Christina Aguilera Joins UN Fight Over Hunger

After becoming a mother and parenting her son Max, Christina Aguilera says she had to do something about hunger. Deemed an ambassador against hunger by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) Friday, Aguilera hopes to champion efforts that will aid Haiti and other nations in the near future. “A child dies every 6 seconds of hunger, which is a huge statistic for me,” Aguilera told Oprah Winfrey, announcing her appointment on a special episode airing from New York City’s Radio City Music Hall Friday. “After having my own child, I just had to be a part of it and do something about it and help change that situation.” Earlier this year, Aguilera participated in “Hope For Haiti,” the celebrity telethon that raised over $60 million for the embattled nation. Beyond writing a check or singing a song, Aguilera is ready to get down in the trenches, telling Oprah “I want to check on the situation there and help to deliver food. I want to visit orphanages and schools there and try to do my part in helping.”
