Just about anywhere you go in Africa, you will see UN vehicles. They perform a lot of different roles. In some countries and on borders, they act as peacekeepers. They also have several Humanitarian agencies that vary from medical care to feeding the starving to development of infrastructure like wells in villages. They always seem to be in the largest 4 wheel drive vehicles, but they need them for the many remote areas they travel to. The UN has several websites you can look at to see what activities they perform in the country you are going to visit.
