The donation was handed over by the Chinese embassy in South Sudan to government officials in the war-torn nation on Saturday.

During the occasion, the South Sudanese government also launched a Chinese-aided project worth $33 million for the modernization and expansion of the country’s main referral hospital, the Juba Teaching Hospital, and renovation of the China-funded Kiir Mayardit Women’s Hospital in Rumbek, the South Sudan Western Lakes state capital.

South Sudan’s health minister, Riek Gai Kok said the donation given by the Chinese government will support health in the grassroot level.

"We thank you for the kind donation that will help us a lot in strengthening our capacity to respond to diseases," said Kok.

The Chinese ambassador to South Sudan, He Xiangdong said Beijing is committed to helping Juba improve its public health sector by providing capacity building and financial contributions.

"This is a gift from the Chinese people to our brothers and sisters in South Sudan because we are trying to help them improve the public health sector," he said.

Since gaining independence from Sudan in 2011, China has contributed diplomatic and material support to South Sudan.

Early this year, for instance, China and South Sudan agreed to boost cooperation in the health sector by enhancing knowledge sharing, capacity building as well as hospital to hospital collaborations.

    It’s a great thank to Chinese govt indeed but on the other hand, it’s hopeless as health service personnel are killed on tribal lines & some govt officials’ mouths are now watering & widely opened to swallow it comfortably.
