It’s World Refugee Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world. To pay tribute to these refugees, Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram to share a heartfelt video accompanied by a touching post. The video highlights her recent visit to Ethiopia where she spent time with refugee children who are under the care of Unicef. As Unicef Ambassador, it is pertinent for PeeCee to make these regular visits to support the cause. “On World Refugee Day, I am sending all my love to refugee children everywhere,” she is heard saying in the video. She concludes by saying “I wish you a life full of learning and achieving all your dreams.”

The truth is quite simple... the future of this world lies in the hands of the children of today. But the harsh reality is that there is an entire generation of innocent children growing up right now without any prospects for thier future.. these children are affected by displacement due to serious conflict and emergencies in thier various regions. When families are forced to leave their homes due to violence, persecution, natural disasters, they are torn apart and it's the children that end up suffering the most. The numbers are staggering, yes... but we have to continue to stand for them, in whatever capacity we can as individuals. They are the future and we need to help.
