“The displaced”, 360 ° video from New York Time on children displaced by war

A 360 ° video to understand the war's effects:

“What I do know is if I get eaten by a crocodile it might be a slow death but it’s better than being killed by the fighters.”

The war drove 30 million children from their homes. These are the stories of three of them in a New York Times virtual reality video. 360 ° video is a video that gives you a sense of depth in all directions so that you feel like you are actually there. You can use a cardboard or watch it on youtube. Maybe this will help put our challenges in perspective …
