Susan Sarandon spending Christmas with Syrian refugees

Los Angeles: Hollywood veteran Susan Sarandon is spending her Christmas in Lesbos to bring awareness to the Syrian refugee crisis.

The “Dead Man Walking” star travelled to the Greek Island to meet with refugees who are fleeing the war-torn country, but Sarandon, 69, said she also has a personal reason for the visit, reported People magazine.

“I have come to Lesbos and will stay through Christmas, to listen and learn the stories of refugees who are fleeing from war and persecution,” she said.

“I also came to honour my grandparents, who were immigrants. The international community must see what is happening in this corner of the world. It must realise the size of the problem and understand it. These people should stop being somebody else and must become the refugees that we must stand by.
