U.N. Goodwill ambassador and Hollywood actor Cate Blanchett performed the rhythmic poem ‘What They Took With Them’ along with fellow actors Keira Knightley, Juliet Stevenson, Peter Capaldi, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kit Harington, Douglas Booth, Jesse Eisenberg and Neil Gaiman in a new video produced by the U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR.

The Poem was originally written by Jenifer Toksvig and was inspired by stories and first-hand experiences shared by refugees forced to flee their homes and belongings they took with them.

Over 65 Million people across the globe have been forced to leave their homes. This video launched on Facebook last Monday is an attempt to urge governments to act with solidarity and share responsibility in meeting the needs of refugees worldwide.
