Salma Hayek happily embraces a child while visiting the Saadnayz UNICEF Protection Centre on Saturday (April 25) in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon.
The 48-year-old actress, who helped launch Chime for the Children of Syria, met with Syrian refugees to draw attention to the urgent humanitarian needs of children and families whose lives have been upended by the brutal conflict in Syria over the last four years.
“Millions of children have been robbed of their childhood, their country and have lost their loved ones. As a result of the conflict in Syria, they are missing out on their education and are having to work to provide for their families,” Salma said in a statement. “By donating to the CHIME for the Children of Syria fundraising appeal, you are supporting UNICEF’s efforts to provide children with access to learning opportunities and support services to help them cope with the violence they have experienced. The conflict should not mean that an entire generation is lost.”
“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. I’m also moved by the generosity so many Lebanese people have shown toward those seeking refuge in their country,” Salma continued, whose paternal grandparents were Lebanese. “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 tohelp.”
