Actress Priyanka Chopra, who recently received 'resonating applause' for her Sikkimese production Pahuna at the Toronto International Film Festival, is now in Jordan - a host country to millions of refugees - to help the children who are now part of the Syria crisis. The 35-year-old actress, recently Instagrammed a picture, in which she can be seen reading a UNICEF (an organization which saves children's lives, defends their rights and helps them fulfill their potential) file. Priyanka wrote in the post that she would update as much as she could and in as much detail about her visit. She captioned the picture: "Let's take this trip together... let's open our eyes and our hearts to the children uprooted in the Syrian refugee crisis. This will be our mission for children. Let's show them that the world cares and help them find a way forward. Come along with me."
 


Syria's civil war has created a humanitarian crisis since anti-government demonstrations began in March 2011. Half the country's pre-war population have been killed or forced to flee their homes. Since then, families are struggling to survive inside Syria or make a new home in neighbouring countries like Jordan.

The Bajirao Mastani actress shared another picture on Instagram with a beautiful message for the children that read: "With everything that's happening in the world around us, it's important to look forward with hope and love, that's what I've brought with me to Jordan along with the resolve to help us understand these amazing survivors and how we can all do our part to help them. Keep u posted."
 


Early morning on Sunday, Priyanka posted a video, in which she shared all the details about her plans for the day in Amman, Jordan. Priyanka shared that she was off to a Syrian children's community centre for educational purposes. Watch Priyanka's video here:
 


Priyanka met and posted videos of children like Fadi, who is seven-year-old and knew how to write his name in English. She also posted a video featuring a girl named Eman, who caught Priyanka's attention with her sketches that depicted her version of the war.

At the end of the day, Priyanka posted a video and shared what she felt after the session. She wrote: "The anger and agony I felt seeing these beautiful hopeful children ravaged by war was so raw. The world has seen the pain war has left in Syria but the resilience and joy and hope in spite of it is so inspiring to me. These kids are my inspiration. They should be yours too."
 


She also urged the people to help the kids and donate a little for their betterment in this Instagram post.

This is Ammar(5), Ayat(8), Sulaiman (5 months) Wardshan(9) and they have an elder brother Saleh(10) who works at a grocery store to help supplement the family income, for only 2 Jordanian Dinar (that's less than $3 USD.) Their father is a day laborer. Sulaiman needs a 2nd surgery because he has a clot in his nose. The family moved from Syria to Jordan 5 years ago. When I asked their mother what would be her wish...considering the war hasn't ended, she said "if we can't go home all I want is for my kids to get an education so they can fend for themselves when they are older and help rebuild Syria. We are blessed, we have enough to survive...others have much less." They didn't even have furniture in their home. The largesse of heart and compassion she had through her tears moved me to pieces. PLS GO TO www.unicef.org and DONATE whatever you can... let's make this a collective #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
