Lindsay Lohan visits refugee camp in Turkey’s southeast
GAZİANTEPHollywood star Lindsay Lohan has visited a refugee camp in the Nizip district of the southeastern province of Gaziantep. Lohan met with Syrian refugees during her visit and shared a photo of herself and an aid personnel working in the camp from her Instagram account.
“I met a wonderful aid worker (Azize) at The Refugee Camp in Antep,” Lohan wrote on Oct. 8.
“She saw that my eyes lit up when I told her that her headscarf is beautiful. She waved to me and said, come with me, I followed her and she gifted it to me. I was so moved and touched by this that I wanted to wear it in appreciation for all of the generosity and love I received from everyone at the camp,” she also said.
Lohan thanked Gaziantep and the city’s Mayor Fatma Şahin, who welcomed the Hollywood star, as she also used the hashtag “#theworldisbiggerthan5,” a motto frequently used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in reference to the U.N. Security Council’s permanent members.
During her visit, Lohan sang songs with the refugee children and chatted with Syrian women.
Lohan previously visited Syrian refugees in the Sultanbeyli district of Istanbul and said that more should be done in the issue of refugees.
“We can do more for each other, we should do more for each other. And we can start by giving support to Turkey which did its part in this huge human tragedy called Syria by welcoming 3 million refugees. We should do more, starting today,” she said.
