Another corporate endorsement for actress, Stephanie Linus

Another corporate endorsement for actress, Stephanie Linus

These are no doubt harvest time for beautiful Nollywood actress, producer and director, Stephanie Linus, as the celebrated actress is hav­ing bountiful harvest this New Year, 2017. The Ngor Okpala, Imo State born actress, who was recently announced as the brand ambassador to an American Oat meal brand, has hit another major endorsement for her brand, as she has just been announced as the Regional Ma­ternal Health Ambassador for West and Central Africa by United Nations Popula­tion Fund (UNPF).
 
The Deputy Representative of UNPF (United Nation Population Fund), Dr. Eugene Kongnyuy, said Linus was chosen based on her obvious passion for women and children, coupled with the fact that she is a multiple award winning actress who is popular and loved by many.
 
At an event in Lagos to mark Interna­tional Women’s Day and unveil the am­bassador, Kongnyuy said the new ambas­sador would help to advocate maternal health, raise awareness and advance the cause of the UNPF, which include fam­ily planning, need to put an end to child marriage and teenage pregnancy.
 
He noted, however, that the West and Central Africa region has the highest re­cord of maternal deaths in the world, not­ing that more needed to be done to bring an end to the scourge.
 
In her response, Stephanie appreci­ated the organization for considering her worthy and promised to give it her best. In her words; “As a woman and mother, I believe every woman has the right to be beautiful, the right to health and the right to support her children to achieve their potential.
 
“It pleases me to know that these concerns are encapsulated in UNPF’s mandate to deliver a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.”
