On 23 May 2019 in Maytsebri Woreda, Ethiopia, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra visits a health centre in the Di Harhs refugee camp. From 20-24 May 2019, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra visited Ethiopia to meet refugee children fleeing conflict and humanitarian crises. During her visit, Chopra met children and young people living in Bambasi refugee camp, home to 17,000 refugees largely from South Sudan, and Hitsats refugee camp, where 25,000 refugees from Eritrea currently live. “Children uprooted from their homes by war and disaster endure the most disruption to their lives,” said Chopra. “They miss out on education and healthcare, and they may encounter violence, abuse or exploitation.” Ethiopia is home to 900,000 refugees – the second largest refugee population in Africa – most were forcibly displaced from their homes in South Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea, Sudan and Yemen. Many have crossed borders in search of peace or a better life, facing deadly dangers, detention and discrimination along the way.
