The actress served as a Unicef National Ambassador in India for ten years and was recently appointed a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador.
Durban’s celebrity makeup artist, Neil Ramautar has been appointed to handle make-up for the Quantico actress.
The May 6 inaugural event plans to bring together some of the biggest names from across the globe to leverage their support to enhance care and protection of children affected due to violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
It’s clear that Chopra is in good hands with Ramautar who almost missed his flight to Johannesburg from King Shaka International airport.

Almost missed this flight but Shiva, Christ and Allah was on our side. #makeupbyneilramautar #securethebag
Priyanka also shared a picture from Zimbabwe on her Instagram account. Going by the picture, Priyanka is seen with volunteers and other officials. The actor captioned the picture as, “It’s the end of a long day of travel from NYC to Harare but I’m not tired…. In fact, I’m energized, waiting for dawn to break so I can set out on the journey of discovery that these amazing women and men have laid out for me. Meet Team @Unicef. Their passion and compassion is contagious and their hard work and dedication evident in everything I have just seen and heard in our meeting.

Sarah Sithole or Mbuya(granny) is just 58 years old. Thomas 14(green) wants to grow up and be a driver and Luckmore 17 (stripes) wants to be a mechanic.. Mbuyas daughter left her sons (from teenage pregnancies) in her care because she got married and her husband did not want these kids. Mbuya sells vegetables to send them to school and survive. She was cooking sweet potatoes for lunch and shared them with me.. she hopes her grand sons will look after her in her old age because she has raised 5 children and 7 grandchildren.. and still has backbreaking work to do every day just to survive. Thank you for sharing your home and story with me.. 🙏🏻 @unicef #EndViolence #zimbabwe

This is Mashava, she is 11 years old.. she is the sole caretaker of 4 children..2 siblings and 2 cousins as her parents are dead and her grandmother who was their caretaker had a stroke so is bed ridden. Mashava doesn't want to go to school anymore because she feels like her dreams r not worth anything as she is a young mother to her family.. if u carefully look at her eyes you will see the blank stare of submission to what her life is and will be. So much strength and bravery. My heart broke. I don't have words. 🙏🏻 thank you #unicef for all the help you provide these children. Thank you letting me help.
