UNICEF: Orlando Bloom visits UNICEF programmes in Nepal
KASKI AND CHITWAN DISTRICTS, Nepal, 10 January 2008 — Another Hollywood movie star might have felt strange in a remote and impoverished area of Nepal, but actor Orlando Bloom seemed perfectly at ease.
A recent UNICEF-supported visit to Nepal took Mr. Bloom on a four-day journey to various programme sites in the western districts of Kaski and Chitwan. Accompanying Mr. Bloom on the trip were UNICEF South Asia Regional Director Dan Toole and UNICEF Representative in Nepal Gillian Mellsop. Besides touring UNICEF programmes, he visited Chitwan National Park and Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha.
