Quick Impact Projects of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to assist Tambura-bound refugees

To assist the government in implementing the renewed peace deal, the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) is working incredibly hard.

"Last year, a war caused me uprooted from my village. As a result, I lost four kids, additional family members, and assets. The mother of twelve, Felimina Seberio, says.

She continued,  "I returned from the camp for internally displaced people in October to start over. However, some essential services are still lacking.
In Western Equatoria State's Kpatanayo village, she is one of the hundreds of people who have just returned to live there.

Some residents who escaped the violence are returning now that the neighborhood is calmer. However, others are still hesitant—not the least because not all necessary services are readily available.


Efforts are being made by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to assist the administration in carrying out the revised peace deal.
This includes providing all civilians with the required services.

The Quick Impact Projects program consists of low-cost initiatives that significantly improve community members' quality of life without taking much time to accomplish.

It's one method the peacekeeping mission may help. Women giving birth experience pain; some may even pass away due to complications. 

Kpatanayo is a living example of a community that benefited from one of these projects thanks to a healthcare facility that was recently turned over to the local government.

No woman will ever again have to give birth in a remote area of the woods. Rozeta Ribago, a present returnee, remarked, "This facility is going to help all of us a lot, not just pregnant mothers but our children as well."

The healthcare facility will not only improve the lives of the village's current residents but also make it more appealing for displaced people to return home and participate in the reconstruction of their communities, claims Thomas Bazawi, a Protection, Transition & Reintegration Officer working for UNMISS.

Women in labor are in pain; some have even passed away from complications. We decided to give the building of this facility top priority as a result. 

Now, we kindly request that peace and development partners take into account supplying water pumps and other essentials for the neighborhood," he stated.

The local government has promised to play its role. Nathaly Dungura, Executive Director of Tambura County, stated that they would deploy medical personnel, supply medications to the clinic, and educate displaced persons in their camps about this excellent news.

The healthcare facility was built by a local organization, United Youth Organization, with funding from the UN peacekeeping force. Within the next year or so, UNMISS plans to carry out three more Quick Impact Projects in the larger Tambura area.
