Jemima Khan became a Unicef UK Ambassador in September 2001 and has been passionately campaigning for children and children's rights ever since.

Jemima travelled with Unicef to Pakistan to see our emergency relief operations following the 2006 earthquake, and again in 2009 to see Unicef’s child friendly spaces set up in camps for people escaping the violence in the Swat valley.

An active supporter of Unicef's campaigns, Jemima visited Romania where she met girls affected by trafficking as part of our End Child Exploitation campaign, and Kenya where she met children affected by HIV and AIDS for Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS.

Jemima continues to support Unicef's work in emergencies, specifically the floods in Pakistan, through authoring articles to promote Unicef's relief efforts.

Jemima is also a committed fundraiser for Unicef, whose events have provided vital funds for our work for children for various programmes around the globe.
