thank you all for the pictures and articles

These pictures were really touching, in this sad situation of devastation, there can still be a moment of smiles, of small hope

So far no.
I was hope/hoping that someone will meet her. I was thinking a member would also accompany her but I was wrong.

I think the poster was just repeating what the article stated, so blame the reporter not the poster.

This is what I like about Mary, bringing awareness of difficult situations that need to be highlighted. Fantastic that she draws comparisons to 'real life' we often forget that refugees are the displaced, worried mums and dads, ordinary citizens scared of the conflict. I really hope for resolution.

This is not against Mary, because she is invited by her patronage/government but I dont like the idea of royals going 'global', what the point of such visits other than PR because the representants mostly don't have a clue, they go with their designer dresses, high heels & diamond rings, its all about posing and photo ops and I sometimes feel sorry for the refugees/victims of all kinds that they are being exposed/used again like that.

Its sad that we need 'royals' to go there because only for that reasons the pictures will end up in certain magazines, so Mr Bach or the organisation will have extra coverage because of Mary, because if the experts on the issue go on their own nobody will notice.

Especially Mary is hardly working in Denmark any longer but increasingly going for a 'Rania-like' role, Africa, now Jordan, next week Morokko, I am a bit clueless why a Danish or whatever country's CP has to go there to promote what kind of interest again? But maybe its just the world we are living in, you need a pretty woman with a certain social standing to 'raise awareness' which means what, looking at the pictures afterwards, and Mary is a good candidate to fit such a role.

I agree, Duke. As if the only thing these children need is a royal hug and smile. Disgusting, IMO. And we live in the 'era of information', everybody knows what is going on in Syria and everywhere else in the world. Diana could 'raise awareness' back in the 80s and 90s, because the times were different. These ladies had better find something more productive to do.

Like what?

Syria is on the main news several times a week - and then forgotten by the next cookie.
Syrian refugees? Who gives a hoot? Several million refugees, that's an abstract incomprehensible figure to most people. (And fortunately for that)! So they are ignored, it's easier to relate to someone who's dog has been run over by the neighbor. That we can comprehend.
But refugees in Syria? That's far away and archived under: "none of our business".

What Mary has done is to put a face on the refugees and their plight, even for only a few days. Also among those who usually let the news go in one ear and out the other.
Tell me what Mary could have done that was more productive than this?

In contrast to you, I imagine, I've been to refugee camps myself in the 90's.
So permit me to be blunt: You don't know what you are talking about.

And Mary putting focus on refugees and women who have been abused, is very much in line with the current governments policy on aiding refugees and offering assistance to humanitarian organisations working in the aftermath of the Arabic Spring.

And that is exactly what is the point of the visit. And it has been successful. Mary is good (also because of the fact that she's the most covered royal in the DRF) to create a lot of attention about neglected situations and she is good at getting her message out to the individual Dane. The Danish media have covered Marys days in Jordan closely - also in the news in the evenings.

Mary's visit in Jordan is also the frontpage of our newspaper B.T. today.

For a couple days, exactly. You basically just supported my argument, so I don't need to add anything here.

I'll tell you: given the fact that this particular lady has shown no specific talents, she could just sit at home with her many children, who are so young and need her so much.

You may go on fantasizing about this Saint Mary of yours, but you can't convince us that she raised awareness of this tragic topic and situation, that has been going on for almost two years now. Unless the Danes are indeed as slow as your Crown Princess once described them and still haven't got a clue about the civil war in Syria. And you can also go on distorting my words, no problem.

So little attention is worse than no attention?

And Mary should rather stay at home and look after her children? - Children who at least have a home and a mother, who are safe and whose relatives are not getting killed...
Rather than try, despite her lack of talents, try to make just a little difference? However insignificant it may be?

We look at things differently I guess. You may end up needing help too one day. If that happens let's hope not too many think it's better to stay at home.

That would at least be something,yes. Most monarchies are pointless, the Danish one seems on top of that......

Mother Mary may come one day to safe us all,but let's not think it will be Mary Donaldson. Don't get me wrong, dear Muhler. I love a dashing Prada outfit, but I don't think it can safe little kids in war areas.......

Come on, we all know that Saint Diana and Saint Elizabeth Taylor were the only ones who could raise awareness (with totally pure motives of course), everyone else who tries simply has to be insulted.

Cp Mary is the patron of the Danish Refugee Council, so IMO it's quite natural that she highlights their work abroad (e.g.: in Jordan) and in DK (don't worry Duke, she will open a new DRC language center in DK this month). And helps them raise awareness and not least money for their causes.

And this is the information we got about the DRC's work with Syrian refugees:
Quote:
The Crown Princess is the patron of the Danish Refugee Council, which is in charge of distributing basic relief aid in refugee camps, both in neighbouring countries but also in Syria. The Danish Refugee Council and the Danish Red Cross are among the few relief organizations that have the Syrian regime’s permission to operate in the country and therefore play a central role in the international community’s humanitarian efforts.

Pity you :)

Any reminder of a crisis is a good thing for those suffering in the refugee camps. They are human beings who are forced from their lives and herded into pitiful circumstances at the whim of others, herded behind barbed wire.
But hey... who gives a damn 'mother Mary' just wanted more frequent flyer bonuses.:) :)

Get a life people! How disgusting, I hope you are never in this circumstance and have to rely on perfumed, Prada wearing 'princesses' to remind the world you are not animals and don't deserve this :)

If Mary managed to give these people 5 minutes of humanity and remind the world of their misfortune then she has been a major success :) :) :) :)

"have to rely on perfumed, Prada wearing 'princesses' to remind the world you are not animals and don't deserve this"

I hope you do realize that this reflects your own view of these people and not anybody else's and it's the most disgusting thing that has been said here so far. You are so delusional... The Syrians' drama has been on the news and newspapers, all over the world, every single day for the past two years at least. What is the purpose of Mary's visit? It's a pointless, desperate PR move that added absolutely nothing to these people's pain and sorrows.

Since Diana was mentioned above, I must say that back then at least we learnt a thing or two about Angola, for example. That was a fact, people in the West didn't even know where Angola was, let alone about the landmines and so on. Now what is the purpose? Tell me, who hasn't heard YET that there's a civil war in Syria and thousands of refugees and famine, diseases and so on? Know what, I would be hugely insulted by this visit if I were one of these women.

Prada? Good grief!

Oh, don't worry, I don't get you wrong.
But let me ask you a little question and you don't have to answer. Did you, during this week think for just one moment of the Syrian refugees before you came here and read about Mary's visit? - You do now. If for no other reason than to put Mary down.

If you find Mary's effort inadequate, how about you get your finger out and do something yourself? They can always use volunteers at refugee camps.
You might even grow up...
