Bollywood actress and UNICEF India Goodwill Ambassador, Sharmila Tagore, and actress and UNICEF Celebrity Advocate, Kareena Kapoor Khan, joined former BBC war correspondent and UNICEF UK Ambassador, Martin Bell OBE and UNICEF UK Deputy Executive Director, Anita Tiessen at The Ritz on Wednesday evening (20th August) for a dinner to support UNICEF’s education work for children in India. Speaking at the event, Sharmila Tagore, who is celebrating ten years as a UNICEF India Ambassador, said; “Over the last ten years, I’ve seen first-hand, the work UNICEF does to ensure that the rights of every child are realised.
