Medicine Sans Frontiers aids refugees with mobile clinic

By Hou Akot Hou

Medicine Sans Frontiers (MSF), a health Non-Governmental Organization has established a mobile clinic at Wadwill Refugee Camp in Northern Bahr El Gazal State of South Sudan.

Wadwil is an area where Sudanese war escapees have been relocated last months for temporary settlement.

Peter Dut Thiep, acting Director General for NBGs ministry of health said the ministry collaborated with MSF to help the refugees and the host community to access health services.

“The MSF has supported us by establishing a mobile health facility in the refugees’ camp,” he said.

He added that the assistance came as a result of consultations with the non-governmental organization.

“We are happy for their help” Dut lauded MSF.

The Director General said they have deployed nurses in the area and the state pays the staff.

According to Dut, people in and around Wadwil should seek medication in the health facility provided by MSF.

Wadwil hosts hundreds of thousands of Sudanese refugees who fled fighting that is still raging on despite a series of brokered ceasefires agreed only in principles,

Leaders of Sudan Armed Forces under General Abdel Fattah Burhan and that of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo aka Hemedti are adamant to silence their guns.

The United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia governments have attempted to broker two humanitarian truces signed by the two factions, but all never yielded any tangible result.
