Little Amal continues her walk
on 29 of August in Trikala!
"Don't forget us" is the message relayed by 9-year-old Amal who began from Syria and is crossing Europe, in search for her mother around the lands that unravel ahead of her. She walks from country to country, meets other children and people, always with the hope that somewhere a home will be there for her to stay, grow up, get educated and create her own world.
Little makes a stop in Trikala under an ancient tree.
A hundred and fifty enormous flowers approach her
and accompany her in the city.
Amal reaches Trikala tired and encounters ahead a garden of handmade flowers held by children that will accompany her to the center of the city. In her route, passing outside the Tsitsanis Museum, she makes a stop at an ancient tree and rests under its shadow. The tree narrates to her its story and remembers the people that have visited it throughout the years that have passed - some of them with tenderness and others with a certain difficulty.
When she reaches the central square, residents of the city and children offer her a live and rare flower and give her all their wishes for the continuation of her Walk.
Warm thanks to the Municipality of Trikala for the support and contribution to all the events of the Walk.
