Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram and shared a video from Lodwar County Referral hospital on Wednesday.

She is currently working towards saving lives of children who suffer from malnourishment. The actor is in the African country, and has requested people across the globe to support UNICEF's initiative against Kenya’s hunger crisis.

In her latest video, the UNICEF goodwill ambassador shared how critical cases of malnutrition were treated at hospital and everyday seemed a challenge for them and their families. She wore a blue UNICEF T-shirt with a matching cap. She gave a glimpse of the paediatric ward with starved children getting treatment. She can be seen talking with hospital staff in the clip.

Priyanka says in the video, “This is something I hope I never do again, but the reality is that I will. You truly understand the extent of a crisis when you see it in the eyes of the children. The Lodwar County Referral Hospital treats some of the most critical cases of the severe acute malnutrition in the region. And it is heartbreaking to see. These children are in the words of the doctor, wasting away. Families are desperate in way to save their child's life. Everyday is a challenge. "

She gave an account of poverty and said, “The extreme poverty coupled with the worst drought in 40 years is a collision course to tragedy. BUT there is a solution, unlike some of the other emergencies I have traveled to where that is not always the case. Please donate at the link in my bio. A little bit goes a long way.”

She was last seen in The Matrix Resurrections. She has Jee Le Zaraa alongside Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt in pipeline. She has wrapped up her work for debut web series Citadel.
