BEIRUT: Lebanese singer and actress Carole Samaha visited the Zaatari refugee camp on the Jordanian-Syrian border as the Global Network for Rights and Development’s goodwill ambassador, the network announced in a press release Saturday.

“It was a poignant visit, but won’t be the last,” Samaha said after checking on the Syrian refugees in the camp, which hosts approximately 130,000 people, of which 25,000 are children.

“I wanted to discover the circumstances in which the Syrian refugees live, and I will do my best along with the GNRD to ensure their daily needs,” she said. “Especially by providing more care to the children.”

Samaha was accompanied by the network’s regional director Ali Al-Ananiza, according to the press release.

The Lebanese celebrity, who won the 2014 World Music Award in Monaco for best performer in the Middle East, signed an agreement with GNRD to become their goodwill ambassador last month in Norway.

In addition to her visit to the Zaatari camp, Samaha will contribute to the realization of a number of donation projects in Egypt and Lebanon within the month of Ramadan, according to the network’s website.
