Sharing a video where she is directly addressing the camera, Amanda said: "Hi guys, our organization Inara is taking four refugees to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, that's one of seven summits, and it is no small feat."

Inara was founded by Arwa Damon in 2015, and supports and works with children from conflict areas who have suffered physical and mental harm.

The Mean Girls star further explained: "Our young refugee climbers have been injured physically and emotionally by the wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Ukraine.
