Yasmin Le Bon lends support to Indian children

Thursday November 19, 2009

Showbiz beauties Yasmin Le Bon and Donna Air were among stars doing their bit for charity this week.

The stunning duo joined organiser Tanaz Dizadji at a London charity auction and helped raise over £113,000 for Pratham - an organisation which raises money for the children of India.

The NGO, whose mission is to irradicate illiteracy throughout the country, has seen it's profile rise since the release of Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire last year.

"Pratham is a fantastic charity specifically aimed at the children of India to help them to learn to read and write," says ambassador Tanaz, who recently gave up her high-powered city job to help the charity.

"I decided to do something more fulfilling with my life after taking a visit to Mumbai and seeing the squalid conditions people have to live in," she explains.

"I have no regrets at all."
