Ryan Giggs became an Ambassador for UNICEF UK in August 2006, in recognition of all his support for Manchester United's 'United for UNICEF' partnership.

Over the years, Ryan has seen first hand the issues affecting children across the world and the impact of UNICEF's work. He has fronted several TV appeals for UNICEF’s emergency work and has actively supported our campaign work. In 2008 Ryan and his Manchester United team mates have also fronted a successful and innovative AIDS awareness campaign in Sierra Leone. The following year he visited the country to learn more about the impact of HIV and AIDS on children's lives.
