Videos of people documenting a second each day over long periods of time have grown in popularity online. However, one group has taken the idea and flipped it on its head to create a video that is shocking, powerful and thought-provoking.
Save The Children UK, an organization which fights for the rights of children, has released this 'second a day' video to highlight how quickly conflict and circumstance can change everything, and to raise awareness for their Syrian Children Refugee Crisis project.
The YouTube description of the video reads:
A young girl's life gets turned upside-down in this tragic second a day video. Could this ever happen in the UK? This is what war does to children.
While the focus of the work is to parallel the U.K. with Syria, recent conflicts in both Ukraine and Venezuela only add power to the message and broaden the question posed: Could this happen to a child anywhere?
