Katy Perry Meets with Children & Families During UNICEF Visit to Vietnam

UNICEF goodwill ambassador Katy Perry pays a visit to the children at Quang Son Daycare Center as well as the Phuoc Thanh Commune Health Centre last week in Vietnam.

“All the children I met have incredible dreams. We have to help them fight for those dreams,” Katy said. “Investing in the most disadvantaged to give them a fair chance in life is not only the right thing to do, it is the best way to break the cycle of poverty and drastically improve children’s health, education and well-being.”

“It was heartbreaking to meet a grandmother who was left to care for four grandchildren after her daughter passed away. The family lives off a bumpy path in a remote village in the hills, and one of the grandchildren, a five-year-old named Linh, became severely malnourished. If a UNICEF-trained outreach worker had not come to the village, and made sure Linh got the care she needed, she might not be alive today,” Katy continued. “Linh is one of millions of children who face such challenges every day. That’s something we should all be worried about.”

Katy traveled to one of the poorest regions in the Vietnam, Ninh Thuan province. Watch a video about her travels below…
