Akobo, March 13, 2018 (SSNA) — A non-governmental organization has started its mobile medical operations in South Sudan’s remote areas where medial care is not available.

The Geneva-based Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known in its English name as Doctors Without Borders gives medical cares to people who live mostly in remote locations.

The agency said it has now began using bots and cars to transport medical supplies and doctors to areas “where no other health services exist,” adding that that many of its patients are traumatized after they witnessed their relatives get killed.

MSF disclosed in a statement that it is now building mobile clinics in seven different locations throughout former Akobo and Ulang counties and that its medical teams are able to treat at least 2,000 patients per month.
