Lindsay Lohan has kept out of the public eye for some time now and she has turned her attention to a larger issues on the political stage.

Lohan is lobbying the UN Security Council to include Turkey.

She was in Turkey visiting a camp for Syrian refugees this week, holding babies and even changing into a doctor's robe to help with medical checks.

Middle East news site Al-Monitor said that "Lohan's compatriot Angelina Jolie has visited the same refugee camps along the Syrian border several times, but she never elicited the gushing enthusiasm afforded Lohan."

"Lohan has waded into Turkish politics in a big way, spouting, among other things, one of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's worthier mantras: 'The world is bigger than five'"

Reported the Turkish Daily Sabah: "Lohan expressed support for Ankara's call for a change in the structure of the international body for countries outside the five permanent members to have more of a say on international issues."

Lindsay's fans enjoyed that she showed up to a press conference with a headscarf that an aid worker gave her. And she revealed on Turkish TV that she studied the Koran, though she admitted "they crucified me for it in America."

When Lohan was asked if she's filming any movies, she said she "would be interested in working on a film about refugees."
