Ricky hits note with refugees

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Singer Ricky Martin be­lieves the word ‘refugee’ has lost its value and the world should “open its heart”. The 44-year-old Puerto Ri­can spoke dur­ing a visit to Le­banon with UNICEF to meet Syr­ian refugee chil­dren. “At this point what we want is to make sure chil­dren get their rights. Some chil­dren un­for­tu­nately are not go­ing to school,” he said in an in­ter­view in Min­nieh, Le­banon. Martin played foot­ball with the chil­dren, who also per­formed his song ‘Maria’.
