Actor Orlando Bloom Recounts ‘Heartbreaking’ Visit With Refugees in Greece, Macedonia

Read the Original Story

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Orlando Bloom, who recently traveled to Macedonia and Greece to meet refugees, says countries around the world should take in more people fleeing war and persecution who have become part of the “massive human disaster” that is the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe.

Speaking to Newsweek from Los Angeles, Bloom described scenes at the Greece-Macedonia and Macedonia-Serbia borders, where he saw thousands of men, women and children streaming through toward northern Europe in what he calls a “biblical exodus.” He says the refugees and migrants he met were exhausted, often confused about where they had to go and reluctant to register with authorities in Macedonia and Serbia out of fear that they might eventually be deported back to those countries.
