Grammy-winning recording artist Dua Lipa traveled to Lebanon with UNICEF this week to spend time with Syrian children and young people who were uprooted by the prolonged conflict in the war-ravaged country.

Lipa spoke to them about the obstacles they face in their daily lives, in obtaining an education, and in finding jobs and opportunities.

She also visited projects implemented in Terbol informal settlement in the Bekaa valley by Lebanese NGO LOST, a UNICEF youth partner organization.

"You can read about the conditions or see the challenges on TV, but you don't really feel the absolute dire circumstances for refugees from Syria until you see them for yourself," said Lipa.

She also visited Burj el Barajneh Palestinian camp, where she spent time with Palestinian and Syrian children receiving psychosocial support and taking early childhood development courses.

"We are happy to have the support of global champions like Dua Lipa advocating for vulnerable children," said UNICEF's representative in Lebanon, Tanya Chapuisat.
