Musician Jessie Ware has been supporting Unicef since 2014 and is a dedicated advocate for our work, with a particular focus on the global refugee and migrant crisis.
Jessie travelled to Cameroon in July 2015 to see the vital work Unicef is doing to support refugee children and their families. She visited Gado refugee camp where she met children who had fled from violence in the neighbouring Central African Republic. Violent conflict in the Central African Republic has made it one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a child with Cameroon currently hosting more than 255,000 refugees.
Later the same year Jessie performed at the annual Unicef Halloween Ball helping to raise more than £1.6 million for the children of Syria.
Most recently Jessie visited FYR Macedonia to meet refugee children and families who have fled from their homes and are currently receiving support from Unicef. On her return, Jessie wrote about her experiences for The Mirror.
