The Pakistani actress and an international model, Armeena Rana Khan is well recognized overall. She speaks up on all issues as well. When Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar’s war began, Armeena tweeted her personal experience at Lahore. She was not afraid what people might say or think but she knew that was to be said as it is not easy for the victim to come out and speak about what horrifying situation they have faced.
I was in #Anarkali in Lahore in a burka (nobody knew who I was). I literally had my backside groped and breasts grabbed. NOT by one guy but by 2. Now, my family saw that and I asked them why? I was told it was a really common thing there. Did I deserve that? #Metoo #Horrified

With as big a fan following as these celebrities have, they influence people a lot. Armeena Rana used this power and decided to help the refugees in Syria. She has joined hands with the Human Relief Foundation to help the Syrian refugees. That is not all, it gives us immense pride to say Armeena Rana Khan plans to go to Syria herself and help the refugees. Armeena Khan has taken a brave step, to physically go out there and help. All she asks for her fans is to give in donations.
She chose social media as the platform to reach out to her followers and give them guarantee that she takes the responsibility of putting that money into the right cause. Also, it is Ramadan hence Muslims can give in zakat.

How many times have we come across this picture? Now we have the chance to make a difference.
A little kid surrendering to the camera (this broke my heart). I have been following this conflict for years and I finally have had enough. It is time to do something, it is time to do what is in my hands. So my dear ladies and gentleman, I have decided to go out there myself to hand deliver donations, zakat to the war torn refugees and children of #Syria. This is the HOLY month of #Ramadan so start it off with a good deed. Please donate generously as everything will be HAND DELIVERED by myself and the team. The link is in the bio, I hope that you will do your bit in giving these poor children some hope in their lives. Thank you so much, please spread this as much as possible. #ArmeenaKhan @humanrelieffoundation @sairahzafar @hrfnorthwest @shareennawaz @nayna_ray #War #Conflict #Justgive #Fundraising ❤️ ****Please SPREAD the word****** LINK IN BIO***++
Armeena is also lending her support for Ahed Tamimi the young Palestinian activist who confronted Israeli soldiers and has faced imprisonment due to it.
We are so proud of Armeena and wish her all the best. We hope to see more stars following this action as it’s time one steps out instead of sitting behind the screens and giving motivational lectures. More power to you Armeena!
