AWARENESS: Janet Jackson Teams Up with UNICEF to Fight Hunger [Video]





Janet Jackson has signed up as the face of a new campaign for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to help raise funds for humanitarian assistance in Sahel region of West and Central Africa.

It’s unacceptable for children to die from hunger in the 21st century,” Jackson says in the PSA, which urges individuals to contribute to humanitarian assistance.

UNICEF‘s efforts — which focus on providing immediate support to children in urgent need of life-saving food, basic health services and clean water — are making a difference. The organization said that last year alone 800,000 children’s lives were saved from severe malnutrition in the Sahel region..

“We must act now to save and protect children at risk from malnutrition — not just in emergencies — but for today and forever, I commit my heart, my love, and my resources to this effort. With your help and the leadership of UNICEF, we will bring change to West and Central Africa.”
