Amber Heard Opens Up About Her Medical Missions to Jordan & Lebanon

Amber Heard is speaking out about her experiences.

The 32-year-old actress and activist attended the 2019 SAMS Midwest Chapter Annual Gala as keynote speaker on Saturday night (March 16) in Chicago, Ill.

Chicago Med star Torrey DeVitto was also in attendance at the event.

Syrian American Medical Society, or SAMS, is a global medical relief organization that is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria, in neighboring countries, and beyond to save lives and alleviate suffering.

In her speech, Amber spoke about the impact that SAMS medical missions have had on her, and shared the stories of some of the inspiring individuals she spoke to and the dedication and selflessness of SAMS volunteers she met during the missions.

“Empathy is a remarkably selfless emotion—it requires a person to leave the comfort of their own perceived place in the world and inhabit the experience of someone else. It is an inherently frightening and disorienting state of being, one that can be extremely rewarding but also unbelievably draining,” she said.

Amber accompanied SAMS on two medical missions to Jordan and Lebanon.

“I’ve certainly never given anyone an injection nor do I know what to do with a stethoscope. But what I can do is use my platform and my skill as a storyteller to inspire others to take small incremental actions in support of a common cause,” she said.

The event was sponsored by Merrill Lynch and The Ajroudi Foundation.
