Mercato partners with UNHCR


September 6, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

UAE-based community shopping destination, Mercato partners with the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), organising donation campaigns under the themes, ‘Stand with Lebanon’ and ‘Yemen can’t wait’.

The campaign, running at Mercato and Town Centre Jumeriah, invites shoppers to meet and interact with UNHCR staff and learn more about the plight of refugees and internally displaced people in Lebanon and Yemen, while providing them with the opportunity to donate on the ground to the cause of their preference.

This awareness and fundraising campaign will allow visitors to the malls the chance to both express their solidarity with those forced to flee from their homes in search of safety and provide financial support that will help displaced families pay for their basic necessities such as rent, food and education with dignity.

As Mercato partners with UNHCR, Nisreen Boustani, PR and corporate communication manager for Mercato and Town Centre Jumeirah said, “Mercato and Town Centre Jumeirah are delighted to play a part in raising donations to support refugees through this unique initiative and we take this opportunity to urge everyone to show their solidarity with the displaced families in Yemen and Lebanon.”
