MOZAMBIQUE: UNICEF ambassador moved by AIDS orphans

[This report does not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations]

JOHANNESBURG, 31 August (PLUSNEWS) - Liam Neeson, Irish actor and UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) ambassador, pledged this week to draw attention to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Mozambique.

Neeson recently returned from his first field visit as a UNICEF ambassador and said he was determined to do everything he could to help UNICEF ensure that the impact of the pandemic on children was minimised.

The Belfast Telegraph quoted Neeson as saying, "In many cases, there were three children and their mothers to a bed, some of the children crying in pain and hunger, others too sick to move. We have to do more ... I am determined, with UNICEF, to do this."
