Bloom Made Unicef Ambassador

British actor ORLANDO BLOOM has been appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
The Pirates of the Caribbean star first joined forces with the non-governmental organisation in 2007 and has since worked with UNICEF officials to raise awareness about children's rights across the globe, a campaign he will continue in his new role.
He says, "I look forward to working with UNICEF as they continue to make the world a better place for children.
"UNICEF doesn't just deliver humanitarian aid, which is what they are known for all over the world; they also educate and provide tools which help women and children face challenges specific to their own lives. I responded to how UNICEF works as much as I did to the work itself. I look forward to learning more and to supporting UNICEF any way I can."
Bloom's first assignment as a Goodwill Ambassador will be to shoot a public service announcement highlighting the importance of access to clean drinking water.
He joins stars including Angelina Jolie, Selena Gomez and George Clooney in lending their backing to the various United Nations causes.
