Orlando Bloom Visits Syrian Refugees in Jordan with UNICEF

Orlando Bloom Visits Syrian Refugees in Jordan with UNICEF

Orlando Bloom wears a white vest while walking around with some UNICEF staff members at the Za’atari refugee camp near the Syrian border on Thursday (April 10).

The 37-year-old actor spent a few days last week meeting with children from Syria and their families whose lives have been devastated by the conflict which is now in its fourth year.

“These children have witnessed more extreme violence than any child should,” Orlando said. “What is most terrifying is that they become a lost generation. Without urgently needed education, protection and psychological support, their pain and bitterness will turn into aggression years from now.”

During the trip, Orly also spent time visiting families in their homes and sitting in on a music class.

Over the weekend, Orlando was in attendance at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, where he picked up the award for best fight.

@Adriana: They bring publicity to the suffering of small children, and reminding us, that there are people out there too, to whom we must relate to. Also unicef has many projects to support the education and health care of children there. Go to their website to find out how you can also participate yourself to help them. That is what the celebrities do. They bring the world to unite for a good cause. If no one would give you information concerning these suffering children, you would not know about it and you would not be able to help. Now you can.

UNICEF does tremendous good in countries around the world.
Good for Orlando for lending his support.

# 5

Orlando has a really good heart. It is great that Orlando is working with UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador. UNICEF does tremendous good in countries around the world. Orlando is compassionate, and kind and gives a lot of his time to help others plus he is a gorgeous man.

# 6

So Orlando is doing good working with Unicef and Miranda is doing what… promoting expensive, athletic clothing line and skin care? Hopefully Flynn takes after his dad.

Today on Keeping Up With The Kerrdashians: Orlando Kerrdashian kindly shows us why we should NOT donate to UNICEF and send those dollars to a more worthy charity. UNICEF payed for his travel expenses, set him up in cush digs AND payed him exorbitantly to pretend that he actually cares one whit about smelly, dirty brats in a country he can’t even spell. If you want to make a difference in this world and donate to worthy charities, try American Veterinary Medical Foundation, Animal Allies Humane Society, or Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center. Make a difference in the life of someone who will truly appreciate it, instead of giving to a charity that blow all of your funds on a celebrity PR tour to help vile creatures who are destroying the planet. Better yet, spay and neuter yourself and your spawn before it is too late.

*that blows (or that will blow) (it’s late and I need a nap).

Uhmmmm, celebs aren’t paid to work their work with UNICEF.
Nor are they pampered. There aren’t many 5 star hotels in the areas that UNICEF visits.
I know that you constantly post idiotic garbage, but this last post takes the cake.
And I love that you think animal charities are more important than children’s charities. We all know how you feel about children. It’s just too bad that your parents didn’t feel the same way.

I think that her parents DID feel that way.
Maybe she was unplanned and unwanted. Maybe that’s why she is so hateful and bitter. She never knew love as a child.

@Adriana
As EB said, celebrities are a powerful PR campaign tool for charities to utilize in order to increase public awareness about various issues, causes and situations around the world.

The celebrities increase the public profile of the charity and its mission while at the same time getting some favorable press for themselves. Hopefully, they genuinely care about the cause itself. It’s a win-win situation.

@Elena
Please find a healthy, constructive and fulfilling hobby. No celebrity, actor, singer, etc. is worth the time and effort you seem to be putting in to express all this negative energy and counterproductive thoughts. I love animals, too, but I also care about people. Please get some rest and find some inner peace. I say that sincerely and NOT to be sarcastic or mean. If you really want to ‘hurt’ a celebrity, just do the unthinkable: IGNORE HIM OR HER COMPLETELY. Don’t post on message boards. Don’t watch their interviews. Pretend they don’t exist. For many people, famous or not, negative attention is better than no attention. For actors, singers, celebrities, and public figures in general, to be ignored is worse than death.

I hope Mr. Bloom is sincere in his efforts to help Unicef. That’s all I have to say. What we do behind closed doors and when the cameras and tape recorders are not running reveals much more about us than when we are being photographed and recorded with our awareness.

Hats off to you, Carmen.
That was actually a cohesive, well written, common sense post.
I’m proud of you.
Really. No sarcasm, here.

@Elena: I bet your full of crap. I bet you dont donate anything to animal charities whether its your time or money. Your just always here thinking your important & spruiking what everyone else should do. Your so pathetic!

Today on keeping up with the Kerrdashians: I was wrong on every level. Unicef is a wonderful organisation and we should all do our best to help. I love your work Mr Kerrdashian. Lets thank Orlando for his wonderful work he is bringing to this worthy cause!
