Celine Dion is committed to Ukraine. The Canadian recorded Friday, April 8 a message for Global Citizen, an international organization that works against poverty in the world.

In her message in support of the Ukrainian people, Celine Dion challenged the international community, calling on it to act without further delay. “I raise my voice for Ukraine. To all leaders of the international community: we need you now, more than ever before, to answer everyone’s calls. Activists, supporters and volunteers who are working to helping refugees from Ukraine and around the world.”
Celine Dion continues: “Tomorrow, you will have to decide what support you will give to these people who have been forced to leave their homes, their country, their loved ones they love so much. Please stand up for these refugees wherever you are and provide whatever financial support you are able to give.”
