STORYLINE:

Grammy-winning recording artist and UNICEF supporter Dua Lipa travelled to Lebanon recently to meet children and young people supported by UNICEF, including many uprooted by the eight-year conflict in Syria.

While in Lebanon, Lipa spoke to vulnerable children and young people about the obstacles they face in their daily lives, in obtaining an education, and in finding jobs and opportunities. As part of her visit, Lipa visited projects implemented in Terbol informal settlement in the Bekaa valley by Lebanese NGO LOST (Lebanese Organisation for Studies and Training), a UNICEF youth partner organization.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dua Lipa, UNICEF supporter and Grammy-winning recording artist:
“I feel lucky that I was given a chance, especially from an immigrant family, to have been born in the UK and been able to live my dream, because I had that opportunity and I feel like every other child should have that opportunity too. To be able to be in a place where they can thrive and be the best version of themselves.”

Lebanon is host to more than one million Syrian refugees, including around 500,000 children, many of whom have faced violence and exploitation, and continue to struggle to receive adequate health care or education.

This is Lipa’s first trip with UNICEF. The London-born, singer-songwriter is the daughter of Kosovar-Albanian parents who fled the conflict and political instability in the Balkans in 1992. Her family later returned to Kosovo with then 11-year old Lipa after security and opportunity returned to the troubled region a decade and a half later.
