Lisbet was a child psychologist by background and she chaired the Swedish UNICEF committee from 1987 until 2000. She was a member of the United Nations committee for follow-up of the Child Convention, chairperson of the UNICEF board, New York, and a member of the expert committee set up by the organization for African unity to look into the genocide in Rwanda. She worked relenlessly for children and made a difference in so many lifes across continents and nations.
