Lindsay Lohan’s charitable Christmas
Lindsay Lohan will spend the festive season working in refugee camps.
The 30-year-old actress spent time working with Syrian refugees in Turkey earlier this year and is planning to go back to the country to help those in need.
She told the New York Post’s Page Six: "I am deciding now if I will head back to do more work in refugee camps in Turkey and Antep during or after the New Year.
"The dates are not set. It depends on how Turkey feels after the recent terrorist attack in Istanbul. Not that any attack has or will ever stop me from helping those suffering, those who need our help the most."
And although Lindsay misses her family, who are based in New York, she is dedicated to helping others this holiday season.
She said: "I miss my family a lot. But they are very supportive and understanding of the fact that my main focus is business, writing and soon to start another film. More so, my work with refugees.
"I always love giving gifts. So yes, for family and friends, most definitely I will be sending gifts. For me, I know it sounds silly, but, I am okay. I like to live by the act of giving. In all honesty, I am good with no materialistic gifts."
However, Lindsay will also make time for partying and will spend New Year’s Eve in Dubai.
She said: "It will be announced soon but I will be hosting New Year’s Eve at Zero Gravity in Dubai which I am very excited about."
It was previously revealed the ‘Just My Luck’ star was "passionate" about working with young refugees.
A source said: "She spends time interacting with the kids. Listening to them, hearing their stories. Lindsay has always been passionate about children, especially those impacted by circumstances outside their control. She loves the work."
It had also previously been reported that the Hollywood star offered to volunteer at a hospital in Istanbul, which is staffed completely by Syrian doctors.
Turkey’s youth and sports deputy minister Abdurrahim Boynukalin accompanied the ‘Freaky Friday’ star on her trip, and later praised her for her efforts.
He said: "The important thing is that a Hollywood star takes this matter seriously and bring it to the world stage."
