Prince Charles will announce that US singer Katy Perry will be an ambassador for British Asian Trust to work against child-trafficking.
Katy Perry, 38, met Prince Charles at the meeting of the supporters and advisors of the trust in Mumbai last year in November.
Katy Perry quoted in a statement, “I was impressed by their strong plan, from on-ground initiatives to fundraising, that will aim to cut child trafficking in half,”
She also added, “That is why I am especially honored to be named an ambassador for the British Asian Trust’s Children’s Protection Fund and to help shine my light on the work that the British Asian Trust will be doing in South Asia, and to be a part of finding solutions to child-trafficking.”
Katy Perry already works for the welfare of children and is a goodwill ambassador for United Nation’s International Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF).
Prince Charles will announce Perry’s appointment at the annual royal dinner of trust at London’s Banqueting House. The meeting will focus on anti-trafficking steps and plans to fight against child labor. Several British ministers and philanthropists will also attend the dinner.
The charity was created by the Prince and British Asian business leaders in 207. They aimed to fight poverty, inequality, and injustice in South Asia.
