Priyanka Chopra burst into tears as she met Ukrainian refugees

Actor Priyanka Chopra, who is also a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, has recently shared a video when she met the Ukrainian refugees who were forced to flee Ukraine amid the Russian invasion.

She spent time with women and children and took to social media to spread information about the world’s greatest human displacement.

Priyanka spent time with young Ukrainian youngsters, engaging in pleasant activities such as sketching and painting. She was given several handcrafted dolls that the children said were named after her. She also spoke with ladies about their experiences, and she also also seen busting into tears while listening to one woman speak about a family member who couldn’t join them in Poland.

Sharing a video on Instagram, she wrote, “The invisible wounds of war are the ones we don’t usually see on the news. Yet, they were so evident to me today as started day 1 of my @unicef mission in Warsaw. 2/3 of Children from Ukraine have been displaced (internally and externally). This HUGE number is the devastating reality of a war where 90% of the people crossing the border are women and children. 70% of those who have fled, crossed the border into Poland, and large government supported Reception Centres have been set up to make the transition as easy as possible.”

She further added, “@unicef responded to this emergency by setting up Blue Dot Centres in 11 locations across Poland and 37 across the region together with @refugees. The Blue Dot Centers play a very necessary role, and in many ways are a rare safe haven for women and especially the children. They offer so much…. Access to important, relevant information, mental health support, providing mother and baby areas to allow them much needed privacy, and play areas, which are so critical for kids who come from conflict situations to be able to feel a sense of normalcy. It is predominantly staffed by Ukrainians including many who have also fled the war themselves.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka is all set for her new project Citadel, the first season of her OTT series. The Russo Brothers produce it. In addition, she has signed on to star with Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt in Farhan Akhtar’s Jee Le Zaraa as well as upcoming Hollywood movies It’s All Coming Back To Me and Ending Things.
