This visit brought home to me that these people are just like you and me. Children are children no matter where they are from and should be afforded the same rights: the right to protection and to a family life
Jessie Ware, High Profile Supporter
In 2015, Jessie travelled to Cameroon 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.
Jessie continues to support Unicef, particularly through her social media channels.
