"In the present economic downturn, we must focus special attention on our future – the children,” President Adamkus said in his meeting with Sir Roger Moore

Friday, May 15, Vilnius - President Valdas Adamkus received Sir Roger Moore, actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

During their meeting, President Adamkus underlined that the visit of the legendary British actor to Lithuania was highly meaningful.
"In these globally difficult times, we cannot forget basic human values. We must not only speak about lending support to those in need. We must also act," Mr. Adamkus said.
President Adamkus noted that at yesterday's annual meeting of UNESCO Goodwill Ambassadors in Paris he had pointed out that in the ongoing global crisis particular attention should be placed on such areas as culture, education and science.
"In the present economic downturn, we must focus special attention on our future - the children," Mr. Adamkus said.
He stressed that UNICEF was doing great work for the benefit of children, adding that Lithuania, too, was making an all-out effort to extend a helping hand to the world's disadvantaged children. Valdas Adamkus said that the Lithuanian National Committee for UNICEF together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania and with the support of local people and businesses had carried through a number of wonderful projects in Afghanistan, Georgia and Armenia.
Roger Moore expressed his gratitude to Lithuania and the Lithuanian National Committee for UNICEF for the successful projects implemented in foreign countries.
