Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra on Thursday urged the world to extend support to Rohingya children living in vulnerable conditions at refugee camps in Cox's Bazar.

Priyanka Chopra, who has visited many countries as an advocate for children's rights and goodwill member of Unicef, is on a four-day trip to Cox's Bazar.

"No child deserves a life like this. These children deserve a right to have a future, the right to dream," she said on a Facebook Live session from Ukhia this morning.

The Bollywood diva interacted with children and chatted about how their life was before they came to the camps.

Priyanka posted a few pictures and videos on her Facebook page. She wrote a caption with a call to action: "The world needs to care. We need to care. Please lend your support at www.supportunicef.org #ChildrenUprooted @unicef @unicefbangladesh." 

The young actor wishes to do all that she can for humanity.  

Priyanka said all refugee children want to be educated and thanked Bangladesh for “incredibly” opening its doors to so many refugees.

"Now they can at least dream about having education; a five-year-old boy I met made a profound comment saying he wants to be a journalist and tell the world that it's bad for everyone when countries fight," she said.

"I get emotional but feel positive to see how happy children are with the little they have," said Priyanka.
