Jul 15,2017 - Last updated at Jul 15,2017

Jessica Kahawaty, a Lebanese-Australian model with a background in human rights law, has recently visited the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp, as part of Louis Vuitton’s efforts to raise awareness and funds for Syrian children, facing the world’s most challenging humanitarian crisis, according to a statement of the UNICEF. 

The Jordan-based Zaatari Refugee Camp with a population of 79,000 Syrian refugees is about 12 km from the Syrian border.

“This visit to Zaatari Refugee Camp was extremely powerful — heartbreaking, but full of hope.  There is an incredible generation of children who believe in education and making a difference…,” Kahawaty was quoted in the statement as saying. 

Since January 2016, the Louis Vuitton for UNICEF partnership has raised more than $2.5m to help bring children life-saving humanitarian support,.
