OLIVIA has been a committed supporter of Unicef UK since 2015, helping to raise awareness and funds for Unicef’s work supporting children and families around the world.

She has supported campaigns for children affected by conflict in Syria, as well as leading many successful appeals, more recently for the children of Yemen and as part of Soccer Aid for Unicef in 2019, the same year she became an official Unicef UK Ambassador.

During this time, Olivia has also visited schools in the UK to highlight the work Unicef is doing to create safe and inspiring places for children to learn.

Sacha Deshmukh, Executive Director of Unicef UK said:

“Over the past five years, Olivia has shown an incredible dedication to children around the world, demonstrating an ongoing passion to support Unicef’s work addressing the needs of the world’s most vulnerable children and young people. I am thrilled that as Unicef UK’s President Olivia will be able to be an even more powerful voice on behalf of children around the world at a time when Unicef’s work is more important than ever.”

Olivia Colman said:

“I feel honoured to be taking on this role at Unicef UK, a charity I am so committed to and passionate about. The scale of the work Unicef delivers never ceases to impress me: supplying vital medical equipment, supporting health, water, education and social services for children around the world. I can think of nothing more important than keeping children healthy and happy, something which is even more important now that children’s lives are being impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Ultimately Unicef provides hope as we seek to protect children now and build a better future together and I am excited to be part of that.”

Olivia will take up her appointment as President of Unicef UK with immediate effect.

Olivia Colman has thrown her support behind a Unicef UK campaign aimed at supporting children through the coronavirus pandemic.

The Oscar-winning actress will read a story for a summer fiction issue of British Esquire magazine, which is raising money for Unicef UK’s Save Generation Covid appeal.

Actress Claire Foy, actor David Harewood and writer Will Self are also supporting the campaign.

Colman, who will read That’s Where I’ll Find You by Andrew O’Hagan, said: “After five years of working with Unicef UK, I have seen how small donations can make a really big difference for children.

“The coronavirus pandemic has upended the lives of children in the UK and abroad, and threatens children already weakened by war, disease, hunger and poverty, whose very survival depends on health care, life-saving food, clean water and medical supplies.

“Now more than ever, they need our support.

“This crisis is the biggest issue for children since World War Two, and I am proud to be supporting Save Generation Covid, to ensure children can thrive beyond the crisis.”

The Save Generation Covid appeal is supporting children and their families who have been affected by coronavirus around the world.

Andrew O’Hagan, Unicef UK ambassador and Esquire editor-at-large, said: “Where there is no clean water, and no soap, a vulnerable child is more likely to be infected with coronavirus.

“In all my years of working with Unicef UK, this has been our single biggest appeal.

“Children need you right now. I am proud to be backing this simple message.”
