Javier Hernandez named Unicef ambassador

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has been named a UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ambassador.

“When I heard that UNICEF wished to invite me to become a National Ambassador, immediately I thought: if it’s about doing something for the kids of my country, I am in,” Hernandez said at his designation ceremony.

The 23-year-old Manchester United Striker will join singer and actor Cesar Costa, appointed in 2004, and singer Julieta Venegas, appointed in 2009, in campaigning for children’s rights in Mexico on behalf of the UN body.

UNICEF said his work would particularly focus on child poverty and on children forced to leave school for work.
