AAH South Sudan Board visits Maban 

 

The Chairman of Action Africa Help International (AAH-I) Board Dr. John Tabayi and the Chairman of AAH South Sudan Board, Mr. Leonard Logo Mulukwat visited Maban County for three days from 14th to 16th June 2017. They were accompanied by Innocent Asiimwe, the Project Manager of AAH-I/UNHCR Humanitarian Logistics Project. 

 

During the visit they had the opportunity to meet key stakeholders working closely with AAH-I in Maban. They also met and interacted with AAH-I staff in Maban and visited various project sites.

 

First stop was at the Gendrassa warehouse, run by AAH-I, where core relief items and pharmaceuticals for distribution to internally displaced persons are stored. The visitors commended the good organization of the warehouse. In 2016, the AAH-I warehouses in Maban and Malakal were recognized by UNHCR as the most compliant in South Sudan.
