Cara Delevingne x PUMA Team Up To Support Refugees
The duo present a powerful "DO YOU" documentary series.
A few days ago, we were treated with images from Cara Delevingne’s 2017 spring/summer “DO YOU” campaign with PUMA, and now, the supermodel-turned-actress just revealed there’s more to come from the partnership.
Cara Delevingne and Puma have teamed up to shed light on refugees in Uganda. The duo traveled to Africa with the United Nations’ Girl Up foundation to spend time with refugees who fled South Sudan, and throughout the trip, Delevingne and PUMA filmed a documentary series featuring inspiring stories from the journey.
“As a Girl Up Champion, I’m proud to bring awareness to their partnership with UNHCR supporting education for refugee girls,” said Delevingne. “When it comes to the refugee crisis, we can’t turn away. Seeing the statistics is important, but meeting and talking with the girls is another thing entirely. We can’t let the rest of the world be ignorant on the problem. We need to tell people what’s going on and how they can help.”
Delevingne says the goal of the series is to encourage women and girls to work together and lift each other up. Girl Up focuses on ensuring that adolescent refugee girls in Uganda have access to education. In addition to providing quality education, Girl Up also focuses on hiring and retaining female teachers to ensure that girls feel safe and supported at school.
Watch the trailer above before the series releases in July.
