Honored to officially start my term as @Refugees Representative in Lebanon.
I will continue the work started by @UNHCRGirard & @UNHCRLebanon with all concerned to stand by refugees & Lebanese. Many challenges lie ahead, but so do opportunities.
My 1st visit to Eastern Ghouta was eye-opening where I had the opportunity to speak w/ families & hear their stories. @UNHCRinSYRIA supported repairing a bakery that serves +40,000 people as well as a school where 330 boys & girls are learning in improved classrooms. https://t.co/cQg8f2sl0b
Women and girls in #Syria are among the most vulnerable within the displaced community. Their stories inspire and humble us. We are here for them. On #WomensDay we celebrate the strength of women who are displaced. #IWD2019 https://t.co/IwZGbSQfxc
On my first mission to Homs & Hama I met with families, many have returned after yrs of their lives being uprooted and yet their eyes were full of hope.
We have a lot of work ahead of us and @UNHCRinSYRIA will continue to support the Syrian people in need. https://t.co/dpGy6nFjLy
