Popular Bangladeshi musician and actor Tahsan Khan renewed his commitment to serve as Goodwill Ambassador in Bangladesh for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. 

Having been a key advocate for refugees for years, Khan, who is popularly known as Tahsan, signed an agreement to further his work with UNHCR and refugees for two more years, said the UNHCR in Dhaka on Monday.

“It has been an honour serving as a voice promoting the humanitarian cause as the Goodwill Ambassador of UNHCR”, says Tahsan Khan. “I am happy that I will keep on working for the refugees in coming days. I hope I can make a bigger impact in raising awareness and bringing harmony between host communities and refugees through my work with UNHCR”.

Tahsan Khan has been supporting UNHCR’s advocacy and outreach activities since 2019.

“It is a great pleasure working with Tahsan, and we are honoured that he has decided to continue advocating for the plight of the Rohingya refugees”, said Johannes Van Der Klaauw, UNHCR’s Representative in Bangladesh.
