Another week on the road to the UN70: Elyx treks from DR Congo to Belarus


13.9.2015 - Today Elyx is taking a well-deserved break in Belarus (learn more about the visit here). After learning all about the UN’s work in the country, Elyx took some time to reflect on last week’s journey.

At the beginning of the week, the UN digital ambassador spent two days in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). On the first day, Elyx visited Burundi refugees at the Lusenda refugee camp in Eastern DRC (learn more about the visit here). The next day, Elyx was honoured to meet blue helmets from the UN peacekeeping mission MONUSCO (learn more about the visit here).
