Jennifer Garner visits Afghan refugee camp in Washington D.C.

Jennifer Garner is showing love towards the Afghan refugee children.

The 49-year-old actress stepped inside an Afghan refugee center near Washington, D.C., arranged by Save the Children. The center is located in the Dulles Airport and has welcomed thousands of Afghani families.

"This is a human endeavor," Garner wrote alongside her post on Instagram this Saturday. "I am so grateful Save the Children is helping the US Dept of State welcome Afghan refugees, and hope you can help me support these families and this work."

"These children and families have been through so much — many of the families I spoke with have been in transit for weeks, and are understandably exhausted," Garner said in a statement to the organization. "I see Save the Children's services provide such a sense of relief for the parents, and a sense of joy for the kids."

She continued, "Afghan children have known nothing but conflict their entire lives," added the mother of three. "I got to see their beautiful art, sing songs and receive some really big hugs."

"A world of healing happens for kids in these child-focused play areas," Garner continued. "This may be the first time these children have felt safe in months, and the activity space gives them the chance to have fun and just be kids—after all they've been through, they desperately need that," concluded Garner.
