UNHCR donates vehicle to Western Equatoria State, the third vehicle in three years
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Thursday donated a second-hand Land Cruiser to the government of Western Equatoria State in South Sudan, the third in three years.
Speaking during the handover on Thursday, UNHCR Team Leader in Western Equatoria State Issak Nur said the vehicle will support government activities in the state.
“UNCHR is going to hand over the vehicle to the governor. This vehicle is going to support any institution, and it is going to be a prerogative of the governor to assign any institution to use it used for the population of Western Equatoria State to achieve further development,” he said.
He added, “In 2019 UNCHR donated an ambulance vehicle to Yambio State Hospital, in 2020 UNCHR donate a car to Yambio Hospital again and this is the third vehicle so UNCHR will continue to support the government of Western Equatoria, together we will achieve more.”
Besides, Nur said they have constructed the Sue and Uzi bridges to ease access to markets.
Meanwhile, Western Equatoria State Governor Alfred Futuyo welcomed the donation and said the car will be handed over to a ministry that lacks one for facilitation purposes.
