She visited Ethiopia last month to fulfil her duties as the UNICEF Goodwill Brand Ambassador in the child empowerment project. She met with the Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde, and served as a voice to the children of Ethiopia.
Taking into account her work, UNICEF has decided to honour her with the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award. The Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award is named after the American actor who was the first Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF.
