Queen Noor Raises Awareness for Pakistan Flood
Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan hosted on November 15th, 2010 the event: “Pakistan: Hopes Submerged, Resilience Remains” at the Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association in New York. The reception, organized by Refugees International, raised awareness for Pakistan, a country which lives a crisis after the devastating floods that started in August.
Queen Noor, who is a board member of Refugee International, called for more support for Pakistan and she said during her intervention: “In late July of this year, torrential rains caused flash floods that tore through the Swat Valley killing more that 1,000 people and ripping away homes, buildings, roads and bridges. Thousands have been left homeless”.
Also attended the event Lord Mark Malloch Brown, the actor, Matt Dillon, and Refugees International’s Climate Displacement Program Manager, Alice Thomas.Jordan
