Youth
icon
and
Bollywood
star
Ayushmann
Khurrana
is
a
thought-leader
who
is
aiming
to
bring
constructive,
positive
changes
in
society
with
his
progressive,
conversation
starting
entertainers.
Ayushmann,
voted
as
one
of
the
most
influential
people
of
the
world
by
TIME
Magazine,
has
been
recently
appointed
as
UNICEF’s
Celebrity
Advocate
for
their
global
campaign
EVAC
(Ending
Violence
Against
Children).
On
World
Children’s
Day
also
knows
as
Child
Right’s
Day,
Ayushmann
reveals
that
the
health
crisis
that
happened
during
the
pandemic
has
turned
into
an
acute
humanitarian
and
child
rights
crisis
now.

Ayushmann
pledges
to
constantly
work
towards
protecting
child
rights.
He
says,
“We
have
seen
that
the
pandemic
that
started
as
a
health
crisis
has
turned
into
an
acute
humanitarian
and
child
rights
crisis.
Children
are
affected
in
many
ways,
directly
and
indirectly,
such
as
losing
out
on
their
physical
and
mental
well-being,
learning,
social
interactions,
nutrition.
Many
lost
their
parents
as
well.
We
have
children
not
only
living
an
emotional
tragedy,
they
are
also
at
high
risk
of
neglect,
abuse
and
exploitation.”

He
adds,
“Let’s
pledge
this
World
Children’s
Day
to
give
back
to
all
children
their
childhood
and
their
future,
impacted
due
to
the
pandemic.
COVID-19
has
changed
the
way
many
of
us
will
live
and
work.
Let’s
reimagine
and
take
action
so
that
all
children
are
protected
from
all
manner
of
abuse;
that
they
can
safely
go
back
to
school
and
learn
and
are
mentally
and
physically
healthy.”

Having
been
the
EVAC
Celebrity
Advocate
for
over
a
year
now,
Ayushmann
has
a
few
suggestions
in
this
regard.
He
says,
“UNICEF
advocates
for
the
rights
of
every
child,
everywhere.
These
rights
are
interlinked

For
example,
only
when
children
are
healthy
can
they
attend
school
regularly.
And
only
when
the
child
attends
school,
will
he/she
escape
from
child
labour
or
child
marriage.
They
are
also
indivisible:
is
not
enough
for
a
child
to
have
the
right
to
education
but
not
of
protection.
Or
having
access
to
health
care
but
not
to
nutrition.”

The
versatile
star
adds,
“The
Convention
on
the
Rights
of
the
Child
that
lays
down
these
rights
was
adopted
by
the
UN
General
Assembly
in
1989
on
this
day,
which
we
observe
as
World
Children’s
Day.
While
there
is
progress
on
many
fronts,
we
know
that
many
children
are
still
deprived
of
their
rights.
We
need
to
build
awareness
and
reach
hearts
and
minds
of
people
to
bring
about
change.”

He
further
states,
“As
a
UNICEF
Celebrity
Advocate,
I
would
like
to
continue
taking
every
opportunity
to
reach
out
to
the
widest
audiences
possible
to
create
awareness
on
these
rights,
so
that
any
single
child,
girl
or
boy,
regardless
caste,
social
background,
economic
situation
can
have
access
to
their
rights.
Because
it
THEIR
right.”
