Children celebrated Christmas in the UN compound

More than 700 children and their family members celebrated Christmas in the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) compound on 24 December 2016.

The Federation of United Nations Staff Associations (FUNSA) and UNECA Staff Union organized the 2016 Children Christmas Play Day in which children played different games and demonstrated their talents in different competitions including drawing, circus, puppetries, music and sport activities.

At the event, the United Nations Resident Coordinator’s Office and UN Health Care Center also sensitized parents and children on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and nutrition respectively.
