An initiative to help the unprivileged build a better future

Mumbai, 19 September 2022: Art be a Part, a new artists’ community conducted a fund-raising event to support UNICEF and its work for children at The Claridges situated in the heart of Lutyens’ Delhi on Friday, 9th September 2022.

Recently acknowledged by the United Nations Children’s Fund for her generous contribution to its’s programmes, philanthropist and artist Medha Nanda led the fund-raising event with the vision to create awareness about protecting the rights of children in need and other humanitarian causes. This community-based art initiative was supported by the like-minded community of the city and is believed that the therapeutic power of community will help the one in need.

Commenting on the event, Medha Nanda said, “As an artist who loves to paint and help people in need, this is my way of helping children trapped in the cycle of poverty and violence. Being an Indian I want to begin charity at home and create awareness through my art. Dedicated to improving lives, I want to encourage others to support this cause and make a difference in the lives of children and their families. This initiative is a small contribution towards making this world a better place for all.”

Welcoming the initiative Richard Beighton, Chief Resource Mobilization and Partnerships at UNICEF India said, “UNICEF relies completely on voluntary support and donations to help us protect the lives of children and their chances of realising their dreams. We are therefore grateful to have the support of champions for children like Medha Nanda, whose contribution will help us continue to give new opportunities to children across India.”

Paintings and photographs have already been committed to the movement’s inaugural fundraising effort by an international line-up of artists who have joined the cause and the initiative is planned to go a long way.
