Sarandon is from early Friday at the east coast of Lesvos near the airport and remained at the spot where boats with migrants arrive on the island. She particularly assists the children, helps them to change their soaked clothes, socks and shoes.
Popular Hollywood actress and activist Susan Sarandon arrived on Lesvos on Thursday to witness first-hand the arrival of refugees on the island,
A five-year-old Iranian Semihan and her two younger siblings captured Sarandon’s heart when the little girl broke into tears while she hold her in her arms
“Have courage, you’ll make it” she told the young girl’s parents when they got on board UN’s bus that would take them to the Identification Center at Moria.
“The international community must see what is happening in this corner of the world. It must realize the size of the problem and understand it” Susan Sarandon told the ANA-MPA
The actress, who spoke with volunteers and members of non-governmental organizations operating on the island, explained: “As mother of three children I completely understand what means to be a mother with children running away from war and the squalor, to reach the coast and to be forced to make this journey only because you must survive. Let’s hope that very soon the countries that do not participate in the effort to save all these people will do so.” the US EMBASSY ATHENS fb post wrote
