Recently, Priyanka Chopra attended the royal wedding of close friend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in London. Now, Priyanka headed to Bangladesh for visiting refugee camps as a part of UNICEF, for which she is a goodwill ambassador.
Priyanka shared on social media about her meeting with the Rohingya refugees who fled from Myanmar. Priyanka posted photos and videos where she intermingled with some of the kids.
Priyanka’ post reads as, “Across the river is Myanmar(Burma.) It’s empty now, but a few months ago this area, known as “Sabrang,” was filled with hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar. Their trip here was filled with many hardships and tremendous danger. Many of them made their journey on foot, walking for days through the hills, then floating across the Naf River or the Bay of Bengal on makeshift boats…many of them injured, pregnant, elderly, etc. Their ordeal didn’t end here…after entering Bangladesh, they would often have to wait for days, sleeping in the open fields with no food or water, for aid workers to reach them. For a lot of the Rohingya children, this ordeal will leave them scarred, physically and emotionally, for the rest of their lives. With your help, maybe these children can have a chance at a future…because right now, their future is bleak. The world needs to care. We need to care.
