Rita Ora returns back to her native Kosovo


Award-winning singer Rita Ora has returned back to her native Kosovo on a humanitarian mission with Soccer Aid.

The 28-year-old British icon, who has been a campaigner and advocate of the global charity since 2013, surprised more than 400 children at the Activate event in the capital of Prishtina on Wednesday after arriving in the country earlier this week.

The singer's visit to the European country, which is in aid of Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2019, also saw the pop star spend time meeting young people that had been supported by UNICEF.
The British singer, who left Kosovo at the age of one, travelled to the European country to meet youths who had been helped by the charity.

Expressing her excitement she said: 'I'm so happy to be back in Kosovo and honoured to be meeting children and families supported by Unicef.

'This is my first trip with Unicef and seeing how the programmes positively impact the health and development of children drives home how important it is for us all to keep supporting Unicef.
'I can't wait to tell everyone more about the work I have seen, the people I've met and why I'm so proud to be involved in Soccer Aid for Unicef this year.'

Alongside her surprise visit, earlier during the day the singing sensation also took part in a youth empowerment session and spent time meeting young people that had been supported by UNICEF.

Rita, who rose to fame with her debut single with DJ Fresh 'Hot Right Now' in 2012, before being signed by Jay Z's Roc Nation, later shared her support of the charity on social media.
A message on her Instagram today read: 'Spending time back in Kosovo with @Unicer_UK for @SoccerAid has been so rewarding.

'Seeing how Unicef programmes positively impact the health and development of young children drives home how important it is for us all to keep supporting them.

'I can’t wait to tell you more about the work I have seen, who I have met and why I am so proud to be involved in for Unicef this year!'
The annual event attended by the singer on Wednesday aims to promote innovative initiatives developed by young people involved in the youth empowerment programme UPSHIFT.

The programme aims to help those from disadvantaged communities through a combination of training, mentorship and funding.
