The Red Army Foundation in Jonglei State has donated two bulls and five drums of fuel to Dr. John Garang Memorial University of Science and Technology on Saturday
Last week, the group donated two drums of fuel to Bor Civil Hospital following a report about the deteriorating situation at the hospital.
The Red Army Foundation is a national veterans’ organization that brings together the people who contributed to the country’s liberation struggle during their childhood.
Speaking to Juba Monitor, David Dut Ayuen, Jonglei State Chairperson of Red Army Foundation said their continuous assistance to public institutions was in line with their policy to deliver services to the community.
“We have donated five drums of diesel which is equivalent to 1250 liters and two big bulls as diet for the students,” Mr. Ayuen explained.
He said that the Red Army Foundation had been working hard to extend services to the citizens.
“The Red Army Foundation is the backbone of the movement and community. Whatever we do in the community is for the progress and support of our community. In case of any gap that we think is to be filled, we always step in,” Ayuen stated.
“We have learned that Dr. John Garang University was facing a lot of problems in relation to students’ welfare including fuel to run the generator. After realizing this gap, we decided to fill it,” he added.
According to him, the fuel would help the students during their night studies since they were approaching examinations.
Lueth Peter Reng, students’ representative said they were so delighted to receive the donations.
“We are overwhelmed with readiness to receive this donation from the Red Army Foundation with open hearts. It is said that a donation that you have never asked for, is always a good one,” Mr. Reng said.
He appreciated the communities for always standing with them whenever they were in need of assistance.
Mr. Reng appealed to the Red Army Foundation to continue with the good spirit and extent their support to vulnerable population across the country.
He urged the Red Army Foundation to build a study centre in memory of Late Dr John Garang De’Mabior.
