Ever since our Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra visited Zimbabwe and South Africa she shared some amazing yet heart wrenching moments on her Instagram account.

Priyanka is a Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF. The superstar went to Harare, Zimbabwe three days back and since then her Instagram account has been full of moments shared with the young survivors of child abuse.

She is traveling to Zimbabwe and South Africa to promote UNICEF’s initiative to end violence against children.

In a report published in cbc, Priyanka shared her experience after meeting the survivors. She said, "I heard a lot of this when I asked these government officials who said girls are asking for it." Some girls were as young as three when they were raped by their fathers, uncles or other relatives. It takes people like us who are privileged, who have everything that we may need in abundance, to be able to share it in parts of the world where they may not have that.

Here are some moments Priyanka shared with the young kids at a family trust support clinic in Harare.

 

 

It’s the end of a long day of travel from NYC to Harare but I’m not tired…. In fact, I’m energized, waiting for dawn to break so I can set out on the journey of discovery that these amazing women and men have laid out for me. Meet Team @Unicef. Their passion and compassion is contagious and their hard work and dedication evident in everything I have just seen and heard in our meeting. We are here in Harare Zimbabwe on a field visit in the first part of my trip to Africa as part of our efforts to #EndViolence against Children. I’m looking forward to tomorrow and the opportunity to meet the courageous young survivors, their amazing caregivers and the teams that wake up every day and try to make the world a better place… one child at a time. I want to take you all on this journey with me, real time, and I hope you will join me here on these pages to bring awareness to some very important issues. Like, share, comment… do something. This is so very close to my heart, and know that every action (big or small) counts. #ThisTimeForAfrica #PeaCeLoveHope #foreverychild

Loyd( in the red t shirt) wants to be a musician. He has an incredible voice and is currently finishing a song he's composed called"I'm not shy of my status" thandiwe( the girl in the blue t who wants to be a psychologist ) and Tendai(in the checked t who wants to be an EMT) both had stories that made my heart break over and over again.. these young kids are so brave to have accepted their HIV status and know that they can live a wholesome life instead of giving up..AFRICAID is an inspirational organization that provides specialist services to children to be safe. This incredible group of CATS( community adolescent treatment supporters) who themselves are young children and adults living with HIV.. support HIV positive kids and families with knowledge skills and how to deal with the stigma of living with HIV. #unicef and #AFRICAID have partnered to do so much good work. I'm so moved and privileged to have spent so much time with them and the care workers. ???????? keep inspiring the world.. Ps. I didn't post a pic with the faces of the group since a lot of them wanted their identity concealed because of the stigma they may face.

Priyanka also shared a throwback picture and wrote how all of this started 10 years ago:

 

Throwback to where it all began 10 years ago. My relationship with @unicefindia that lead to me being the global ambassador for #UNICEF..This was a picture from the Deepshikha program that started in india with me and UNICEF years ago about teaching adolescent Indian girls to deal with child marriage, teenage problems and stigma. Thank u #unicef for so many years of field work around the world. For inspiring me to use my platform as a public person to bring light to plight of girls and children around the world. Each child matters. All over the world . ???????? we can all make a difference. Donate your time. And the resources you may want to donate. Touch the children of the world with compassion. The world is ours and the children of the world are our future. Miss u Geetanjali master @natashapal @mrinster . You were the beginning of my journey❤️
