Pop star Katy Perry visited several disadvantaged communities in central Vietnam on May 25-29 in a trip to support UNICEF, for which she is a Goodwill Ambassador.
During her second visit to the country, Perry participated in various programs, from education, nutrition, health and child protection, climate change preparation, to water, sanitation and hygiene in several districts of Ninh Thuan Province.
She joined UNICEF-supported activities with disadvantaged children at various schools and child protection centers as well as with poor communities in the province.
Perry in May 2015 attended an event organized by Forbes Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City.
Ninh Thuan, home to the largest Raglai ethnic community in Vietnam, is one of the eight provinces in the country which participate in a 2012-2016 mother and child healthcare project.
The project’s total budget is US$5 billion, $4 billion of which is provided by UNICEF and the United Nations Population Fund.
