Lindsay Lohan Visits Hospital for Syrian Refugees in Turkey
American actress Lindsay Lohan has visited Syrian refugees at an Istanbul hospital and the home of a refugee family from Aleppo.
30-year-old actress was accompanied by Turkey’s youth and sports deputy minister, Abdurrahim Boynukalın.
Boynukalın says media were not told about Lohan’s visit ahead of time to avoid creating a spectacle and he didn’t specify when it took place.
He said, “The important thing is that a Hollywood star take this matter seriously and bring it to the world stage.”
Boynukalın says the star of such films as “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday” was moved by the hospital, which employs only Syrian doctors and treats refugees, and offered to volunteer there.
Lohan also gave gifts to the refugee family.
