Priyanka Chopra is on cloud nine as she is the reigning queen of Hollywood. From slaying on the red carpet to her recent appearance wherein she was there at Toronto International Film Festival where she was a special guest at a TIFF soiree, and then at the premiere of her Sikkimese film PAHUNA.
Soon after TIFF, Priyanka flew to Amman, Jordan.
As you are aware that Priyanka is the goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, she is part of UNICEF's initiative to educate Syrian children in Jordan who have sought refuge from the horrific civil war in their country.
She in in Jordan for helping out the kids. Some folks India side though complained about Priyanka's Amman journey.
She is trolled for all sorts of things, and very surprsingly she is being trolled again.
It happened that one of them posted on social media which read, “Ravindra Gautam posted 'I would request @priyankachopra that do visit rural areas of India where malnourished kids waiting for food. #MissionForChildren', Priyanka struck back sternly, saying, 'Ive worked w/ @UNICEFIndia for 12 yrs&visited many such places. What have u done @RavindraGautam_ ?Y is 1 childs prob less imp than another?'
Check out pictures from Priyanka's visit to Jordan:
With everything that's happening in the world around us, it's important to look forward with hope and love.... that's what I've brought with me to #Jordan along with the resolve to help us understand these amazing survivors and how we can all do our part to help them. Keep u posted #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria
This is Eman. She is an artist and these are her sketches. This particular one caught my attention because it depicts her version of the war. A man in a jail trying to feed a little bird. It broke my heart to see so much compassion despite of being so ravaged by war. Eman wants to show the world through her art what her imagination holds. God Bless. ???????? #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
A class full of future doctors, engineers, police officers, teachers. What breaks my heart is they can't even access proper schools as refugee kids... how will they access higher education?? These hopes and dreams.. where do they stand in the reality of their world? The government schools in Jordan have added evening classes and 200 schools to accommodate the growing number of Syrian children which is approximately 120000 children..But it's never enough. The world needs to help. We need to help.

I have never done this when I do field trips, but on this one I feel compelled to reflect on what I feel after every session because I felt a lot. The anger and agony I felt seeing these beautiful hopeful children ravaged by war was so raw. The world has seen the pain war has left in Syria but the resilience and joy and hope in spite of it is so inspiring to me. These kids are my inspiration. They should be yours too.

This is Ammar(5), Ayat(8), Sulaiman (5 months) Wardshan(9) and they have an elder brother Saleh(10) who works at a grocery store to help supplement the family income, for only 2 Jordanian Dinar (that's less than $3 USD.) Their father is a day laborer. Sulaiman needs a 2nd surgery because he has a clot in his nose. The family moved from Syria to Jordan 5 years ago. When I asked their mother what would be her wish...considering the war hasn't ended, she said "if we can't go home all I want is for my kids to get an education so they can fend for themselves when they are older and help rebuild Syria. We are blessed, we have enough to survive...others have much less." They didn't even have furniture in their home. The largesse of heart and compassion she had through her tears moved me to pieces.

Today was very emotional. As we go about our daily privileged lives, it's hard to imagine that everything can be taken from you in an moment. Today we spent the day in a host community meeting Syrian refugee families (like this one) so desperately seeking a safe place of normalcy for their families. More than 80% of the Syrian refugees in Jordan live outside refugee camps in cities, urban centers and farming villages (host communities.) Amman hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees, about 180,000 people. Refugee families in host communities have limited livelihood opportunities, and after 6 years, have depleted their savings and borrowed money from everywhere to feed and support their families. @unicef #ChildrenUprooted #TheyAreUs
