In 2011, more children under the age of five died in India than anywhere else in the world. That's 1.7 million children – over 4,650 child deaths a day – according to a new report by the United Nation's Children's Fund. India not too far you help here too. https://t.co/iAFovdWUce

However, the actress knows what she is talking about and responded with sass.
Your dumbness is profound, there is a difference when you are KILLING them. That’s the problem with you trollers, good for nothing, even in Humanity you see borders. Even for children you see religion. This is what is called the dark age. #HumanRightsDiedInSyria #PrayForSyria https://t.co/tXrjJ8et5J

Syrian government forces on Sunday continued their airstrikes and shelling of Eastern Ghouta, a rebel-held suburb of the capital Damascus, hours after the UN Security Council approved resolution demanding a 30-day nationwide cease-fire.
A week of intense attacks on Eastern Ghouta killed at least 510 people, including 127 minors, according to latest figures.
