Lindsay Lohan helps Syrian refugees

Lindsay Lohan is helping Syrian refugees in Turkey.

The 30-year-old actress has been spending quality time with the refugees in their camp, and "loves" spending time interacting with the children and listening to their stories.

An insider told the New York Post's Page Six column: "She spends time interacting with the kids. Listening to them, hearing their stories. Lindsay has always been passionate about children, especially those impacted by circumstances outside their control. She loves the work."

The 'Mean Girls' actress made a visit to a hospital near Istanbul in order to meet an injured father and his children who had fled from the city of Aleppo in Syria - a city that has come under numerous attacks from terrorist organisation ISIS.

It has also been reported that the Hollywood star offered to volunteer at the hospital, which is staffed completely by Syrian doctors.

Turkey's youth and sports deputy minister Abdurrahim Boynukalin accompanied the 'Freaky Friday' star on her trip, and later praised her for her efforts.

He said: "The important thing is that a Hollywood star takes this matter seriously and bring it to the world stage."

And the 'Just My Luck' star's kind gesture toward refugees who fear for their lives comes just days after she admitted to Russian TV's Channel One that she was terrified of her ex-fiancé Egor Tarabasov. The star feared he would throw acid in her face after he broke into her home.

She said: "I went to bed and he broke into my house. He started strangling me.

"I feared that Egor may splash acid in my face.

"I jumped out to the balcony and shouted with all my force, 'He's trying to kill me, call the police!' I am lucky to come to Moscow to speak."
