Last month David Morrissey (The Governor) visited with Syrian refugees in the war torn middle eastern country with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and during his eye opening visit with several families ripped apart by the fighting and devastation in Syria, David also managed to record a touching PSA for refugees all over the world. You can watch David’s plea for assistance in the clip below, titled, “The Most Urgent Story of Our Time.”

“Let me tell you a story the most urgent story of our time of millions of families forced to flee,” he begins. “Too often it’s a story of unspeakable horror, fear, and loss, but also a story of great courage and survival,” he continues over a myriad of shots of refugees, young and old, from every corner of the world.

He concludes by kindly asking viewers to join him in his support of UNHCR. “Please show you care,” he asks. “Join UNHCR and share this story.”

Phew, excuse us while we dab a little something from our eye…

David may have played a one-eyed villain on TWD, but this video proves that in real life the British actor is anything but. Grab a few tissues, have your checkbook handy, and check out David’s moving video below to find out what you can do to help support the millions of refugees around the world.
