“Borat” actor Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife, actress Isla Fisher, have donated $1 million to help Syrian refugees, according to charity organization Save the Children.

Cohen and Fisher will split their donation between Save the Children and the International Rescue Committee.

“500,000 Dollars will be used to fund a programme vaccinating more than 250,000 children against a potential measles outbreak in Northern Syria,” read a press release for the donation. “The other half of the donation will be used to help fund the work to support families, with a special concern for women and children, both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries who are suffering as a result of the ongoing conflict. The money will go towards education, health care, shelter and sanitation.”
