She has also held several stints at senior level within UNHCR in Mozambique and Angola as Representative.
During her stewardship of UNHCR in Zambia and in fulfilling UNHCR’s mandate of protecting and finding durable solutions for refugees, Ms. Aylara has sustained an effective working relationship with the Government of Zambia, members of the diplomatic community, UN Agencies, non-governmental organisations and all other major stakeholders and interlocutors in the refugee programme in Zambia including the civil society.

The vast majority reside in two refugee settlements – Mayukwayuka in Western Province and Meheba in North Western Province, while others live in urban areas or are self-settled in various locations.
