UNHCR High Profile Supporter Kristin Davis holds Abigaelle (2), who is one of the 30 orphans living at the orphanage created by Sister Angelique Namaika, who is able to take care of the children, pay for their school fees and medical care thanks to the income of the bakery and the agricultural project. Sister Angelique Namaika, winner of the 2013 Nansen Refugee Awards, works in a remote region in the North East of the DRC with survivors of displacement and abuse by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Through her project, she has helped transform the life of more than 2000 women and girls who have been displaced and abused by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). With the money she received through the Nansen Refugee Award, she set up a bakery and agricultural projects in Dungu, benefiting more than 300 women and their families.

09 Feb Australia for UNHCR launches ‘I will’ campaign

Australia for UNHCR have launched a PR campaign titled ‘I will’ with Kite as its leading agency and featuring Sex and the City star Kristin Davis as ambassador.

‘I will’ is a pledge for Australians to support refugee women and children in crisis zones, whether it be through donations, fundraising, volunteering or even just sparking up a conversation with someone to help raise awareness, and will incorporate PR, influencer engagement, social media, lobbying and corporate partnerships.

The campaign will launch with a high profile, ticketed event in February at the Ivy Ballroom where Sex and the City star Kristin Davis will be guest speaking. CEOs and senior leaders are encouraged to purchase tickets to the event, which will be held on February 12, and look at ways in which they can support Australia for UNHCR in their organisations.

Tickets can be purchased here or alternatively, Australians can donate to UNHCR’s Democratic Republic of Congo appeal at unrefugees.org.au/Kristin
