Washington, (ANI): Former Spice Girls member Geri Halliwell showed her humanistic side by launching a campaign to help women suffering from gender based violence in Nepal. As goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund, the singer is currently on a visit to the country to promote maternal health care and women's rights.
"When we empower women and take care of them, everyone benefits," Contactmusic quoted her as telling reporters in the region. The beauty met the country's Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal for support to raise awareness of violence against women in the south-west of the country. Halliwell also spoke about the dangers of domestic abuse and a lack of medical care for pregnant women.
