SDG 3: Good health and well-being

Garoua, Cameroun: J'ai choisi de devenir sage-femme parce que j’aime porter secours aux gens, particulièrement aux femmes enceintes et à leur bébé. J’ai déjà beaucoup d’expérience dans mon métier, avec 25 ans passés dans un centre de santé maternelle et infantile. Mais on n’a jamais fini d’apprendre. Mon volontariat dans ce domaine a ainsi renforcé mes compétences en soins obstétricaux et néonataux d’urgence. Si un volontaire des Nations Unies peut par la suite devenir staff, ce n’est pas mon objectif.

El Cairo, Egipto: Mi primer día como Voluntaria de las Naciones Unidas en Egipto fue el 1 de Marzo de 2011, once días después del derrocamiento del ex presidente egipcio Hosni Mubarak y apenas un mes más tarde del inicio de la llamada Revolución Egipcia. El trabajo era nuevo para mí, pero no el país, en el que había estado trabajando dos años y medio primero para la Oficina Comercial catalana y más tarde para el Fondo de Población de las Naciones Unidas (UNFPA).
