Mawlamyine, Myanmar: UNV volunteers serving in their own countries offer the UN skills and access to communities that international staff often cannot. The sheer variety of work performed in Myanmar is just one example.
There are currently nine national UNV volunteers supporting the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Myanmar. Their roles range from community field monitoring to technical assistance and community social services.
Bonn, Germany: With a million people in need of urgent aid, thousands of local volunteers are expected to play a vital role in relief efforts in Myanmar. Among those already active are 20 volunteers of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme currently in the country. They are providing expertise and organizing local volunteers to help with relief and early recovery efforts.
This group of UNV volunteers consists of 15 Myanmar nationals and five international volunteers (two Japanese nationals, one Australian, one Chinese and one Swiss).
