In October 2002 singer Dionne Warwick, from the United States, was appointed FAO Ambassador. With her unique vocal style and her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Ms Warwick is the recipient of countless awards, having a illustrious career that spans close to 40 years and includes no less than 55 hit singles. As a philanthropist and community activist, she has generously supported many charities and social agendas.

"I am given the opportunity to make a statement about what needs to be done in the world to combat hunger and poverty," she said upon accepting her nomination as FAO Ambassador.

Since her appointment, Ms. Warwick has dedicated generous amounts of time and energy to FAO's campaign against hunger and has given several interviews to the international media, speaking extensiely about her role as an FAO Ambassador and advocate.

In November and December 2002, Dionne Warwick gave visibility to FAO during concerts organized at the Teatro Sistina and Teatro Argentina in Rome.
