‘Downton Abbey’ star Michelle Dockery raises awareness of Syrian refugee problem

The refugee situation in Syria has made some headlines, but Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery hopes her recent travels and stories can raise awareness and help for the children of Syria.

michelle-dockery-downton-abbeyWorking with Oxfam Dockery made the journey to Syria and begins by describing the conditions.

“This is a bleak place bang in the middle of the desert, boiling in the summer and below freezing in the winter. I met three families on the camp, mainly women who willingly told me their stories, a relief to share the terrible burdens and trauma they carry so closely,” she writes as her words are chronicles by Vogue.

Even though she sees the pain, her struggle to express the painful reality comes through in the visuals she describes.

“These are refugees living in rented accommodation outside the formal camps. Many people have fled literally with nothing; they have no money and are unable to work. The family I met had 10 people living in a flat suited for three. The conditions were shocking.”

Thousands of children have been killed, particularly by sniper which has raised new international questions, more on those details  HERE
