13-year-old Madurai girl appointed Goodwill Ambassador of UNADAP
New Delhi: In Tamil Nadu, a thirteen-year old Madurai girl Nethra has been appointed the Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Association for Development and Peace, the UNADAP.
It was in recognition of her role in feeding the poor during the COVID-19 lockdown by her father, a hairdresser by profession.
As COVID-19 count in Chennai swells every day to a new high, the Tamil Nadu government has nominated five Ministers to be part of the Field Support Team in the city. The team has been formed a few weeks back with senior IAS and IPS officials.
An order to this effect by the government says they will concentrate on the containment zone management, focused testing, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine activities in the city.
