In 2010, Nicole and I ran for the presidency of the UNFSU, she was my vice president you all know the story. Few years later she passed away in Brindisi. Nicole told me to run for the Presidency of the UNFSU and I promised her that I will run at the right time. Today, I have kept that promise and I can feel the spirit of Nicole on every aspect of this election. A Vote for Milan (Ticket # 3) is a vote for Nicole. Rest in Peace Nicole, we will continue your work to represent our UN colleagues. Lots of love, Milan Dawoh

Dear friends and colleagues,
Today is a sad day for the world and the United Nations. An Ethiopian Airlines flight which departed Addis Ababa heading to Nairobi crashed 6 minutes after its take-off, killing all 157 passengers from many nationalities, including its 8 crew members on board.
It has been confirmed that among passengers on board of the crashed aircraft were UN staff members.
According to news reports, among passengers were 32 Kenyans, 18 Canadians, 9 Ethiopians, 8 Italians, 8 Chinese, 8 Americans, 7 Britons, 7 French, 6 Egyptians, 5 Dutch, 4 Indians, 4 Slovaks, 3 Austrians, 3 Swedes, 3 Russians, 2 Moroccans, 2 Spaniards, 2 Poles, 2 Israelis, 1 each from Belgium, Indonesia, Somalia, Norway, Serbia, Togo, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sudan, Uganda, Nepal and Yemen.
The Secretary General has instructed that the flag of the United Nations be flown at half-mast on Monday, 11 March 2019, in memory of the United Nations personnel killed in the crash. All offices and duty stations will lower their flags on this occasion.
World leaders have also expressed their condolences.
For us, UN staff, it is indeed a sad day. At these very difficult times, our thoughts are with the families and friends of our UN colleagues and with the many nationals of the countries who lost citizens of theirs.
Staff Unions are working closely along the UN top Management to ensure necessary assistance is provided to families of staff who lost their lives.
May their souls rest in peace.
Amen. ... See MoreSee Less

We know that there were a significant number of UN family colleagues on this morning’s Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, many heading for tomorrow’s opening of the UN Environment Assembly. The Department of Operational Support is working to establish the full picture. Our thoughts are with the families of all affected and we will work with administration to make sure the necessary assistance is provided to them.
UPDATE: Based on TRIP and UN travel agencies, 19 staff are reported as having been on the flight. However, the number may change once the flight manifest is released. Flags will be flown at half mast tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
We share the pain of the loss. RIP.
