Sir Roger Moore
“There have been reports in some Irish newspapers this week that I, Vanessa Redgrave and Liam Neeson are withdrawing our support of UNICEF. This is completely untrue.


 
Vanessa, Liam and I expressed our sadness and concern this week over the dismissal of UNICEF Ireland’s Director Malanie Verwoerd. We have all worked closely with Melanie and seen just how persuasive and motivated she is first hand, and what a brilliant advocat for improving the lives of children throughout the world she has been.
 
The news was very unexpected and sudden, and it did affect Liam going on a feld trip (as Melanie organised it and was due to accompany him) and plans for Vanessa to attend a UNICEF event in Dublin in September, which again was organised by Melanie. However, it does not mean any of us are withdrawing support to UNICEF.
 
At this critical time in the horn of Africa, UNICEF is doing so much amazing work in saving lives. The organisation and its staff are truly brilliant. When we learned one of this brilliant staff members had been dismissed without, what we considered to be, proper grounds we felt we had to speak up.
 
I would urge everyone – and in particular the good people of Ireland – to continue supporting UNICEF, as I will. ”

    Dear Sir Roger,
    I am happy to hear you are not withdrawing your support of UNICEF. Once again we are reminded that you can’t believe everything you read in news. That said, this morning I read an article in the Washington Post Newspaper about famine in the Horn of Africa. In it a Sudan born novelist says that aid efforts are unable to reach the starving because Al-Quedea linked leaders refuse to let it in, essentially letting them die. I hope this is not the case with UNICEF relief efforts. It is so sad to see such sadness befalling so many innocent people–especially children… Bless you for your dedicated support of UNICEF.

    Angela
