Superstar Shakira has received the German UNICEF prize for children’s rights.
Shakira supports Unicef since 2003 by running her foundations “Pies Descalzos”, “Barefoot” and ALAS (Ãmerican Latina en AcciÃ³n Solidaria).
Director of UNICEF Germany Regine Stachelhaus said: “Shakira encourages children and teenagers worldwide to be involved in fighting against violence and poverty, for a right to education and struggle with AIDS. Shakira is a world citizen and an idol for young people.”
Shakira said she feels honored and the prize is another motivation to keep on helping. Furthermore she calls the industrial nations to increase the amount of donations for education projects in developing countries.
That’s great. Shakira is such a great person. Every celebrity should use their fame and money to help the poor.
