Indian top movie star Priyanka Chopra visits Ethiopia

During the visit, Chopra Jonas met children and young people living in the Bambasi refugee camp, home to 17,000 refugees largely from Sudan, and Hitsats and Adi-Harush camps, where 55,000 refugees from Eritrea currently live. ‘Children uprooted from their homes by war and disaster endure the most disruption to their lives,’ said Chopra Jonas. ‘They miss out on education, healthcare and stability, which makes them extremely vulnerable to violence, abuse or exploitation.’
Ethiopia is home to 900,000 refugees – the second largest refugee population in Africa.
