AA photoHollywood star Lindsay Lohan, who is known for her speculative life, visited Syrian refugees in the Sultanbeyli district of Istanbul on Sept. 26, state-run Anadolu Agency has reported.
In addition, Lohan also took to social media to express her feelings about the visit before leaving the country.
She shared a picture via her Instagram account, using the hashtag “#theworldisbiggerthan5,” a motto frequently used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in reference to the U.N. Security Council’s permanent members.
Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Abdurrahim Boynukalın said Lohan was impressed by the Syrian refugees during her visit.
@a_boynukalin #RefugeesWelcome #Turkey and #Compassion Meet the Hussein Family. The father, Mohammad, was injured severely in Aleppo and his wife left him and her three kids after they migrated to Turkey. The lovely girl is Heya (9) and her twin brother is Leys. The Sultanbeyli Municipality is covering their rent and kitchen expenses but the conditions of the house are very bad. The older brother was not in the house with us because although he is 17, he had to work in order to take better care of his family. #theworldisbiggerthan5
“She was impressed by the hospital serving the Syrian refugees and the Syrian medics who are working at this hospital in Sultanbeyli. She said that she wanted to work there on her next visit,” Boynukalın said.
