I started my professional journey from Saudi German Hospital (one of the largest hospitals in Middle East) as an Accountant, then in a year time I moved to ADRA Yemen where I found all my desires and dreams being fulfilled and I decided to build my professionalism with INGOs. Later in 2009, I moved to EQUAL ACCESS as Finance and Admin Officer. Again in 2010, I was called back by ADRA for the position of Chief Accountant with responsibilities of handling financial and accounting reporting for numerous Projects (Consortium DFID, YES (USAID fund), JESS, SUR PRM, SUR UNHCR, WHO, UN OCHA, IDPs, CDPR, SRP, PHY, YCPP (USAID fund), Mazarq OPD, PURSEE, ALFA (USAID fund), YALLA(USAID fund, DANIDA, SIDA, JAPAN FUND, GERMAN FUND,  FARA (USAID fund)).  In 2014, I was assigned to look after the functions of Compliance and Internal Control. In 2016, I was contracted again with new position as Finance Manager for one year contract.  Currently I am working as Head of Finance with ZOA International with Financial and Accounting leading role while handling multiple projects (WASH, HEALTH, FOOD SECURITY & LIVELYHOOD, NUTRITION) from various donors (OCHA, OFDA, UNICEF, FOCO, ECHO
