Ustinov to visit for UNICEF

OSCAR winning British actor Sir Peter Ustinov will visit Cambodia next month in his

role as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, the UN agency said.

"We have not finalized the program," a UN Children's Fund official said,

while adding that the veteran actor was expected to visit a UNICEF project in the

provinces and meet King Norodom Sihanouk and co-Premiers Prince Norodom Ranariddh

and Hun Sen.

UNICEF hopes the February 16-20 visit will help raise money for its projcts in a

country where children are vulnerable to diseases such as acute respiratory infections,

diarrhea, dengue and TB.

Sir Peter Ustinov is a veteran of stage and cinema and has appeared in more than

40 films, winning an Oscar in 1964 for his role in the film Topkapi, and a knighthood

in 1990.
