartoons to draw people in.

We closed with the faces of refugees whose image we could share, from the same country in which the story took place.
