Helena Paparizou becomes first-ever UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Greece

·

Greek pop star and former winner of Eurovision, Helena Paparizou, has become the first Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Greece.

The announcement comes just in time for International Children’s Day, which is celebrated every year on November 20.

“Helena Paparizou, welcome to the UNICEF family! We’re thrilled to have you on board, helping us improve the lives of children in Greece,” UNICEF Greece said in a statement.

As ambassador, Paparizou will contribute to raising public awareness about the protection of children’s rights in Greece, while also contributing to UNICEF’s efforts to ensure a better future for every child with the implementation of targeted national programs and actions.

“It is a great honour for me and I feel a huge responsibility to become the first Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF Greece. We must put our children and youth first, where they deserve to be,” Paparizou said on Twitter after the announcement.

Paparizou joins a group of global and national Welcome Ambassadors who, together with UNICEF, defend children’s rights in every corner of the world, like Pink, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, David Beckham and Orlando Bloom.
