Roger Wright, UNICEF Representative for Iraq, says: “Janan Jabero was a brilliant engineer and had been a key part of UNICEF’s school rehabilitation programme in Iraq since 1999. His death has cost Iraq’s children a staunch advocate and we deeply mourn his loss.”
UNICEF continues to work throughout Iraq supporting basic health, education and social services. The organization’s mission is to promote and protect the rights of Iraqi children, and bring them the essentials of a better life.
For 60 years UNICEF has been the world’s leader for children, working on the ground in 156 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
