Olivia Colman first became involved with Unicef in 2015 when she joined our New Year’s Eve campaign encouraging people to make a resolution for children affected by the conflict in Syria.
Unicef is working tirelessly to protect Syrian children and give them hope for a happy future. We’re there in Syria and in the refugee camps, ensuring children have blankets, warm clothes and medicine. But we’re also providing longer-term support to help children, young people and families rebuild their lives. We’re providing education, psychosocial support and safe spaces for them to play and have some much-needed fun.
JOIN OLIVIA AND HELP US KEEP MORE CHILDREN SAFE THIS WINTER
Thanks to your support we can reach more children with life-saving clothes and supplies to keep them warm as they face another winter.
A donation of £35 could provide a full set of winter clothes for a Syrian child.
In October 2017 Olivia visited a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School to learn how Unicef is working with schools in the UK to help children to thrive and become responsible, active citizens. Rights Respecting Schools put in place a set of standards based on equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation to let children’s natural curiosity for the world and empathy for others flourish.
In 2016 she also fronted an appeal film for Soccer Aid and appeals for East Africa and the Refugee and Migrant Crisis.
Olivia continues to support our campaigning and fundraising work for children in danger around the world.
