Salma (Selma) Hayek in Lebanon
to visit Syrian refugees…
And launch her new movie “The Prophet

April 28, 2015, 08h08

Traveling between the glamorous side of life and the poorest one, Salma Hayek visited Lebanon this weekend to launch CHIME for the Children of Syria (a fundraising appeal to support children and families affected by the Syria crisis).
The actress was also in Lebanon to launch her animated movie, The Prophet.
A UNICEF supporter and CHIME FOR CHANGE campaign Co-Founder, Salma Hayek visited Syrian refugees in Lebanon during a visit to the country this week-end.Founded by Gucci, a UNICEF partner, CHIME FOR CHANGE is a global campaignto raise funds and awareness for girls and women around the world focusing on the areas of education, health and justice.”

Hayek visited Syrian refugees in Lebanon on April 25, to draw attention to the urgent humanitarian needs of children and families whose lives have been upended by the brutal conflict in Syria over the last four years, UNICEF stated in a press release.

Across the region, UNICEF estimates that 14 million children have been affected and are at risk of becoming a lost generation, including 2.6 million children who are no longer in school, and close to two million who are living as refugees in neighboring countries.

“Millions of children have been robbed of their childhood, their country and have lost their loved ones. As a result of the conflict in Syria, they are missing out on their education and are having to work to provide for their families,” said Hayek.

“By donating to the CHIME for the Children of Syria fundraising appeal, you are supporting UNICEF’s efforts to provide children with access to learning opportunities and support services to help them cope with the violence they have experienced. The conflict should not mean that an entire generation is lost.”

In Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, Hayek met with refugee children and aid workers who are providing a safe environment through counselling, play and learning activities.

Hayek observed a polio immunization campaign targeting high risk areas, in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health, UNICEF and local partner Beyond Association to protect nearly 190,000 children under the age of five from the crippling disease.

She also witnessed mobile medical clinics set up by UNICEF, the Ministry, and local partners to provide free primary healthcare, including access to vaccines, critically needed examinations, basic medicine and antenatal care to refugees in tented settlements across Lebanon.

“I’m deeply inspired by the courage of the Syrian refugee children and their families that I met in Lebanon who, against the odds, and despite the harm they have suffered or witnessed, are still determined to endure life and hope for a better future. I’m also moved by the generosity so many Lebanese people have shown toward those seeking refuge in their country,” said Hayek, whose paternal grandparents were Lebanese. “I plead to everyone who is grateful for the peace and stability in their lives to show compassion for those who have lost it all and to help.”

From the Bekaa to the red carpet

Well-known for films such as Frida, Puss in Boots and most recently The Prophet, Hayek is also member of the CHIME FOR CHANGE Founding Committee supporting women and girls’ empowerment. In 2008, Hayek travelled to Sierra Leone with UNICEF to witness first hand the impact of maternal and neonatal tetanus on women and babies and observe UNICEF’s health and immunization programs.

The Gucci-UNICEF partnership was launched in 2005, and has benefitted more than 7.5 million children to date through UNICEF programs that focus on helping the most disadvantaged children have a brighter future through education.

During her visit to Lebanon, Salma Hayek also took part in the glamorous event organized at Ecole Superieure des Affaires in Beirut to launch her latest movie, The Prophet, dedicated to the life of Gebran Khalil Gebran. The Premiere of the film was screened at Cinema City, Beirut Souks.

The contrast between the two respective worlds of show business and extreme poverty had something shocking to us. VIPs posted many selfies on Facebook explaining they were meeting with Salma Hayek, making this event one of the most important of the season.

However, apart from the pictures released by UNICEF, we couldn’t spot many photos on the Social media of Hayek visiting the Syrian refugee camp in the Bekaa Valley. The refugees might not have been able to post their pics on Facebook.

Let’s hope the fundraising campaign will go well anyway.

Fresh discovery: He is of Lebanese Origin your God

 Omar Sharif, Mika, Salma Hayek, Terrence Malick, Paul Anka, Shakira, the Mexican/Lebanese #1 world billionaire, the most educated minority in the USA…and many others are all international celebrities of Lebanese origin.

But those big names are about to be eclipsed by the biggest personality of them all – God! According to the findings of a recent extensive investigation, God is also of Lebanese origin, a revelation that is bound to shock the world and increase the Lebanese people’s pride in their country.
Karl reMarks posted:

The investigation was carried out by the Lebanese Centre for the Discovery of Celebrities of Lebanese Origin, (LCDCLO), one of the most trusted organisations in the world in the field of tracing celebrities of Lebanese origin. The Beirut-based organisation employed a team of researchers over a period of five years and they were able to prove beyond doubt that God is indeed of Lebanese origin.

Although not much is known of God’s early days there were clues in religious texts to His background. For example the name of God in Phoenician is ‘El’ which is a Phoenician word and therefore a strong indication that He was Phoenician.

The Arabic name for God is ‘Allah’ which is part of the common Lebanese expression ‘inshallah’, hinting strongly at a connection between the two. Even in English, the word God sounds like the word God in the Lebanese dialect popular among teenagers in coastal cities.

Furthermore, historical research revealed that Eden is most likely to be the Lebanese town of Ehden, which explains why the townsfolk refer to God as one of them. The link is so strong that it is widely expected that famous Lebanese writer Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of the influential book The Black Swan, would certainly endorse it. Taleb has emerged as a unique thinker in recent years and his authority is unparalleled.

The beautiful town of Ehden near the sky

On a less scientific level but no less authoritative, it is widely known that Lebanon has unmatched natural beauty, as if God wanted to give it that little bit extra to celebrate his place of origin. Lebanon’s scenic nature, mountains and sea are famed across the world, a fact that is proven by how many times it places on the top of polls to determine which countries are the most beautiful.

Another crucial piece of evidence is a bit of Lebanese folklore that is popular in traditional songs which goes ‘Lebanon is a piece of the sky’. Historians hired by the LCDCLO confirmed that this is proof of the connection between God and Lebanon, it has survived in the language for thousands of years as evidence of the connection between the Divine Being and his place of origin.

The Israeli lobby tried its best to discredit these important findings, arguing that in fact God clearly came from the land of Israel, as stated in the Bible which is the oldest monotheistic text. However a famous Lebanese poet refuted the Israeli claims and argued that since the mountains of Lebanon are the tallest in the region, they would have been God’s natural choice.

The news was met with massive celebrations in Lebanon, helping lift the gloomy mood in the country. Many people stated that they were not surprised because they always expected this to be the case, citing Lebanon’s divine beauty as clear proof.

Many said their desire to emigrate was primarily because they didn’t deserve to live in God’s own country.

The mood of celebration was slightly soured however by clashes among Lebanese of different factions as to what the real sect of God is. In certain parts of the country the clashes descended into armed skirmishes in which light weapons were used.

The upside however is only the real people of God could feel so passionately about Him.

Note: Adam and Eve lived in Heaven Lebanon. Even now, Lebanese cannot enjoy electricity, running water, institutions designed to serve the citizens, potable water, an elected parliament or able to elect a President to its Republic.
