The actress also thanked all private and public sectors for their continued support. 

She wrote: “Missing home 🌍 . Terribly so💔. Going through my archives of my time in South Sudan and I’m thinking of all the humanitarians in crisis control mode, in the field working hard to educate and protect refugees on the current pandemic. Thanking all private and public sector who continue to support @refugees and our High Commisioner @filippograndi as well as the @unitednations for launching the $2 billion humanitarian response plan to fund the fight against #covid_19 and protect the most vulnerable and marginalized. 🕊.”
