The Ghana Independent Infantry Company 2 (GHANCOY 2) in collaboration with the Relief
Reintegration and Protection (RRP) of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS),
Aweil Field Office, has donated various pharmaceutical products to the Aweil Government
Hospital in Aweil, South Sudan.
The brief ceremony was held at the premises of the hospital on Friday, 19 June 2020, as part of
the Company’s Civil Military Cooperation (CIMIC) to support the hospital’s Pediatric Unit. The
Officer Commanding (OC) Lt Col Daniel Ampadu in his address said the gesture was to aid
essential health care of children especially at the onset of the rainy season coupled with its
corresponding health challenges. He added that the items would have been delivered months
earlier but international flight restrictions due to the COVID 19 pandemic delayed the gesture.
The Director of the Aweil Government Hospital Dr. Reech Matchok, who received the items on
behalf of the facility, expressed gratitude for the continued support extended to the hospital, since
the insertion of GHANCOY. He intimated that the donation was timely as the facility was faced
with challenges regarding medications and as such, the items would help to meet
the health needs of the people of Aweil. Dr Matchok added that various assistance from the
company continues to strengthen the partnership between GHANCOY and the communities in
which they operate.
GHANCOY which received the drug donation from Pharmanova Ghana and Tobinco Pharmaceutical
Company, intends to extend similar assistance to other health care facilities in the
