Actor Liam Neeson has just been announced as the newest UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. The Schindler’s List star has supported the organization since 1997 by serving as National Ambassador for UNICEF in Ireland. He will use his new role to continue to help fight against the issues that affect children.

Neeson had this to say about the appointment: “I am deeply honoured to have been asked by UNICEF to become a Goodwill Ambassador and am committed to working with UNICEF to help children overcome poverty, violence, disease and discrimination across the world.”

Most recently, Neeson was involved in UNICEF’s “Zero Campaign” in Ireland and the USA designed to educate the public about the 8 million children who do not reach their 5th birthday. The money raised goes towards UNICEF’s “child survival” program.

Neeson said about his work with UNICEF, “One of the reasons I’m proud to be associated with UNICEF is because UNICEF is working to reduce the number of children who die every day from preventable causes. It is shocking to me that in this day and age, 22,000 children are still dying every day for want of the most basic things like clean water to drink, a safe place to live or access to medicines when they are sick. I am determined to do whatever I can to help UNICEF.”

Got to love a man who works for fifteen years to help protect kids.
