Why I want to be involved
Being a refugee, fleeing your home is a tragedy and a defining experience for mankind. It is one of the humanitarian causes, which creates most controversy because of the sad paradox that too often the victims are perceived as a threat. I deeply identify with the cause. Through its experience and reach UNHCR achieves impact. I am honoured to contribute by helping as part of Switzerland for UNHCR to raise awareness and mobilise funds from the private sector.
