(Business in Cameroon) - The United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) has appointed its new ambassador in Cameroon, female singer Charlotte Dipanda.
“In the coming months, the new ambassador will visit UNICEF's intervention sites; visits that will enable her not only to get a feel for realities and needs of the children whose cause she is supporting but also to interact with communities,” explains the UN agency.
Charlotte, 34, who has decided to support and uphold children’s rights is, according to Unicef, one of those celebrities and influencers whose commitment can grant larger reach to the common purpose, the promotion of children's rights. “Her popularity and ability to influence can help draw the attention of the national and international community to the situation of children in Cameroon and beyond.”
“I am very honored that Unicef puts trust in me to support its actions. All children have the right to health, identity, protection... It is our responsibility to guarantee them these rights,” the Singer offers.
