Priyanka Chopra visits Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh


As a global Unicef Goodwill ambassador for Child Rights Priyanka Chopra visited the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Priyanka on Monday tweeted a photograph of herself from an aircraft looking out of the window.

“Follow my Instagram to share my experiences as I visit the Rohingya refugee camps on this Unicef field visit. Children uprooted, the world needs to care. We need to care,” she captioned the image.

Priyanka Chopra interacted with the children there and captioned a picture of her chatting with the children, "Through their smiles," she wrote on Instagram of the children she met, "I could see the vacancy in their eyes."

The actress, who lately attended Meghan Markle’s wedding has observed that as many as 60 per cent of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who fled to Bangladesh were children.

"They are still highly vulnerable, living in overcrowded camps with no idea when or where they will ever belong...even worse, when they will get their next meal," she wrote.

"As they finally start to settle and feel a sense of safety," Priyanka continued, "[the] monsoon season looms...threatening to destroy all that they've built so far."

"This is an entire generation of children that have no future in sight."

At the end of her post, Priyanka Chopra asked her followers to pitch in through the UNICEF’s website.

"The world needs to care. We need to care," she said. "These kids are our future."

Last year, Priyanka had met Syrian refugee children in Jordan.
