Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham made an emotional visit to Syrian refugee families in Jordan.

“In mere months they have built what is essentially a city on top of a piece of flat desert ground,” said the 24-year-old. “With roads, electricity, waste systems, and where they coordinate all services, water and food distribution, schools, health centres.”

“Three days in January changed my life forever,” she wrote in her diary from the trip, Impressions from Zaa’tari Refugee Camp. “The love, the support and the compassion of the human race can be remarkable.” “They shared with me coffee, tea, their family meal,” she remembered. “Whatever they had, which really wasn’t much, was offered to me.”
