He said that this year, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) funded 15 hand pump boreholes, 5 spring wells and other two boreholes yet to be drilled at Lujulo and Yondu.

The project is being implemented by the South Sudanese Development Organization (SSDO).

The communities of Morobo County expressed thanks for the water and sanitation project that UNICEF is funding in the county.

UNICEF is also due to start the construction of a Maternity/Children’s ward and a drug store at the proposed Morobo County hospital site.

The commissioner called upon other development partners to join hands with in improving the health situation in the county.

He however raised concern over limited number of medical personnel at the hospital forcing many sick patients to travel long distances outside the county for medical care.

He appealed to the national and state governments to support Morobo County finish the construction of Morobo Hospital and recruit more medical personnel.

Morobo County hosts hundreds of Congolese asylum seekers and Refugees who are being accommodated at Panyume Payam sharing the same limited health facilities with the natives.

Improving and expanding the health facilities in Morobo County would save many innocent lives that could hardly access better medical care outside the county.
