Orlando Bloom Takes UNICEF Trip to Ukraine

Orlando visited classrooms that were affected by bombings, all while children and teachers were in the school.

“I met children like 11-year-old Liana who hid in the basement of their school for almost two weeks, in freezing conditions, without lighting or heat, while shelling devastated the classrooms above. Now, after surviving some of the most terrifying experiences life could possibly throw at them, all they want is to get back to the safety and routine of school and plan for their futures,” he explained.

Orlando added, “Education is providing children in eastern Ukraine with the building blocks to rebuild their lives in a safe and supportive environment. Every child in humanitarian emergencies deserves a fair chance of a bright future.”

    It’s pretty rich that the main traffickers in the Ukraine “care” about the children.
