This is a special shout out to one of Indias biggest movie stars. @katrinakaif this video is just for you, all the way from Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan.This is Wafaa, one of your biggest fans and her message roughly translated is “I love Katrina Kaif a lot and I am one of her fans. I have watched all her movies and never missed one, even if a movie is played more than once I watch it. I love you Katrina and love your beauty.” I was especially told to give messages of love to these Massive Indian film superstars, who are favourites at Za’atari… SHAHRUKH KHAN, SALMAN KHAN, AKSHAY KUMAR, KAREENA KAPOOR and ANUSHKA SHARMA… a big shoutout to you all and Hindi movies from these amazing kids who are huge fans…our movies give them some much joy .. This was something I honestly did not expect…but it made my day. Who would think that what we do as entertainers would give people a sense of hope, relief and escape in such dire circumstances.This post is for all my colleagues in the Entertainment Business around the world… know what we do sometimes has such an deep impact on people’s lives and goes beyond just the mere entertainment people look at us for. #ProudofmyJob #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #ChildrenOfSyria #PCInJordan You can lend your support by logging on to www.unicef.org #girllove
The Quantico star posted a heartfelt video for Katrina and captioned it as, “This is a special shout out to one of Indias biggest movie stars. Katrina Kaif this video is just for you, all the way from Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan.”
The Baywatch actress also shared Wafaa’s (a girl in refugee camp at Jordan) message, who is one of Katrina’s biggest fans, which read, “I love Katrina Kaif a lot and I am one of her fans. I have watched all her movies and never missed one, even if a movie is played more than once I watch it. I love you Katrina and love your beauty.”
Excuse the bad cartwheel and lame attempt at a Rugby toss… This is a Makani ‘Drop In’ Center for underage boys who work,they are referred to as “Child Laborers.” Most of the boys are between 10 and 18 years old, work 6-12 hours per day, and literally drop in after work to play and receive an informal education, as well as learn life skills. Many of the boys you see in these pictures have only just started to learn how to read and write, since the priority for most of these boys is to provide sustenance for their families. The teachers here work 3 shifts each day to accommodate the influx of kids to give them a chance to work and study. We must do our bit. This is what WAR looks like. Consequence of Conflict.

Following are the captures from her trip to Jordan!
Most of these girls (8-10yrs) have lived in this refugee camp for more than half their lives..so they probably don’t even remember what normalcy in life is outside of a refugee status..their smiles come from such a pure place, of making the most of whatever they have.. of survivors.. In Za’atari, there are currently 27,000 children enrolled in the 14 school complexes. Although there are make shift seats for every child in the camp, the enrollment is about 78% as children drop out due to child marriages, child labor and family attitudes towards education. All schools in the camp work two shifts, with girls classes in the morning and boys in the afternoon. We visited this School in the morning, so we met the girls. Pls swipe left. #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #TheyAreUs @unicef
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
This is Eman. She is an artist and these are her sketches. This particular one caught my attention because it depicts her version of the war. A man in a jail trying to feed a little bird. It broke my heart to see so much compassion despite of being so ravaged by war. Eman wants to show the world through her art what her imagination holds. God Bless. 🙏🏼 #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
