The band are delighted to announce that they have become artist ambassadors for international children’s charity World Vision.
World Vision works in 100 countries around the world helping children, families and their communities overcome poverty and injustice.
Elizabeth McGovern, lead singer of Sadie and the Hotheads, said:
“I’ve been truly inspired by World Vision’s work and am so excited to start telling my fans about the amazing things they are doing in some of the world’s toughest places.
“Through World Vision’s Child Sponsorship programme, I’ve started sponsoring a little girl called Jestina who lives in Sierra Leone. I love writing to her and finding out how my small contribution is making a huge difference to her and her community.
“I hope by working as a World Vision Artist Ambassador I can tell the incredible stories of children like Jestina and encourage other people to support World Vision’s work too.”
Elizabeth plans to travel to Sierra Leone later this year to meet Jestina and learn more about World Vision’s work.
By sponsoring a child with World Vision it helps ensure they and their community have access to education, clean water, food, healthcare and other essentials to allow them to develop a sustainable and better future for themselves.
Child sponsorship also helps World Vision protect children from the most serious types of abuse including early marriage, child labour and sexual exploitation.
