United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) ambassador, Nomzamo Mbatha, was recently in South Sudan to raise awareness about the plight of refugees. She shared some heart-warming moments including a video showing her braiding a girl's hair
Brand ambassador, Nomzamo Mbatha has been woking at humanitarian missions since she was appointed as an United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC) ambassador in 2017.
Briefly.co.za learned that she recently visited South Sudan where she embarked on activities consistent with her stated role which is to "educate and influence the cause of tolerance, acceptance and unity."
Whilst in the war-torn country, Mbatha built her activities around the aim of raising awareness about the plight of refugees as a result of the five year civil war.
"5 years of civil war have resulted in a humanitarian crisis affecting 7 million people, more than half the population. Causing millions to flee for refuge and seek asylum in refugee camps," she tweeted while visiting the country.
However it wasn’t all doom and gloom. While in the African nation, videos of the brand ambassador showed that regardless of where she is in the world, sometimes it is the small moments that touch her heart.
In one video, she is seen braiding a girl's hair, while in another Nomzamo gave people a taste of her dance skills.
The hardworking South African was also honoured when she visited a school and saw her own national flags being waved along with those of South Sudan.
“Visited a school in the camp and was greeted with South African flags joined with the South Sudanese flag...” tweeted the delighted Nomzamo along with yet another video clip from her twitter account.
