We hung out with Ugandan model @aamito_lagum recently, and she clued us in on how she takes her selfies. We took notes.

Check out our feature video on YouTube for a look into her life.

As world leaders gather in NYC for the #UNGA, our team at @oxfamamerica rented President Donald Trump's childhood home in NYC and invited refugees who escaped conflict and persecution to share their stories, be heard, and call for greaterΒ action by the US government and world leaders. The unequivocal message sent to world leaders πŸ‘‰ refugees are welcome here πŸ‘ˆ. β€’

It has been an interesting few days in West Nile (πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¬ ,Africa).
So many emotional stories especially of women trying to forge a livelihood from barely nothing in the settlement camps . It's so hard to put it into words. It was also super great joining @danielgillies on this eye opening experience.

Thank you @mr.danielgillies for helping bring attention to the four nations on the brink of famine... - COME WITH ME TO UGANDA.

One week ago today we celebrated World Refugee Day. As a global community we honored the displaced and the destitute. And while I am delighted that such a day exists -- It's important to remember that 'Refugee Day' is every day for tens of millions of people around the globe.

Let's talk about South Sudan:
Ravaged by the forces of Civil War, 3 million people have fled their homes, 1.4 million are refugees, 100k people are starving and several million are on the brink of famine. Villages are being burned to the ground, children snatched from their homes in the night, while innocent people are butchered in the streets. And no one is talking about this.
At least not where I live.
So let's talk about it.

In a few weeks I'm going to join forces with Oxfam (One of the greatest organizations in the war against poverty -- Oxfam.org) and we're going to speak with refugees together. We're going to take some cameras into Bidibidi, Uganda. I'm going to interview the refugees there. Then I'm gonna share these interviews with you. And hopefully, you share them with as many people as you can…through whatever means... I'd like to treat them with dignity they don't seem to be receiving in the media.

We are going to listen and initiate a conversation.
This conversation begins today.
Please HIT THE LINK IN MY BIO if you would like to make a donation to the heroes at Oxfam who offer assistance and tremendous care to the refugees of the South Sudan every day.
Love and Peace --

Shocking new figures are out on the global refugee crisis: 65.6 million people, more than ever before, are now on the move, forced to flee conflict, violence and persecution.

That's one person forced to flee their home every three seconds last year. Governments must all help these people, and to tackle the root causes of the problem.
