UN honours Pakistani peacekeepers for outstanding work in saving Bentiu, South Sudan, from floods

The United Nations has praised the role of Pakistani peacekeepers serving the United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

According to a Mission’s press release, the United Nations has decorated Pakistan’s peacekeepers with honorary helmets and awards for protecting some three hundred thousand people from floods in South Sudan.

The Pakistani Blue-Helmets “worked tirelessly” in building and maintaining dikes which kept 5,600 square kilometers of floodwaters from engulfing the Bentiu Internally Displaced Person camp, which shelters hundreds of thousands of people.

As their missions comes to an end, the Pakistani unit received a citation for outstanding performance, and 23 blue helmets were awarded the prestigious Force Commander Commendation Card.
