Disney star Selena Gomez is now the United Nations Children Fund’s newest and youngest member.
Every day, 25,000 children die from preventable causes. Gomez is committed to permanently eradicating this disturbing statistic. Her first field mission included a trip to Ghana where she witnessed firsthand the plight of needy children.
Gomez joins a long list of UNICEF supporting celebrities committed to assisting the world’s vulnerable children. The Wizards of Waverly Place starlet posted her Ghana trip pictures on her Twitter page and remarked, “I’m having such a wonderful time helping and learning about this culture and life!” Selena’s dedication will, without a doubt, inspire other young people to join UNICEF’s cause and unite for children.
