Morobo county hospital, with collaborative support from development partners, has extended a donation of medical equipment to Yei civil hospital to foster better delivery of health services.

 

Dr. Deng Bol, the county hospital director said they have given one resuscitation table, a wheel chair, three stretchers, three ambo bags, delivery table and five mosquito nets belts with each belt containing 50 nets.

 

Dr. Deng described the donation as “friendship” between the two counties in sharing health and other services, adding that the equipment donated are not in use.

 

Different organizations such as UNICEF, USAID, AAH, UNHCR and AMREF contributed their share to Morobo hospital aiming at promoting quality and effective provision of health services.

 

“The items which were donated to Yei civil hospital are actually a friendship because Morobo and Yei are in the same state and they are neighboring counties. So I always look forward to Yei as the bigger brother to Morobo hospital,” Dr. Deng told the press in Morobo during the donation.

 

“Some of them we are not using. So we saw that it is good to make use of them in Yei hospital. They are not many but they can be a symbol of friendship,” he said.

 

On his part, county commissioner Moses Simon Soro said the donation followed excess stock that arise out of the spirit of sharing as neighbours for proper use.

 

Commissioner Simon stressed the need for the two counties and the municipality to embrace the spirit of sharing and commended the partners for donating the excess equipment.

 

“We are grateful for the people who have donated all these equipment. We should share the little we always have and this brotherhood and sisterhood should continue,” Commissioner Simon said.

 

The pre-arranged visit was represented by Yei municipal mayor 1st Lt. Santo Paul Lasuba, who congratulated Morobo county authorities, especially Commissioner Simon, adding that the donation will help reduce the gap of scarcity of health facilities.

 

“I would like to thank the authority of Morobo County, especially the commissioner, for this gift they have given us, good facilities which can help our hospital because the theatre in Yei doesn’t have anything,” he added.
