HELP­ING THOSE IN NEED

Herald Sun - Switched On - - News -

WORK­ING on a TV drama can be a hard slog. Lucy Liu works 12 to 14-hour days and hasn’t much of a so­cial life.

How­ever, it’s im­por­tant to Liu that she finds time to work as an am­bas­sador for UNICEF.

From vis­it­ing sur­vivors of the 2005 Pak­istan earth­quake to wit­ness­ing the im­pact of HIV and AIDS on chil­dren and com­mu­ni­ties in Le­sotho, it’s clear she has strong so­cial con­science.

‘‘I work closely with UNICEF and try to travel as much as I can with them and am work­ing on a doc­u­men­tary right now about sex slav­ery in Cam­bo­dia and around the world,’’ she says. ‘‘That’s some­thing I am­pro­duc­ing and work­ing on as well.’’
