More than sixty (60) people living in Juba orphanage center are urging the government and health partners to provide better facilities and treatment in the health center.
Last year, the Chinese medics visited the Juba Orphanage Home, which is hosting over 60 disadvantaged children, where they shared gifts and conducted medical checks on the children.
The 8th batch of the Chinese medical team in the country on Tuesday visited the children’s home to provide medical care.
Speaking to Juba Monitor over the weekend, Paulino Samuel Ladu said itching disease has caused to panic orphanage centers.
“We call upon the government and organizations supporting health sector to intervene so that the children will look better. We are grateful to the Chinese medical team because since they arrived in South Sudan, they have been visiting these children to spend time with them,” Paulino said.
She appreciated the Chinese doctors for their continued support to the children’s home since the first batch of the Chinese medical team arrived in the country in 2013.
She added that these children need more motivation so that they know that government cares for them because these children belong to the country.
Meanwhile, Wu Huaiguo, the Head of the Chinese medical team in South Sudan said they visited the center to find out the problems facing children’s homes or orphanages and to offer medical support and other relevant assistance where it is necessary.
“As we witnessed some disease occurrence in their centers, we are going to provide the medicine because we chose to visit the Center to mark the New Year 2021 to express solidarity with the orphaned children. We hope that they can have the confidence to overcome the difficulties of growing without parents and become better people in the future,” Wu said.
He added that the Chinese Medical team will continue to pay attention to these children and provide help to these children as much as possible.
