Wars, conflicts, natural disasters, and oppressive regimes are causing unnamable wounds in the lives of many civilians. They are exiled from their homes and have to take shelter in safer countries. The civilians who are forced to migrate face uncountable hardships during their long journeys. And the ones managing to reach safer regions face new challenges due to various issues in the receiving countries.
The Kimse Yok Mu association wants to bring these issues to the forefront of the global agenda and is looking forward to achieving this through their first annual international cartoon competition.
