George and Amal Clooney donate Ksh10M towards migrant charity

George and Amal Clooney have donated $100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.

The ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ actor and the 40-year-old human rights lawyer – who have 12-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander, together – have revealed they are doing what they can to help migrant children who have been separated from their families, by donating the whopping sum to the non-profit organization.

George, 57, and Amal made the decision after saying they couldn’t sit by and do nothing in the face of the refugee crisis, especially when they’re parents of young children themselves.

Speaking to People magazine, they said in a joint statement: “At some point in the future our children will ask us: ‘Is it true, did our country really take babies from their parents and put them in detention centers?’ And when we answer yes, they’ll ask us what we did about it. What we said. Where we stood. We can’t change this administration’s policy but we can help defend the victims of it. Today, the Clooney Foundation for Justice will donate $100,000 to the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.”

And the charity’s Executive Director, Maria Woltjen, released her own statement following the donation, in which she thanked them for their “generous support”.

She said: “This Administration’s policy disregards international law and basic principles of human decency. To treat children in such a cruel manner not only violates their legal rights but also their basic needs. We are doing everything we can to advocate on behalf of the thousands of children who are separated and alone, and we are grateful for the generous support of George and Amal Clooney and the Clooney Foundation for Justice – it could not be more vital at this time.”

For the famous couple, it comes as just one of their recent good deeds, as in February they also donated $500,000 to the March for Our Lives campaign, which was a demonstration to advocate for gun control.
