About Mr. Saharat Sangkapricha
Mr. Saharat Sangkapricha, singer, actor and high-profile supporter of UNHCR, has been unwavering in his commitment to raise funds and awareness for refugees since 2016. He initiated a fundraising campaign, “Namjai for Refugees”, a local campaign to support and provide protection and rebuild the lives of refugees in Thailand and around the world.
“Namjai for Refugees” campaign organized by UNHCR recognizes the generosity of Thai people towards refugees in Thailand over the years while calling for all sectors of society—individuals, the government, private sector and the media—to strengthen the culture of generosity and rebuild the lives of those less fortunate.
In 2017, in support of the “Namjai for Refugees” campaign, Kong Saharat Sangkapricha collaborated with his friends; Jennifer Kim, Potato Band, Wan Thanakrit, Golf Benjaphon and NUVO Band to organize a concert to raise funds for refugees. The event was named Friend to Friends Kong Saharat and Friends Charity Concert for UNHCR.
Saharat “Kong” Sangkapricha states, “Since I was young, I have dreamed of being a singer and musician. It would be unbearable if I couldn’t fulfil my dreams. Many refugees have talents and dreams of becoming singers, doctors or teachers. I would like to use my skills to mobilize support and help refugees reach their full potential.”
