According to a UN report, Pakistani peacekeepers in South Sudan played a crucial role in saving local communities from the devastating floods that hit the region in 2020. The floods, which were the worst in decades, affected over 800,000 people and destroyed homes, crops, and infrastructure.
The Pakistani peacekeepers, who are part of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), responded quickly to the crisis and worked tirelessly to provide aid and support to the affected communities. They distributed food, water, and other essential items, helped with search and rescue operations, and provided medical assistance to those in need.
In addition to their humanitarian efforts, the Pakistani peacekeepers also played an important role in restoring critical infrastructure, such as roads and bridges, which had been damaged by the floods. Their efforts helped to ensure that local communities had access to essential services and were able to begin rebuilding their lives.
The UN report praised the Pakistani peacekeepers for their professionalism and dedication, stating that their actions had a significant impact on the lives of the people they served. It also highlighted the importance of UN peacekeeping missions in providing vital assistance to communities in crisis around the world.
