UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Orlando Bloom highlights impact of conflict on children of Syria in Jordan

Actor Orlando Bloom paid a visit to Jordan with UNICEF to meet children from Syria whose lives have been devastated by the conflict – now in its fourth year. The Goodwill Ambassador first travelled to Irbid to talk to families about their lives since fleeing Syria. This was followed by a visit to Za’atari refugee camp, where Bloom met children in a UNICEF-supported school as well as a child protection space.

“This war obliterated (these families’) lives and uprooted them from their homes and now they are living in precarious situations with little or no hope for their futures,” said Bloom. “They don’t want to live like refugees. They just want their lives back and a future for their children.”

Almost 590,000 Syrians have fled to Jordan. Along with other UN agencies, we’re appealing for $4.2 billion to support refugees and host communities in 2014.
