Supermodel and businesswoman Claudia Schiffer has been supporting Unicef since 1997.

In 2000, Claudia travelled to Bangladesh to take part in Unicef’s International Immunisation Day and raise vital awareness of the importance of vaccination. During the trip Claudia followed the journey made by Unicef polio vaccines and vaccination teams across Bangladesh’s most rural villages.

Following the trip, Claudia supported our Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS campaign and went on to promote The Gift, raising awareness of Unicef’s call for effective action to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

Claudia continues to support the invaluable fundraising efforts of our corporate partners. Most recently she recorded a voiceover in English, German and French to be played on every one of EasyJet’s 1,200 daily flights, appealing for donations to Unicef’s immunisation programmes for children. The partnership raised over £800,000 in just six months!
