Ahead of performing at UNHCR’s Nansen Refugee Award Ceremony in September 2014, Maher Zain travelled with UNHCR to Lebanon, the country of his birth. Maher visited UNHCR’s frontline operation to see for himself the important and urgent work that UNHCR does to support and protect Syrian refugee families.
EXCLUSIVE! Maher Zain’s first ever performance of ONE DAY written in honour of refugees all over the world and performed at UNHCR’s Nansen Refugee Award Ceremony. If Maher’s song inspires you to help support refugees then a donation to UNHCR would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
