UNRCCA representatives participated in the Health's Week Events in Turkmenistan
ASHGABAT, Turkmenistan -
During the period from April 2-7, 2012 Turkmenistan marked as a Week of Health full of festivities and sport events organized by the Government of Turkmenistan on the occasion of the World Health Day. The UN country team, including UNRCCA representatives, in particular the SRSG and Head of the UNRCCA Miroslav Jenca, along with other embassies and international organizations, were actively involved in these events by participating in mini-football and table-tennis tournaments.
The UN football team (consisting of representatives of UNRCCA, UN RC Office, UNDP, UNHCR as well as UNICEF staff members) has qualified to semi-final and shared the third place along with the Turkish Embassy in a mini-football tournament involving more than ten embassies, international organizations and MFA. With only two players in reserve, which is very important in such a dynamic and exhausting game like mini-football, winning the third place can be considered as big success.
