      This time in our series #beingFHML: Simone Doreleijers, FHML junior researcher specialised in Health Equity ánd international fashion model walking exclusive shows for the famous French company Givenchy. It seems a striking contrast combining these two diverse jobs, but there are certainly connections, such as the relevance of living healthy, the international character and travelling.

    • As an intern at the World Health Organization, there are plenty of opportunities to get to know more about other United Nations institutions. Today, I joined a tour of the UNICEF warehouse which is very close to my office. It was really interesting to see how the different products (vitamines, malaria prophylaxis, education toolkits, dignity and sanitary toolkits etc) are packaged and then sent off to countries all over the world 🌎 below you can see the school-in-a-box which is a kit containing different supplies such as books, chalk, blackboard and more which allows teachers to set up a school and teach children basically everywhere ✏️
