Salma Hayek Visits Lebanon with UNICEF for Syrian Refugees

 

Salma Hayek made a surprise trip to Lebanon over the weekend to help draw attention to Syrian refugees who have been driven out of their homeland by conflict.

The actress used her time in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley to tend to local kids and to listen to the struggles of the millions of people impacted by the ongoing conflict.

“I’m deeply inspired by the courage of the Syrian refugee children and their families that I met in Lebanon who, against the odds, and despite the harm they have suffered or witnessed, are still determined to endure life and hope for a better future,” Hayek said in a press release on Monday. “I’m also moved by the generosity so many Lebanese people have shown toward those seeking refuge in their country. I plead to everyone who is grateful for the peace and stability in their lives to show compassion for those who have lost it all and to help.”
