SOUTH SUDAN: Rwandan Police peacekeepers donate to displaced students

The Rwanda Formed Police Unit Three (RWAFPU-3) contingent deployed in Juba under the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), on Monday, October 25, donated assorted items including scholastic materials and sanitary towels to support displaced students, who are currently in internally displaced camps.

The beneficiaries are pupils at Hope Primary School, which was established in IDP camp 3 in Juba to support the conflict-affected children.

The donations were handed over to the school and camp managements by the Rwanda FPU-3 contingent commander, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jeannette Masozera.

“Education is one of the most important things that will help you in the future, regardless of the challenges you are facing today. So, we are here today to support you in that journey,” SSP Masozera told the students during the handover of the items.

She urged them to focus on their education and refrain from any malpractices that can destroy their future.

The event to handover the items also provided a platform to sensitize the students on dangers of abusing drugs to their health and education dreams.

FPU-3 is one of the two Rwandan Police contingents deployed in South Sudan. Rwanda FPU-3 contingent of 160 officers operates in Juba while Rwanda FPU-1 of 240 officers is deployed in Malakal, Upper Nile State.
