Amr Obied


Between 2000 and 2005, Amr Obied was the JSI program accountant for USAID’s Healthy Mother Healthy Child program. In 2018, after working in and outside Egypt, including for Save the Children, Amr returned to JSI to help establish the Cairo office for the Strengthening Egypt’s Family Planning Program and to serve as its finance and operations director, which he did until his untimely and unexpected death. In addition to his excellent work, Amr’s colleagues were inspired by his warm smile and quick sense of humor. Amr is survived by his wife Sally and his 15-year old son Abdullah.
