BENEFITING: US Association for UNHCR
Actor Theo James recently traveled to Greece to learn more about the work the UNHCR is doing to help the refugee crisis there and offer his assistance. Theo himself has a personal connection to this cause as his own Grandfather fled Greece during the Second World War, making his way by boat and then overland through Turkey to Damascus, Syria. Immediately after the Second World War ended, Theo's grandfather worked in Gottingen, Germany with the organization that was the precursor to the UN Refugee Agency, fighting typhoid and tuberculosis in the refugee camps. A group of his fans, who were very moved and inspired by his visit there, are putting together this campaign to help this cause, and join Theo in his efforts.
