SOS Children's Villages Reports Progress on Global Ombuds

The Austria-based international development organization for children reports on several steps toward the selection of its first Global Ombuds. In April, SOS created an Ombuds Board, chaired by Cornelia Zelter, a former Senior Conflict Resolution Officer at the UN Office of the Ombudsman and Mediation Services in New York. The organization has also appointed two Interim Global Ombuds, Judi Fairholm and Andrew Azzopardi.

The program also now includes two Regional Ombuds Magela Luksic Mage and Sambieni Bienvenu, and three National Ombuds Dona Houansou (Benin), Jotham Johnson (Sierra Leone), and María del Luján Alvarez (Uruguay). SOS expects the Global Ombuds to be appointed in July. (SOS News; SOS Ombuds.)
