Colombian singer Juanes has been supporting UNHCR since 2005, raising awareness and funds for the millions of people in his own country who have been forcibly displaced by decades of conflict. In a powerful radio appeal in 2013, he called on refugees and internally displaced people to register their children and help them to access their rights, including education and health care.
Juanes also highlights the work of UNHCR around the world, supporting key events and campaigns, including World Refugee Day and the Nansen Refugee Award where he performed live in 2011. Through his popular social media platforms, he has also inspired his fans to support our response to the crisis in Syria.
