Our Common Language Is Hope, Love And Human Ability To Overcome Challenges- Nomzamo Mbatha Becomes UN Goodwill Ambassador

The love for humanity and the need to serve it regardless of whatever challenges she’s faced with drove Nomzamo Mbatha to dedicate a great deal of time to promote life. Recognizing her excellent work to further help better earth and its people, the United Nations have bestowed on her, goodwill Ambassadorship. Mbatha who was born on the 13th of July, 1990 in Kwa-Mashu, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa is a South African actress and television personality. Starting out as a high profile supporter for United Nation High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2017, Mobatha worked closely with the organization and served as an advocate for the LuQuLuQu campaign. The campaign which drew on Africa’s Ubuntu spirit of sharing was targetted at raising awareness for the forcibly displaced people in Africa. During that period of service, the 28-year-old actress revealed that her deep attachments to refugees stemmed from her personal life story of overcoming adversity. Having served well in that capacity, Mbatha expresses delight at the new course she would be charting. She said that: “The strength of refugees, their ability to persevere and their ingenuity for making the best of a difficult situation is what I celebrate. Being named a Goodwill Ambassador is an incredible honour and I can’t wait to embark on this journey, learn more and use my voice to truly be an agent of change,”. Pleased with her appointment, UNHCR High commissioner, Filippo Grandi revealed that: “She has shown tireless commitment to shining a light on refugee situations across Africa and I look forward to seeing her inspire many more people in this new role.” It is with no doubt that Mbatha would be of great help in her new role as her appointment arrived at a time when war, conflict and persecution have forced over 68 million people to flee their homes. This was revealed to be the highest level of displacement ever recorded. Over 25 million of these are refugees, with Sub-Saharan Africa hosting over 31 per cent of the global refugee population. Mbatha’s appointment truly brings to mind the words of Mahatma Gandhi which says that: “The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems”. Mbatha’s little drop will make a great impact in the ocean of things! Photo Credit: Getty
