Teaming up with the UN Refugee Agency, which works to provide aid and protection to those displaced from their homes, Cumming spent two days traveling through northern and southern Lebanon, where he met with refugees to hear their personal stories.

Sharing his experience to Instagram, the 51-year-old actor posted a touching photo with a young boy named Mohammad, who was forced to leave Syria. He wrote, “His family were forced to leave Syria and are living in a makeshift shelter in Northern Lebanon, but helped by a UNHCR shelter kit.”
