Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra who is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador shared a heartwarming post on Thursday, June 20, to mark World Refugee Day. The actress took to Instagram and shared a heartwarming video from her recent trip to Ethiopia, where she can be seen spending a gala time with the displaced children.
Putting forward the harsh reality that torments the innocent souls, the actress urged citizens to take initiatives to contribute to their betterment. In a long post, along with the video, she wrote, "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 their future.. these children are affected by displacement due to serious conflict and emergencies in their 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. Join me and @unicef by clicking the link in my bio to help keep refugee children safe. #AChildIsAChild #WorldRefugeeDay" she concluded her post saying.
