In this role, she led all HR-related functions and ensured compliance with evolving job-related global standards, policies, and practices.

Dedicated to raising awareness about child protection and safeguarding measures, Heba is also a Child Safeguarding Specialist. Her work with many international organisations and advocacy efforts have given her the opportunity to attend conferences and workshops around the world, including the India, Syria, Tanzania, Turkey, and United Kingdom.
