Princess of All Media, Anne Curtis is the newly appointed Celebrity Advocate for Children by UNICEF.
The actress will help in promoting Early Childhood Care & Development, will help in organizing support and resources for the most vulnerable children and families, those living in abject poverty or are affected by violence, abuse, exploitation, and particularly in emergency and conflict situations.
Anne spent two moving days visiting parts of Leyte and took time to engage and interact with children and their families who are now recovering from the incident brought by Typhoon Yolanda.
“I’m truly honored to share that I have newly been appointed as a UNICEF Celebrity Advocate for Children. I just finished a 2 day field visit in Leyte where I learned about the needs and issues of the Life Cycle of a child. I got to spend time with mothers and their new borns, read to children in a child friendly space, experienced speaking to the youth about adolescent issues by way of UNICEF’s “Usap Tayo” sessions and visited schools and day care centers where I was able to understand and see for myself how important it is to have Early Childhood Care and Development. As I’ve said, it’s truly been a fulfilling and meaningful visit. This is something I will remember for the rest of my life. I am fully committed to raising awareness about the rights of a child and will do my best as I embark on this new journey. Come join @unicefphils and be a Champion for Children too. Hand in hand we can try and help give children a brighter future to look forward to and make this world a safer, healthy and happy place for them” posted Anne on her Instagram account.
With Anne’s popularity and large following, UNICEF believes that she will play a significant role in drawing the proper attention to issues affecting the most vulnerable, marginalized and underserved children.
