Charity begins at home. Especially when you have a modern day Supermom like Supermodel Kimora Lee Simmons. When the Fashion Mogul/Veteran Supermodel isn’t busy ruling her empire or grooming her perfect Brady bunch or bagging multiple degrees, she is out here changing lives and teaching her kids to maintain contact with reality.
You know in this social media age, where teens can easily get lost in the fantasy of the “Instagram approved lifestyle” or where everything charitable is simply for the rolling cameras, it is pretty amazing for a Super A-list celebrity like Kimora to involve her kids in actual philanthropic work. All grown up and good-looking, see all of their on-duty shots and read about their charity work as you scroll.
Hello from Greece! 🇬🇷My family and I are so excited to be in Athens with @theunmentionablesorg 💛. Over the next few days, we’ll be meeting with members of the forcibly displaced community, learning more about The Unmentionables’ work in Greece, and getting involved at their Resource Center. Looking forward to sharing our experience with you! ✨
In April, Kimora Lee was named global Ambassador for Non-profit organization The Unmentionables, a foundation that focuses on helping women and forcefully displaced kids by keeping them safe and providing them with access to sexual and reproductive health education, services, protection and empowerment programs, they also provide them with basic knowledge, tools, and skills to help them make well-informed decisions for their futures. Located in Greece, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Egypt and the USA. Kimora and her family of four are currently in Greece, lending a helping hand to the organization and its rehabilitated refugees.
“I am deeply grateful to support the World Refugee Day and that I can expose my own children to opportunities where they can make true, hands-on impact for the greater good,” Kimora Lee says in a statement. Her Kids, 18-year-old Ming Lee Simmons, Aoki Lee Simmons 15, Kenzo Hounsou, 9 and 3 year-old Wolfee Lee Leissner are currently working alongside their mum in Greece, who is using her fame and philanthropic prowess to shed more light on the Unmentionables charity and its vision.
According to the International Rescue Committee, Greece remains a popular European entry point for migrants escaping the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. At the moment, the country is hosting approximately 50,000 refugees, including children arriving separated from their families. More than three-quarters of migrant and refugee children attempting to reach Europe via the Central Mediterranean route face high levels of sexual abuse, exploitation, and trafficking, according to The Unmentionables. The sexual exploitation of male and female minors is rapidly increasing.
