Bangladeshi peacekeepers give medical care to over 300 people in South Sudan
Bangladeshi peacekeepers in South Sudan have recently set up a special one-day clinic at a village in Wau – to provide medical aid to more than 300 local residents. A report from the UN Mission in South Sudan, published by ReliefWeb on Wednesday, disclosed the matter. Bangladeshi peacekeepers serving with the United Nations Mission provided care for more than 300 local residents during the one-day clinic – treating patients with conditions such as malaria, typhoid, diarrhoea and persistent coughs, the report reveals. Bangladesh battalion commanding officer in Wau, Colonel Reazur Rahman, said the free medical services are “a gesture of goodwill by the peacekeepers to the local population,” provided in addition to duties devoted to protecting civilians. Reazur said: “I see that there is a huge response from the local people,” he said. “We treated more than 300 people and the response is very good. I believe the people are happy to receive medicine and other care.” Acting director general of the Ministry of Health in Wau, Dr Christopher Paul, expressed his happiness regarding the services provided to the local people in need of medical attention and hoped for “continued support” from the peacekeepers.
