Lindsay Lohan made a low-key trip to Istanbul, on Monday, to visit Syrian refugees at a local hospital.
The 30-year-old actress delivered gifts and spent time with an injured father and his children, all of whom escaped the war-torn city of Aleppo.
Lohan was accompanied by Turkey’s youth and sports deputy minister Abdurrahim Boynukalin, who said the appearance was kept hush to avoid a spectacle: “The important thing is that a Hollywood star take this matter seriously and bring it to the world stage.”
The “Freaky Friday” star was said to be moved by the meeting and even shed a few tears. She shared a photo on Instagram with a little girl named Heya, who she shan’t forget: “I can’t forget Heya whom I met during my visit to the Hussein family. She couldn’t care less about our gifts to her, whose mother has gone. She held me more and more tight when she sat on my lap. I sniffed her hair, took her hands and held her tight. I understood at that moment once again… We should do more, starting today.”
Lohan was said to have even offered to volunteer at the hospital.
