She may have millions in the bank, private planes on tap and an eye-wateringly expensive closet, but Dua Lipa is still one of the most grounded celebs out there. Fact. On Monday, the ‘One Kiss’ singer uploaded photos from a trip to the Middle East, Lebanon in particular, where she worked with UNICEF to meet children at refugee settlements.

I’ve had the most eye opening experience being out in Lebanon for the past 3 days working with @unicef meeting children at the refugee settlements and youth training and skill building programs. I particularly want to speak up for refugees as I feel I have a personal connection to seeing people adapt to any circumstance they were put in because of conflict. No family or child chooses to leave their home. They all have dreams. They all deserve equality and a place to be able to live, learn and reach their full potential. I always believe in children as they are our future and we have to take care of them. It was a heartbreaking and emotional yet hopeful experience after seeing these kids still laugh and smile and make the most of a bad situation. I have experienced all first hand the activities and opportunities UNICEF give to young people who have been left without a home because of the war in Syria and it’s nice to see that these children have a community where they feel safe and protected. @unicef #AChildIsAChild

A post shared by Dua Lipa (@dualipa) on

Dua has been in Rayak, Beqaa, for three days now and has been involved in youth training and skill building programmes for the children. She states in her Instagram caption:

"I particularly want to speak up for refugees as I feel I have a personal connection to seeing people adapt to any circumstance they were put in because of conflict."

The pictures she shared are both heartwarming and sincere - and we actually feel quite emosh watchig the 23-year-old laughing and bonding with the children. The Grammy winner also joined children in a classroom where she taught them how to dance. There's something in our eye, okay?

Her motivation for being there is:

"No family or child chooses to leave their home. They all have dreams. They all deserve equality and a place to be able to live, learn and reach their full potential. I always believe in children as they are our future and we have to take care of them."

Dua also describes the situation she found children in. 

"I have experienced all first hand the activities and opportunities UNICEF give to young people who have been left without a home because of the war in Syria and it’s nice to see that these children have a community where they feel safe and protected. @unicef #AChildIsAChild"

It's amazing to witness celebrities step out of their comfort zone and use their position to speak out on important issues. Seriously, props to Dua - who was born in London to Albanian parents who fled conflict and political instability there in 1992 - for taking the initiative to raise awareness for those in incredibly sad situations.

Keep doing what you're doing, Dua.
