Pakistan’s UNHCR National Goodwill Ambassador
Mahira further on mentioned that “Pakistan has set an example for the world where a country has hosted refugees for the last 40 year… four decades. This is one cause because I feel so strongly about it, especially as Pakistan’s UNHCR National Goodwill Ambassador.”
She added that “It was amazing to see despite the violence that they have faced, or the conflicts that they faced, they’re resilient people, they have defied all odds and they’re hopeful. They actually are hopeful, and, from now on, all we have to do is not give up. This cause is not limited to a country and should not be limited to a country. So, I think first and foremost, there should be some sort of responsibility sharing.”
