Ms. Sara Beysolow Nyanti assumed her role as UNICEF Representative in Yemen in February 2019. 

She began her development career as a Special Assistant in Liberia’s Ministry of Health; and later Director of the National AIDS Control Programme (1998-2003).

I need your support so that we can reach every child wherever they are in Yemen.
