"We still remember traveling 1,000 bumpy kilometres by taxi bus over four days for me to start serving as a UN Volunteer"
Manitra Raoliarisoa (Madagascar) and Eun Young Jung (Republic of Korea)
Due to COVID-19, this past year has placed a tremendous burden on families and parents. We have had to deal with lockdowns, separation from loved ones, school closures and online learning, and shouldering additional responsibilities. As we mark the International Day of Families on 15 May and the Global Day of Parents on 1 June, we feature the very personal stories and coping strategies of our UN Volunteers – as partners, parents, children and more. In this article, meet Manitra and Eun Young.
