It’s the stories of the children that must be told and heard said Chopra, recounting her conversation with children who have been abused.

Her stardom serves as inspiration and motivation for children to believe in themselves and also assures them that there are people who care and will support them.

Chopra shares her birthday with Former President Nelson Mandela, July 18. “He walked the talk,” said Chopra “and like Mahatma Ghandi served humanity recognizing that philanthropy is not for the ego."

At a fundraising gala dinner held in Johannesburg, South Africa, UNICEF raised six hundred thousand rand. Mr Herve Ludovic De Lys, Unicef Representative in South Africa acknowledged the corporate sector for their support and engagement saying that there is growing understanding of the shift from charity to sustainability.
