Eight-year-old Bana al-Abed presented her book of memoirs, 'Dear World', at a book signing event in Manhattan, New York on Wednesday. The book is written from Bana's personal experiences of living in war-torn Aleppo, including the destruction of her family home during an airstrike. A fan who attended the presentation declared the need for Bana's book and said that although «50 per cent of the refugees are women and children,» it is «government leaders, or organisational leaders, or men, who speak on behalf of all of these voices.» «Bana helps us see the human inside a global problem,» she continued.
