Our Ambassadors

Children in Crossfire is honoured to have the support of our ambassadors who work with us to give vulnerable children their best start in life.

Schools Ambassador

Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Derry Girls)

Star of the hit TV series 'Derry Girls', Saoirse-Monica Jackson became Children in Crossfire's Schools Ambassador in 2021.

“I’ve been aware of Children in Crossfire’s support for impoverished children in African countries since I was a child myself. It’s inspiring to follow the positive impact a charity based in my hometown is making for so many vulnerable children in Tanzania and Ethiopia."

Ireland Ambassador

John Linehan (aka May McFettridge)

John Linehan has been a constant friend to Children in Crossfire and was named our Ireland Ambassador in 2022.

“I have been in Africa on a number of occasions, and I am always amazed at the life-changing and life-saving difference being made as a result of Children in Crossfire's work. Education and healthcare are fundamental building blocks for a good life, they ensure thousands of children are able to access both."
