Mahira Khan shares touching moment with parents after appointment as UNHCR goodwill ambassador | Entertainment


Mahira Khan has shared the touching moment her parents received a congratulatory letter from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), after their daughter was named the first ever UNHCR National Goodwill Ambassador in Pakistan.

Mahira posted the letter on Instagram, and revealed how she felt when her parents read it. “I received the sweetest letter from UNHCR for my parents,” she wrote, “Needless to say it made me extremely emotional.”

Mahira added that her mother began to cry and her father was “smiling his biggest smile”.

“Sometimes I forget that I have been chosen to be put in the position that I am in, given the platform I have been given and the kind of love that I receive. I hope and pray that I can always uphold the responsibility.”

She signed off her message as the daughter of “Mr and Mrs Hafeez R Khan”.

Mahira after her appointment said she felt strongly about speaking up for refugees around the world. “This is something I want to talk about,” she said in a video message released by the UNHCR.
