Mahira Khan appointed as UNHCR goodwill ambassador

Islamabad (Web Desk): Actress Mahira Khan became a National Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).


“I feel privileged to have been chosen to serve this noble cause,” said Khan at the appointment ceremony.

Khan gained international fame and a huge following for her roles in the films ‘Raees’ and Superstar, as well as numerous roles in television.

Khan said that a majority of refugees are being hosted by developing countries, and a sense of shared responsibility has yet to be achieved. “More needs to be done to support countries and communities which host large numbers of refugees,” she said.
