Mahira said she was grateful and honoured to be a UNHCR ambassador for her country.
“Proud to be born to a motherland that has opened its arms to refugees for over 40 years,” she tweeted following the announcement.
“This is one cause because I feel so strongly about it… this is something I want to talk about… it was amazing to see despite the violence or the conflicts they faced, they’re resilient people… they have defied all odds and they’re hopeful,” she’s heard saying in the video shared along with the UN statement. “They actually are hopeful… and from now on all we have to do is not give up.”
The celebrity said the cause was not limited to one country, and there “should be some responsibility sharing.”
The UNHCR is a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.
“Mahira Khan came to the Indus Hospital to visit Nida, a cancer patient whose wish was to meet the actress. A huge thank you to Mahira for making Nida’s wish come true,” the tweet read.
“When the refugees of Makkah were welcomed by the Ansar of Medina with an open heart, the tradition of brotherhood and solidarity came alive,” Mahira said in the video.
“To this day, the nation has kept these traditions alive.”
“I am sorry to say that Mahira is not heroine stuff,” he said blatantly, adding that she is a mediocre sort of a model. “She is not a good actress and not a heroine.”
