UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2004
Jackie Chan, world-famous stuntman, actor and director, has devoted much of his life to humanitarian work. In 1988, he established the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, and since then has worked tirelessly for dozens of philanthropic organizations both at home and abroad. During a visit to Cambodia in 2004, Jackie was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
As Goodwill Ambassador, Jackie is an inspiration to young people and a compelling advocate for children. On his UNICEF missions, he aims to provide hope, especially for children who face an uncertain future because of economic hardship, for those who experience discrimination related to HIV/AIDS, and for survivors of landmine injuries.
Jackie has also earned many prestigious awards and accolades for his charity and humanitarian work. He was made a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 1989 and conferred the Honorary Doctorate of Social Science by the Hong Kong Baptist University in 1996.
