Silent night?

Editorial illustration for OneWorld magazine about Babah, who is a fugitive from Siera Leone.
Babah came to the Netherlands a couple of years ago and he tells about his first Christmas here. It was so silent compared to Christmas in Siera Leone, where everyone goes out on the streets dancing and making music. In the Netherlands everyone is staying inside, making it cozy with a tiny circle of family and friends. It was hard for him,feeling alone here in the first year.
