Stiller, supermodel stand with refugees

 

UNITED NATIONS — Actor Ben Stiller and supermodel Alek Wek are standing with refugees.

Stiller and Wek visited the U.N. General Assembly on Friday to present Secretary General Ban Ki-moon with a petition bearing more than 1.3 million signatures, calling on governments to act with solidarity and shared responsibility for the world’s 21.3 million refugees.

Wek, who was forced to flee her home in what is now South Sudan at age 9, said she wouldn’t be where she is today if not for the U.N. Refugee Agency.

Stiller read from the petition that asks governments to ensure every refugee child gets an education, every refugee has somewhere to live and that refugees work or learn new skills.
