Cara Delevingne is opening up about her experience traveling to Uganda at the beginning of the year.
The 24-year-old model and actress partnered up with Girl Up and the United Nations Refugee Agency to travel to Africa and learn more about the incredible work they are doing.
“Our week-long trip began with visits to refugee entry points in northern Uganda along the border of South Sudan. We actually walked across the same bridges as the 460,000 refugees (an average of 2,000 per day) who have entered Uganda in the last six months alone,” Cara wrote in Marie Claire.
She added, “We talked with UNHCR partners and Ugandan government officials at the border who give refugees a hot meal, medical services, and transport to a settlement where they can begin to rebuild their lives again.”
Cara also went on to discuss the importance of education for the young refugees who do not have the means to continuing schooling and are often forced to drop out and end up marrying extremely young.
