Sharon Stone travelled to Israel as a guest of Peres Center for Peace in a bid to encourage peace efforts.
During her trip, Stone planned to play soccer with a group of Israeli and Palestinian children, visit Palestinian children who are being cared for in Israeli hospitals, and celebrate her 48th birthday with a fundraising gala for children’s educational and health projects.
She is hoping that her celebrity status will highlight the efforts of those working together to create peace, and inspire more people to get involved.
Stone was also welcomed by the Holon Woman’s Festival, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Her schedule included taking part in a panel focused on prominent women from different disciplines.
She is urging women to work equally as a team with men in bringing peace to the Middle East.
