The Big Heart Foundation

Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi (Wife of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah) was appointed as UNHCR’s first Eminent Advocate for Refugee Children in May 2013. In this role, Sheikha Jawaher helped increase public awareness about refugees and the work of UNHCR, with a focus on children. Her previous work with charities and her fund-raising initiatives are testament to her commitment to helping relieve the suffering of people affected by war, especially women and children. After the huge success of the Big Heart Campaign during its two years, it was re-launched by Her Highness in 2015 as an independent foundation. The Big Heart Foundation currently has five funds supporting the main program areas: The Palestine Fund; Refugee Fund; The Girl Child Fund; The Ameera Fund (Global Cancer Fund); The MENA Fund.
