Hi everyone!

A friend of mine will be participating in the paralympic games in Tokyo
2020 as a sighted guide for a visually impaired triathlete.

She's already looking for accommodation for her husband and their kid to be
there during the competitions. She's looking for a place near the olympic
area (I think it's Odaiba) but everything she can find from Spain is
insanely expensive.

Any SWYer in Juba, South Sudan?

Submitted by mustafakemal.swy25 on Mon, 2019/10/07 - 12:50am

Dear SWYers,

I hope everyone is doing well.

As a Turkish diplomat, I was posted to Juba, South Sudan and started serving my two year appointment last month.

As there is a large UN community here, I thought there might be some SWYers in this community. If there is any SWYer, I’d be happy to meet. I am keen to meet your friends living in Juba as well.

Hi SWY family!
My name is Ferron (batch 24, Canada) and I'm currently in school doing a
Master's of Occupational Therapy.

We complete fieldwork as part of the program, and I am able to coordinate
my own international placement!
During fieldwork, we shadow a practicing occupational therapist (OT) for 7
weeks. This placement will happen next year, sometime between July-October

Bula vinaka,
Nat here from SWY 21. I'm heading to Suva with our Climate Change Science
Showcase Far from Frozen. I'll be at the Suva City Library working with
local school groups, then I'll head to Penang School in Rakiraki and the
Sea Brezee Hotel Hall in Lautoka.
Would truly appreciate if you could help us promote the community open
hours with the promo posters attached.
Love to see any SWYers around for coffee or drinks.
