Fiji House In Sudan Upgraded

Fijian peacekeepers in Sudan are upgrading the Fiji contingent welfare centre, called the Fiji House, at the United Nations Tomping Base in Juba, South Sudan.

The centre serves as a meeting, transit and social centre for the six Republic of Fiji Military Forces officers, Fiji Police Force ranks, Fiji Corrections Service officers and the Fiji international staff deployed throughout South Sudan.

Its engineer and project Manager Major Mikaele Wara confirmed the refurbishment was funded by members of Fiji’s security forces and Fijian staff serving with the UN in Sudan.

“The Fiji House is currently undergoing a much-needed facelift,” Major Wara said.

“The laying of a four course external wall partition with mesh, elevation  of the floor, installation of ceiling fans and two air conditioning units will provide our personnel and guests with comfort and also  lessen the burden on the United Nations transit facilities.”

Although two contractors had been hired for the project, members of the Fijian contingents are also assisting in the refurbishing works after their working hours.
