(8/23/2004)

The star of more than 30 films and numerous TV series and one of a handful of Indonesian screen actors who has won both national and international accolades, Christine Hakim was named on Thursday, August 19, 2004, as an official ambassador of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). This latest appointment puts Christine in the same league with fellow ambassadors, including Robbie Williams, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman – all selected for their leading roles in their chosen fields of endeavor and their commitment to improving the welfare of children worldwide.

In announcing Christine Hakim's appointment, Steve Allen the UNICEF Representative in Indonesia cited the actresses' well-known commitment to children's welfare through a foundation operated in her name that distributes milk to malnourished children in West Java and in Aceh, and a separate fund that supports children in the development of artistic gifts. Commenting on the appointment, Mr. Allen said, "I'm sure we will make real progress with Christine's support for UNICEF."

Christine Hakim has pledge to use the prestige and access of her appointment as a UNICEF Ambassador to focus her energies on child protection, education, the prevention of child abuse and putting an end to child trafficking.

At the press conference announcing the appointment in Jakarta, Allen pointed out that nearly half of all Indonesian children do not have official birth certificates, a situation that creates numerous problems throughout their lives. These "floating children" encounter problems in obtaining health and social services.

In 2003, Christine Hakim was named by TIME Magazine (Asia Edition) as an "Asian Hero." One of the Country's most respected artists for her numerous classic film roles, she is the only Indonesian to ever serve on the jury of the Cannes Film Festival (2002). She is also the recipient of a Bintang Budaya Parama Dharma - a national cultural honor from the Republic of Indonesia and the Nikkei Asia Prize, presented by the Nikkei Shimbun newspaper in Tokyo, for her many cultural achievements.
