Palestinian-American Supermodel Gigi Hadid visits Rohingya camp

Supermodel Gigi Hadid has visited a Rohingya refugee camp recently, as part of a United Nations Children’s Fund Initiative.

She visited Jamtoli refugee camp in Cox’s Bazaar and posted images and stories from the visit on social media platforms.

Gigi posted images of her with Rohingya women and children and wrote, “Millions of people currently require humanitarian assistance, more than half of them are children.”

The visit comes days before the New York Fashion Week in which the supermodel, who is extremely popular on social media, is expected to rule the roost.

The 23-year-old supermodel of Palestinian origin also updated her fans on the work done by UNICEF in the healthcare and gender-violence education sector.

Hadid was named among US’s Glamour Magazine’s ‘Women of the Year’ in 2017 and while accepting the award, she spoke about her father Mohammed Hadid who had once been a Palestinian refugee to the US.

Gigi Hadid also became the fifth highest paid supermodel in US last year according to Forbes.
