Yesterday, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett attended an event in London in which she met Penny Mordaunt, Secretary of State for the Department for International Development and Matthew Rycroft, Permanent Secretary of the UK’s Department for International Development. They discussed how UK is helping refugees, specially the Rohingya people and initiatives like UK Aid, a challenge fund designed to support the UK’s commitments to achieving the Global Goals. Here are some photos.
