Johannesburg - Multi-award winning singer, songwriter and producer, Tresor, will be announced as a High Level Influencer (HLI) for the LuQuLuQu campaign this evening at the launch event at the Four Seasons Hotel, Westcliff. The LuQuLuQu campaign is an initiative of the UN Refugee Agency.


Tresor's role as an HLI will include amongst others the advocacy of the struggles and challenges faced by refugees. Being in a unique position of having been a refugee himself, Tresor makes for the perfect UNHCR Ambassador, as this is a cause very close to his heart and he is able to truly empathies with refugees.


"Having been a refugee myself for so many years, I truly understand the struggle for simple basic life needs. To have organisations like the UNHCR on the continent is truly a blessing. I'm honoured that they have identified me as a suitable voice to advocate for refugees on the continent and I look forward to playing a role that can positively affect the lives of refugees," shares Tresor.

Tresor's announcement as a UN Ambassador, follows his recent field trip to Malawi to visit refugee camps. 

UPDATE:

The article previously stated that Tresor was annouced as UN Ambassador.

Sheila Afari Public Relations who prodvided the information retracted their initial statement saying: "the UN team have advised that in isolation, saying someone is a UN Ambassador has other connotations and is reserved for people who have done at least 2 years of service."
