Myleene joins Save the Children as ambassador

26 Jan 12

Save the Children announced today that Myleene is joining the charity as a high profile ambassador. Myleene is supporting the charity’s breakthrough campaign No Child Born to Die, aimed at saving the lives of the eight million children under five who die every year from preventable illnesses. Mum of two Myleene has spent this week in impoverished parts of Bangladesh meeting children and their families who are helped by Save the Children.

Speaking about her new role, Myleene said “Having spent the last week meeting children who are in such desperate and sad positions, I feel enormously humbled to be invited to become an ambassador for Save the Children.

“As a mother of two young children myself, I understand only too well that nothing in life is more important than the health and wellbeing of your children. I am honoured to be able to draw attention to the great work that Save the Children is doing every day to improve the lives of the most vulnerable children and their families across the world.”

Myleene joins Save the Children on the one year anniversary of No Child Born to Die, and will play an active role in the charity’s fight against the senseless waste of childrens’ lives that are lost each year to malnutrition and disease.
