Screen stars Sophia Loren and Jessica Lange have teamed up to raise awareness of children who are HIV-positive in Russia
Famous actresses Sophia Loren and Jessica Lange have both teamed up to raise people's awareness of children who are HIV-positive in Russia.
Loren and Lange, who are of UNICEF ambassadors, spoke during the Heart of Gold ceremony in Russian capital Moscow as an attempt to raise money to fund heart and brain operations for kids.
Lange said, "Nationwide, tremendous work has to be done for children, specifically for HIV positive children. They are stigmatized. They have no possibility of being adopted, or to have equal education." Loren added, "If I can do something for those in need, I'm always ready to do so."
