Jackie Chan’s new role

Jackie Chan has been appointed Monday goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and UN AIDS agency UNAIDS during his three-day visit to Cambodia.

"UNICEF is delighted that Jackie Chan has designed up to be a Goodwill Ambassador," said UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy.

"I will be calling upon many people to help us fight against HIV/AIDS and to put an end to the senseless discrimination aimed at those who suffer from it," Chen said.

Chen joins more than 20 other global celebrities as goodwill ambassadors, reports xinhuanet.com

The actor, 50, contacted the UN after seeing a film about land mines. I always think I am so lucky. So, now it's time to give back," he told reporters on his first day in Cambodia.

During his stay, the Rush Hour star will visit children suffering from Aids and tour land mine rehabilitation centres in the region. In Cambodia, many weapons, including up to 6 million land mines, remain following the Vietnam War and three decades of civil conflict.

On Tuesday, Chan will travel to Siem Reap, home to the country's cultural icon, Angkor Wat, where he is to meet with Buddhist monks helping children and families affected by the HIV virus. He will also help explosives experts destroy a land mine. "Whatever I can do, wherever I can go. I promise you I'll do it," said the Hong Kong star.

Chan's career in Chinese-language films, and latterly Hollywood, has spanned more than 20 years.

The actor will next be seen in the forthcoming Around the World in 80 Days opposite British comedian Steve Coogan, opening in the UK in July, according to BBC.
