Silvia Illescas, our UN Volunteer from Nicaragua, shares her experiences of working for World Health Organization in Lao PDR
Vientiane, 21 June 2018
My journey as a UN volunteer started when I arrived in Laos in May 2016. The idea of me moving to a small developing country in Southeast Asia to help the World Health Organization fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria was not exactly shocking to my friends. They had seen me volunteer for various projects in Nicaragua before.
