When the going gets tough, the Pakistani peacekeepers based in Unity State and serving with the United Nations Mission in South Sudan aren’t ones to shy away. On 4 January, they marked their 100th day of continuous battling against some of the worst floods the state has experienced.
With the state capital Bentiu with its 200,000 residents and their support lifeline, the Rubkona airstrip, were under serious threat, the engineers from Pakistan took on the daunting task of constructing huge flood protection dikes, with hard work ongoing around the clock.
The UN peacekeepers also assisted humanitarian partners in building ramps to protect other main supply routes in the area, and have been at the disposal and service of local authorities when called upon. The engineering forces have pledged to continue to do whatever it takes, for how long it may take, to keep protecting civilian lives and livelihoods.
Their remarkable dedication and efforts have been duly and deservedly praised by several visiting delegations.Distributed by APO Group on behalf of United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
