WHAT IS HAPPENING AT UNICEF COMMUNICATIONS?

We received comments from Miguel Silva, a journalist in Spain, challenging the appointment of Mrs. Paloma Escudero to the post of Director of Communications, UNICEF.

Substantively, the criticism claims she was not professionally qualified and that accomplishments by UNICEF Spain including the link with the football team of Barcelona were not hers, but were concluded by others before she took over.

As a forum, we are open to produce any comment on it, particularly from UNICEF Communications, or Mrs. Escudero, and we welcome their response.
