Sharjah – Submission of nominations to the Sharjah International Award for Refugee Advocacy and Support (SIARA) seventh edition will now be accepted until November 30, 2022, the Sharjah-based global humanitarian charity The Big Heart Foundation has announced.

The number of requests by humanitarian entities has prompted the organizers to extend the submission deadline to enable more applicants to complete the formalities for the nomination procedure. All nominations for the award should be submitted directly on the TBHF website, https://tbhf.ae/nomination/.

The annual AED500,000 award is bestowed upon an institution and individual working locally across Asia and Africa in recognition of their exceptional humanitarian contributions to alleviating the sufferings of refugees and vulnerable populations.

TBHF organizes the award in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The AED500,000 award money is a special contribution by TBHF and does not represent any share of the donations made to the foundation.

TBHF’s evaluation of nominees is based on tangible benefits and sustainable impact of humanitarian interventions, the scope of work, objectivity, and transparency in service delivery ideology. Innovative practices that boost the overall sustainability of programs and project activities, gender sensitivity in planning and implementation of projects, and demonstrable ability to address humanitarian gaps, especially in emergency situations, are some of the other criteria that are considered while finalizing the winner of SIARA.
