In the last five years, Priyanka Chopra’s career graph has just gone higher and higher. Not just that she has established herself as a singer. She released her own music album and sung for some of her movies. She has gone international in a remarkable manner. However, the former Miss World not just donned many hats in her career but along with her commercial projects, she is also very active in her social endeavors. Most recently the ‘Baywatch’ star visited Jordan as a Good Will Ambassador for UNICEF.
After receiving a resonating applause for her Sikkimese production ‘Pahuna’, she was off to Jordan which is a host country for millions of refugees who are now part of the Syrian conflict. Priyanka recently posted a series of pictures on Instagram. PeeCee captioned the image: “Let’s take this trip together…Let’s open our eyes and hearts to the children uprooted in the Syrian refugee crisis. This will be our mission for children. Let’s show them the world cares and help them find a way forward. Come along with me”.
Take a look at the photos:
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
At Za'atari, I'm proud to have had the opportunity to visit the home of Seba and her whole family – Mohammed, 19; Seba, 17; Haya 14; Hiba, 12; Omar, 6; Hala, 4. In spite of their circumstances, their makeshift home, and very little to call their own, we were the recipients of the full Syrian hospitality and love. Her mother, Isdihaar, a dignified and happy spirit was so open about her earlier life, and all that they do now to survive. They had a full life in Syria, with a home and everything they could ask for, and now…sitting in their sparse living room, all I got was a resolve to hold on until they could return to their home and rebuild their life. Without her husband there, she's taking care of her 6 children by working at an innovation lab, finding innovative solutions for everyday problems…like the neo-natal air conditioner created by just using a fan, ice cubes and box with holes. As I was leaving, Seba removed her bracelet and gave it to me and said it was so I'd never forget her. I will never forget her and the amazing people I've met, and it is because of them that my resolve to keep working by bringing attention to their situation has just grown stronger. Hoping that somehow we, the citizens of the world, will find it in our hearts to contribute to ease the largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II.

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. More than 80% 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 180,000 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
Syrian civil war has created a humanitarian crisis and millions of people are either dead or have been forced to flee the country taking a heavy toll on lives especially of children. The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ star is doing her bit to help them and raise awareness about the crisis. On the work front, ‘Piggy Chops’ is busy in her Hollywood projects ‘A Kid Like Jake’ and ‘Isn’t it Romantic’. She was in Mumbai last month to spend some quality time with her friends and family.
