She currently works at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) as a Disability Advisor seconded by Handicap International.
This lecture will shed the light on the educational situation of children with disabilities in low and middle income countries and make linkages with the progress needed to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4.
