Established in 1950 as a structured mechanism to provide international protection to refugees and displaced persons across the globe, The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has managed to effectively grant protection to over 65 million people who have been forced to flee their homes. The truth of the matter is that today, millions of refugees worldwide are still in dire need of assistance and protection.
UNHCR Thailand in collaboration with Phramaha Vudhijava Vajiramedhi is holding “Art Auction for Refugees” in an effort to support UNHCR’s global fundraising campaign ‘Nobody Left Outside’. The auction which features works by 25 notable Thai artists and photographers will take place between Feb. 15-19 at Life Style Hall, Siam Paragon. Proceeds will go towards funding to provide shelter for 2 million refugees across 12 countries.
