Priyanka Chopra is often seen actively taking part in creating awareness. On one hand, there is no stopping her in making it big around the globe, on another hand, she is actively seen spending time with children for some or the other cause.
Cultures are so lovely.so different yet so similar. Kalam is arabic for pen and it’s kalam in Urdu/Hindi too. We found that funny. Since the kids were learning English I thought Pencil may be appropriate… #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
She is a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and was seen spending a good time with kids in Amman, Jordan. As per reports and statistics, at present, there are 1.3 million Syrians in Jordan and the education system there is trying their level best to fit these children. But this task ain’t that easy. The Jordan government is in need of aids to educate these kids. Priyanka visited Jordan to meet these kids and raise awareness about the issue among others.
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. PLS GO TO www.unicef.org and DONATE whatever you can… let’s make this a collective #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
Naturally, she took to social media sharing her experience and talking about the condition there. She also insisted people to do their bit and donate whatever possible to make a difference.
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. PLS GO TO www.unicef.org and DONATE whatever you can… let’s make this a collective #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef
But it looks like someone wasn’t happy about her work and decided to point it out. A Twitter fellow named Ravindra Gautam who also happens to be a film critique mocked the actress for her initiative and said she should focus more on Indian kids than other. He tweeted ” I would request @priyankachopra that do visit rural areas of India where malnourished kids waiting for food. #MissionForChildren.”

However, this isn’t the first time that she is targeted and taunted for her opinions on social media. It goes without saying that PeeCee is one tough girl and gave it back to the guy just like a boss.
She replied 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?”

Well, that’s indeed the right thing to say and we hope Gautam is already regretting tweeting that out. Priyanka often doesn’t take anything seriously when made fun of, but we totally love the way she gives it back to the haters whenever needed!
At present, the gorgeous diva is concentrating on creating awareness, raising funds and supporting the children of war, in whatever way possible. Earlier she also visited Zimbabwe where she met kids who were sexually abused.
After they taught me their dance moves I showed them one of mine.. it’s called the “thumka” #DanceParty #EndViolence #UNICEF #thistimeforafrica #SafePark
It is obvious that she feels strongly for this initiative and is doing her best to make a difference, we believe it was the discrimination bit that she didn’t appreciate at all. And we totally support her for it.
All strength to PeeCee for doing such great work!
