UNHCR partners with Qatari mountaineer to raise refugee cause Jan 18, 2022 0 0 12345 UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has partnered with record-setting Qatari athlete and champion of women empowerment in the Arab World and beyond, Sheikha Asma Al Thani, to raise awareness on the plight of refugees and advocate for the rights of those forced to flee due to conflict and persecution. Sheikha Asma recently climbed Antarctica’s highest peak, Mount Vinson, and completed the South Pole Ski the Last Degree Trip. She is the first Qatari woman to achieve this feat. “As a new year begins, we must not forget about the more than 84 million people who are forced to flee their homes in search of peace and hope. When I was in the freezing cold in Antarctica, I couldn’t help but think of the dangerous journeys some refugees have to take to bring their children to safety. I will continue to use my voice to make sure they are heard,” said Sheikha Asma.
