At just 11 years old, Hassan Pisecká caught the attention of the international press after traveling more than 1200 kilometers alone, from the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia to the border with Slovakia. The boy, rescued by volunteers and later accompanied by the Slovak Republic Police, arrived in the country with only a plastic bag, a passport and a phone number written on the back of his hand. His mother, he explained, had stayed behind to take care of his grandmother and had family members in Bratislava waiting for her.
