She has just returned from an humanitarian trip to Greece.
The 40-year-old actress was seen wearing no make-up and an Artolution T-shirt, as she arrived at the camp to make art with refugees based there.
The beauty – who is rumoured to have now split from Jamie Foxx – arrived on the island of Lesbos last weekend.
Tom Cruise’s ex-wife and their 12-year-old daughter worked with some of the women and young children at the camp to create art projects.
Katie wrote on her Instagram: ‘I am so grateful for this experience of working with and getting to know these incredible women in #moriarefugeecamp their hearts are so kind.’

The Dawson’s Creek actress is a global ambassador for Artolution, a community-based public art project that helps to address a variety of challenges faced by local residents.
Suri, dressed in a charity T-shirt, was also seen playing with a younger boy as the pre-teen got stuck in with the volunteering experience.

They were issued a 30-day deadline for improvement and it now seems like Artolution will have been able to ease some of the improvements.
They reported that the overcrowding at the camp is so extreme that asylum seekers spend as much as 12 hours a day waiting in line for food that is sometimes moldy.
The majority of the camp’s residents are Syrian, Iraqi and Afghan refugees, many of whom have suffered wartime traumas that are then exacerbated by the overcrowded and static conditions, they reported.
Katie’s trip follows claims that her long-term relationship with Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx has come to an end.
Jamie allegedly declared that he was ‘single’ at a February Oscars party, but since then, neither has addressed any break up publicly.
It’s been just over two years since Katie and Jamie went public with their notoriously secretive romance, after years of speculation.
Last November, there was speculation that they were planning a secret wedding in Paris, despite never confirming an engagement.
