Aged between seven and 12, the youngsters discussed their experiences from the night of the blaze.
They also stressed the importance of having a home and urge people to “love and cherish” their families.
“My message for everyone at Christmas is to stay as a family, and don’t suffer about anything,” said 10-year-old Hayam Atmani, who lived on the 15th floor of the block.
“I know this has been a really hard time for everyone, but everyone went through and everyone helped as a family. So I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.”
Megan and Luana Gomes, 10 and 12, who were both put into comas after the fire, spent five months living in a hotel before moving into a temporary flat.
“My Christmas message is that I think all families, children and parents should have a nice warm cosy home,” Megan said. “I just want everyone in the world to have a house at least.”
Channel 4 has been broadcasting an alternative Christmas message since 1993.
