Ricky hits note with refugees
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’.
