Orlando Bloom in Ukraine – level 2
From Hollywood to Ukraine, Orlando Bloom has travelled to the country for Unicef, an agency which tries to improve the health and education of children. He is the first high-profile celebrity to make the journey for Unicef.
Unicef has spent nearly 70 years working to help children and their families. There are 300,000 children in eastern Ukraine who need help continuing their education.
The father-of-one visited a classroom which shells hit while the students were at school. He spoke to children who are receiving counselling from Unicef-supported psychologists.
Difficult words: high-profile (very popular), shell (a bomb), counselling (consultation, advice, help).
