New Save the Children ad shows child fleeing a UK civil war

Two years ago, Don't Panic London launched Most Shocking Second a Day to promote Save the Children's initiative supporting child refugees in Syria. The sequel to the original ad, which appeared online yesterday, features the same young girl. But this time, the video asks viewers to imagine her fleeing a refugee camp in Britain and going to an unknown place outside of her home country.

"A human tragedy is unfolding. 60 million people have been forced to flee their homes – creating the largest refugee crisis since World War II. Among them is a generation of children who have lost everything they know: their homes, their education – sometimes even their families.
It's a situation that has forced families into terrifying situations and impossible choices. And children have suffered most. 
This is our world. These are our children. We must ensure child refugees are not forgotten."
