Building roads, empowering young people and contributing to peace and development efforts: these are just some of the duties performed by more than 200 international and local volunteers working with the UN in Sudan.

Roughly half of these UN Volunteers are serving at the joint African Union-UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID), in areas such as human rights, child protection and community stabilization.

However, whether from around the country or around the world, they face numerous challenges in doing their jobs, such as cultural barriers, extreme weather conditions and insecurity.

On the occasion of International Volunteer Day, celebrated on 5 December, Setyo Budi spoke to Stuart J. Moran, the Mission's UNV Programme Manager in Darfur.
