Ama K. Abebrese, a British-Ghanaian actress and film producer, has been named a Goodwill Ambassador for the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) of the United Nations.

Kofi Kinaata is a musician and songwriter who is one of the nine Goodwill Ambassadors revealed thus far.

These Ambassadors will serve alongside Olympic champion Sir Mo Farah, who was named IOM’s first-ever global ambassador in November.

The recently appointed Goodwill Ambassadors will dedicate their support and lend their names to promote the opportunities that come with migration and how it helps talent spread around the world.

The other seven are: Dimash Qudaibergen, Singer and Songwriter, Kazakhstan (with a regional role for Asia), Club Atletico Peñarol, Football Club, Uruguay, Nicolas Marin Benitez, Photographer, Argentina/Aruba, Paul Choy, Photographer, Mauritius, Mouctar Diakhaby, Footballer, Guinea, Dzanan Musa, Basketball Player, Bosnia, Mirela Sula, Psychologist, Journalist and Author, Albania.

“IOM Director General Amy Pope expressed her excitement to welcome these extraordinary individuals as IOM’s new Regional and National Goodwill Ambassadors.”

They are globally recognised as trailblazers and inspiration. Now, they will contribute in a different way by working with us to promote responsible migration and enhance the lives of those who are constantly on the move.

These Ambassadors were chosen after a rigorous review and evaluation procedure, and they were formally nominated by IOM representatives in their respective nations.

IOM, the premier intergovernmental organisation in the field of migration, was founded in 1951 and is dedicated to the idea that both migrants and society benefit from humane and orderly migration. In 2016, IOM became a related organisation and joined the UN system.
