Thor star is backing Unicef #EmergencyLessons campaign

Actor Tom Hiddleston has released a video to promote a campaign highlighting the importance of education for children affected by emergencies.

The star of the Thor films and spy thriller The Night Manager is an ambassador for Unicef, which is running the #EmergencyLessons initiative to raise awareness about how schooling is harmed by conflict and natural disasters.
