Meet UN International Goodwill Ambassador, Victoria Beckham

Meet UN International Goodwill Ambassador, Victoria Beckham 

British Fashion Designer Victoria Beckham has been appointed as UN International Goodwill Ambassador.  The mother of four was appointed by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) with a focus on women and children affected by the virus.  According to UN News Centre:
“I dream of a generation free from HIV and I know that Victoria’s support will help us to achieve this shared goal,” said Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS. “Her creativity, innovation and outreach will amplify our efforts and bring us one important step closer towards ending the AIDS epidemic.”
In her new role as an Ambassador for UNAIDS, which was announced in New York on the margins of the annual high-level debate of the UN General Assembly, Ms. Beckham will work towards ensuring that all children are born free from HIV and that children and women who are living with and affected by HIV have access to medicines and care.
“This is the beginning of an important journey for me. As a woman and a mother I have a responsibility to support other women,” said Ms. Beckham.
“I am proud and honoured to be working with UNAIDS in this new role to help to raise resources and awareness to support and empower women and children affected by HIV.”
Congratulations to her.
