What They Took With Them

Alongside Cate Blanchett (which is UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador), Kit Harrington, Juliet Stevenson, Peter Capaldi, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor,Douglas Booth, Jesse Eisenberg and Neil Gaiman, Keira has taken part in a reading of a poem written by Jenifer Toksvig highlighting the current refugee crisis, entitled ‘What They Took With Them’.

The video is exclusively released on the Facebook platform. The centre-piece of the UN Refugee Agency’s #WithRefugees campaign is a petition asking governments to ensure all refugee children can go to school, all refugees have a safe place to live and that all refugees can work and contribute to their local community.

It already has nearly 900,000 signatures and will be delivered to the UN Secretary General and the President of the UN General Assembly on Friday September 16 ahead of the historic UN Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants on September 19.
