Events and Campaigns

Goodwill Ambassadors and supporters are some of the most recognizable public faces of UNHCR. They help to bring our organization to every corner of the world through their influence, dedication and hard work.

Acclaimed soprano Barbara Hendricks is UNHCR's only Honorary Lifetime Goodwill Ambassador. With over 10 years of experience as a Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina Jolie Pitt now serves as Special Envoy of the High Commissioner.

Many of our offices team up with national or regional celebrities for prolonged campaigns or special events. Their help in raising awareness and rallying support for the refugee cause is invaluable.
