Over 300,000 SSP needed to revamp burnt hospital


April 13, 2015 (BOR) – More than 300,000 South Sudanese pounds is needed to rebuild a health facility burnt in Jonglei’s Twic East county last month, an official said.

Dau Akoi, the Twic East commissioner said they needed to bring the required materials before the rainy seasons, but were still stuck due to lack of funds.

“We have no money to rebuild the hospital. If there is funding we can start bring in the materials before we are cut off from Bor by rain,” the commissioner said on Monday.

Dau said his office lacked furniture, which also needed funds.

“Even the commissioner’s office, which I was building here has not finished, furniture for the office will not be purchased due to lack of money. So we need the Twic East community from around the world to help us by contributing some money,” he said.

The only-existing hospital in the county caught fire last month as paraffin was being put into an Extended Program Immunization (EPI) fridge.

    communities of Bor Twic East county of Jonglie state may be aware to know that south sudan government lost to have money that may build a hospital , leave alone such issues of development in Jonglie state.
    the current government of Juba lost to have good economic planning that may contain financial crisis .

      Stop bothering the Diasporans you perpetual beggars. Why not just sell a few hundreds of those thousands prided cows and set up for yourselves whatever service institutions your people deem important, instead of begging for furniture money....bla..bla and still call yourself a commissioner of a certain Bor Twic East county. Self reliance should be your motto !

        Oh my friend Ambago i like that so much, look at Juba Teaching Hospital they are claiming that they have built it but nothing only and only renovation. Before he cries out they have to contribute some amount of at 150,000 ssp and then lobby for funds.
