South Sudan: Tristar donates ambulance to Health ministry


May 4, 2013 (JUBA) – Tristar group, a Dubai-based oil company operating in South Sudan, has donated an ambulance to help the Health ministry cope with emergency-related situations.

Yatta Lori Lugar, the deputy Health minister, who received the keys on behalf of his ministry last Thursday lauded Tristar for its commitment to supporting the country’s health sector.

Tristar’s initiative, he said, was a clear gesture that the oil entity was not only in the country to make money and repatriate the profits back home, but also give back to the public.

“We are very grateful for what you have done today by ensuring that you do your businesses in a healthy environment, through such support,” the deputy minister said during an occasion held at the ministers’ complex in Juba.

The ambulance, he stressed, will help not only the ministry respond to emergency cases, but will also encourage other companies operating in the country to emulate Tristar’s corporate social responsibility.

Chandrasekhar, Tristar’s Chief Operating Officer, said the oil company will continue to support government in various sectors, like health and education.

“We recently finished constructing Gabat School in Juba and another school in Juba County,” he told reporters in Juba.

Since its operations started in 2007, Tristar group has invested several projects in Sudan and South Sudan. The oil company currently operates in Uganda, Kenya, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kuwait, Pakistan and Haiti, among others.

The donation will aid South Sudan health systems which remain extremely weak, with limited facilities, poor infrastructure and insufficient personnel.

    It’s a wonderful gesture! This hospital needs more ambulances to function properly. Some money donations would be welcome to fulfill this purpose. From these money the administrator of the hospital could buy cars from jeep Dealer Westchester at a convenient price.
