Humanitarian Champion

Humanitarian Champions help to mobilize resources and raise funds for UNHCR.

A Humanitarian Champion is someone of influence in their own community and the wider world, including leading figures in the business world from the Middle East and North Africa region.

The honorary title is bestowed by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to recognize an individual's philanthropic work in the humanitarian field and their strong support for UNHCR. Juma Al Majid was named the first UNHCR Humanitarian Champion in March 2016.
