Pics: Priyanka Chopra meets Syrian refugees in Jordan


After attending the Toronto International film festival, Priyanka Chopra headed to Jordan for social work. As a UNICEF goodwill ambassador Priyanka left for Jordan to help refugees children from Syria those who are uprooted. Jordan happens to be a host country for millions of refugees.

The actor first shared a lovely message, along with a boomerang video as she left from Toronto and wrote, “Off and away… where do we go next??? Thank you @tiff_net and @cameronpbailey for the honor at the #shareherjourney Soirée, and giving such an amazing spotlight to my small Sikkimese movie with a big message, Pahuna. Toronto will always be one of my favorite places in the world. Thank you for the love. See you next time!  @madhuchopra @paakhi #neversaynever.”

She was then seen reading a UNICEF file and wrote, “Let’s take this trip together… let’s open our eyes and our hearts to the #ChildrenUprooted in the Syrian Refugee crisis. This will be our #MissionForChildren. Let’s show them that the world cares and help them find a way forward.. come along with me… I’ll update as much as I can and in as much detail as I can… @Unicef #PCInJordan#syrianrefugees #ChildrenOfSyria.”

Priyanka next posted, “With everything that’s happening in the world around us, it’s important to look forward with hope and love…. that’s what I’ve brought with me to #Jordan along with the resolve to help us understand these amazing survivors and how we can all do our part to help them. Keep u posted #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria.”

She also shared picture with refugee kids, who are desperately seeking normalcy in their lives.

"Today was very emotional. As we go about our daily privileged lives, it's hard to imagine that everything can be taken from you in an moment. Today we spent the day in a host community meeting Syrian refugee families (like this one) so desperately seeking a safe place of normalcy for their families," the actor posted on the photo-sharing website, along side a short video of her playing with kids from a refugee Syrian family.

Priyanka, 35, shared that more than 80 per cent of the Syrian refugees in Jordan live outside refugee camps in cities, urban centers and farming villages (host communities.)

"Amman hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees, about 1,80,000 people. Refugee families in host communities have limited livelihood opportunities, and after 6 years, have depleted their savings and borrowed money from everywhere to feed and support their families. @unicef #ChildrenUprooted #TheyAreUs," she further wrote.

Priyanka Chopra urged people to donate so that refugees can lead a normal life.
