Recently, Priyanka Chopra went to Ethiopia as the UNICEF ambassador and is doing her bit to make sure the voices of the refugees heard. The actress took her Social Media page to share the videos and images of her visit.

Abda Abdulaziz, 26, arrived at the Bambasi camp in 2011 seeking refuge from the war in Sudan. Her 5 children were born in this camp and are being raised here, while her husband works as a laborer at a nearby farm – they see each other every two weeks for a few days. She said that if the violence in her country settles, she and her husband may consider going back, but she is not very hopeful that will happen. In the meantime, life in the camp allows her children to have access to an education. I met two of her daughters, Zulfa Ata Ey, 8, and Muzalefa, 10, at the primary school I had visited earlier in the day. Zulfa is at the top of her class and her mom is so proud. While they’re safe and her children are receiving an education, they are still living below the poverty line, and she’s desperate for the most basic supplies…like water, books, and clothes for her children. To donate and learn more about @Unicef’s efforts, visit UNICEF. Link in bio. (PS, the last video…Zulfa playing with my phone.)

Right after the visit, the actress conducted a question and answer session with her fans and one of the fans asked why Priyanka Chopra is not helping the Indian kids.

The fan asked, “I really adore your work Mam. But what about our motherland?” To this, the actor replied, “I believe a child is a child and we all are global citizens and we need to care about the future of children all over the world. I have worked with UNICEF in India for many years and will continue to do so.”

One user also asked her, “What role will you actually play in the trip with the kids?” The actor replied, “Ethiopia is at the moment going through a silent emergency and I am going to these refugee camps to meet these kids, listen to their stories and be a voice for them, use my voice to amplify theirs to get the world to care.”

Earlier, the actress stole the show at her debut appearance at Cannes 2019. Here are some pictures.
