Priyanka Chopra Visits Kenya Amid Hunger Crisis, Appeals To Donate


Johannesburg: Actor-producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is currently in Kenya, has appealed to people across the world to support UNICEF’s efforts against the country’s hunger crisis.

In a video shared on her official Instagram account on Monday night, the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador said children in the African country are “starving to death” and funds are needed to fight the catastrophe.

“Children are starving to death and millions are on the brink of starvation. This is the face of the climate crisis, and here in Kenya it’s happening right now. But, there is hope and there are solutions.

“Over the next few days I’ll be showing @unicef’s immense efforts happening on the ground to save lives. BUT in order to reverse this unprecedented crisis, money is desperately needed to ensure the good work continues,” Priyanka wrote in the caption.

As a new mother, the 40-year-old actor said the urgent situation “hits” her differently. She and singer-husband Nick Jonas (30) welcomed daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas in January, via a surrogate.

“I am very uneasy today. My mind is in a million places at one time, I am really feeling on the edge. It’s been this way since I boarded my flight from LA.

“I am in Kenya with UNICEF to see first hand the severe crisis that is unfolding. And as a new mother, it really hits differently. I know it’s going to be tough but I want to take you on this journey,” she further said in the video.
