Meet Sqn Ldr Jason Neame
"During my time as a UN peacekeeper in South Sudan, I was the plans and operations officer. This meant overseeing the force protection and logistics for the 60,000 people who were in the protected camp in that area. We also provided protection for those from non-government organisations (NGOs) who were working to give aid to the civilians there.
It was a challenging but phenomenal experience. The size and complexity of the issues that the UN needs to deal with are a challenge. Trying to protect civilians and NGOs while outside forces are fighting around you was hard; but we kept going and we managed to build a brand new camp area with lot of improved supplies for that base in my first month there.
The exposure and development of being a UN peacekeeper is a skill that I'm very proud of."
