Katy Perry has been named by Britain’s Prince Charles as an ambassador of the British Asian Trust charity. Perry was announced as ambassador at the charity’s annual dinner in London.
The trust, founded by Prince Charles, is an international development charity that tackles poverty and inequality in South Asia. Perry’s appointment comes after she met the prince in Mumbai last year and learned about the British Asian Trust’s work. She will support the charity’s work to reduce child trafficking and abuse in India.
Perry said in a statement that India had “long held a special place” in her heart, adding that she was honored “to be a part of finding solutions to child trafficking.” Perry, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations’ children’s agency, UNICEF, added: “Children are vulnerable and innocent and have to be protected.”
