Orlando Bloom Serves Nepal for UNICEF

Orlando Bloom Serves Nepal for UNICEF

Orlando Bloom wears flower garlands and a red “tikka” mark on his forehead (local symbols of welcome) while visiting ethnic Tharu children and women at the Sayapatri Community Organization in the village of Dibyanagar in Chitwan district, Nepal.

In his role as an international ambassador for the charity UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund), Orlando, 30, toured UNICEF-supported programs in the country’s western region November 30 – December 9, 2007, meeting with UNICEF staff, health facilitators and educators, as well as women’s and other community groups.

Nepal is still recovering from a decade-long civil war that left 13,000 people dead, hampered the delivery of basic services and restricted development of the nation. Malnutrition is the underlying cause of more than 60 per cent of child deaths in Nepal; an estimated 51 per cent of children under the age of five stunted in growth and 48 per cent considerably underweight. However, maternal mortality has significantly reduced from an estimated 539 deaths per 100,000 births in 1996 to 281 maternal deaths per 100,000 births in 2006. Child deaths are also on the decline, putting Nepal on track to reach Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 (the reduction of under-five child mortality and improved maternal health).

    I think the day Orlando goes in rehab is the day I start doing drugs.

    I think it might be a good idea for some fans and non-fans to just take a deeeep breath. Slow down.

    Observation: An actor, specifically Orlando Bloom, has not been seen or photographed in a couple weeks.

    Conclusion: He’s in rehab.

    What kind of thinking is this? What proof is there besides someone’s word on a message board? Unless I know and trust that source, I’m not automatically taking it as gospel.

    There are hundreds of possibilities here, one of which might just be that he’s been overexposed and knows it. What’s interesting is that some people are so accustomed to seeing him every 10 days or so in pap shots that when he drops off the radar for a couple of weeks, some people flip out. Orlando may need to retrain some of his fans – by getting them used to seeing him less often so they don’t worry or jump to conclusions.

    I hope he stays out of sight for another couple of weeks. He doesn’t have to put on a show for his fans, the paps, or anyone else. IMO.

    Whats wrong with ALL of you?
    Both those who accknowledged that the rehab rumour was most likely Internet flap but still proceeded to speculate about it


    Those of you who then come on here indignantly defending him and trying to make a federal case against gossip bloggers who already seem to understand its just Internet rumours…defensive hysteria doesn’t do the guy any favours.

    With sicko-fan-ts like all of you, I don’t blame the guy for wanting to disappear.
