Lucy Liu Working with Children at Maria's Children
Female: You are watching UNICEF television.
UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Lucy Liu visits the Maria’s children Art Studio in Moscow. Here, children confined to the State Orphanage System to find their inner artists and an unusually creative family.
Lucy Liu: I'm here at Maria Children and I've been here for -- I don’t even know how long. I've lost track of time because we came in when it was so daylight and when the children came in, we started painting and drawing and cutting out all these incredible images of birds and churches and castles and flying horses. If you ask me what time it was, I wouldn’t even know because when you're with children, it totally takes you out of what real time is.
They’re just certain freedom and a certain energy that children have that just makes you feel completely alive. So it’s been such a pleasure to be in Russia here and in Moscow to discover that there is such a little diamond in the middle of the city where children from orphanages can come and just be themselves and not feel like that they’re in an institutional way they have told where to go and when they have to go to bed and what they to do because children should have freedom, because freedom helps them imagine and create and live their lives. And children are all about colors like every colors of possibility. It makes you believe again in life and it’s kind of like a shelter. It’s been a really fantastic experience.
Female: That was UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Lucy Liu at the Maria’s children art studio in Moscow, Russia. Unite for children.
