Sanjeev Bhaskar's Appeal Film for Soccer Aid for Unicef 2019

Sanjeev Bhaskar taking calls from the public at Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2019, alongside Unicef UK Ambassador Keeley Hawes and High Profile Supporter Gemma Chan

Actor Sanjeev Bhaskar became involved with UNICEF after seeing our work in Malawi as part of Soccer Aid for UNICEF in 2019

Sanjeev visited a Children’s Corner, a UNICEF assisted centre which supports vulnerable children and provides them with learning and play materials. Whilst at the Children’s Corner, Sanjeev spoke to three young boys and heard their stories and experiences of the programme

The Children’s Corner also works to build the capacity of caregivers under a mentorship programme.  Sanjeev then spoke to a child protection officer and a social worker who helped at the centre to find out first hand how UNICEF was supporting the programme.

Whilst in Malawi, Sanjeev met with a health clinic practitioner (who had been trained by UNICEF) and saw him treat children suffering with fevers. Sanjeev also spoke to Maritina, single mother of six, who was having to provide for all her children on her own. Her children were able to attend weekly a local UNICEF supported Children’s Corner centre where they could learn, play and enjoy nutritious meals.
