Former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra, was today appointed by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as a National Ambassador for child rights and adolescence in India.
At a ceremony in New Delhi, the film said:
“I am very honoured to formalize my association with UNICEF as their National Ambassador to help bring awareness for child rights and adolescence.”
“Over the past few years, I have worked very closely with the team at UNICEF to bring awareness to a number of causes related to India’s young and I realized that there is so much more to be done. I hope that by lending my voice I can make a difference to their lives.”
UNICEF representative Karin Hulshof said that the UN agency was “thrilled” to have Chopra working with them.
Ms. Chopra joins Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Sharmila Tagore in supporting UNICEF’s work for children in India and around the world.
