In the black-and-white pic the Dawson’s Creek alum, 40, posted on Instagram on Saturday, March 23, Suri, 12, can be seen playing with a younger child at Moria refugee camp. The only daughter of Holmes and her ex-husband has her long hair in two braids and is wearing a T-shirt, jeans and sneakers as she smiles in the candid shot.
Holmes and her daughter spent a couple of days visiting the camp for Syrian refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos. The pair worked with volunteers from Artolution, a charity that promotes public art initiatives to promote healing and positive social change. Holmes is a global ambassador for the charity.
In a post on Artolution’s Instagram page, Holmes and Suri posed with other volunteers in front of a colorful mural.
“Thank you to our #globalambassadorforartolution, @katieholmes212, for your support AND working on the ground with us in Greece, teaching performance to refugees in the Moria Refugee Camp! Showing up and sharing this experience together. Kindness in action,” the pic was captioned.
Holmes also shared the shot, writing, “wonderful to spend time with such beautiful souls.”
The Logan Lucky star posted more pics on social media that showed her cradling a young child in her lap.
“I love these women who became our friends as we collaborated on many different projects this week,” she captioned a shot that showed her painting red hearts on a piece of paper. “I am so very grateful for this experience. The resilience of these women is so profound and truly inspiring to witness. and I pray for refugees everywhere.”
Holmes has spoken in the past about her daughter’s charitable spirit and big heart. “My little one is very, very generous and very sensitive,” she said on the Today show in 2015. “So she’s always [saying], ‘Mom, let’s give my old toys to people who need it.’”
She and Cruise split in 2012 after five years of marriage. Us Weekly broke the news in 2015 that Holmes had been secretly dating Jamie Foxx for two years. The pair were spotted kissing on a romantic vacation in Miami in late December. “She’s infatuated with him,” a source later told Us.
