Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD), the national entity for economic development aid, has injected $10m (AED 37m) towards the Gudele General Hospital project in South Sudan.

The project comprises the construction of a new building that includes clinics, laboratories, operating theatres, and an intensive care unit.

The investment was revealed during a foundation stone laying ceremony of the hospital in South Sudan’s capital, Juba.

The event was attended by Salva Kiir Mayardit, president of South Sudan, James Wani Igga, vice president of South Sudan, and a delegation representing the fund, led by Khalifa Al Qubaisi, deputy director general of ADFD as well as several senior officials.

Commenting on the significance of the project, Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, director general of ADFD, said: "ADFD’s interest in healthcare projects is part of its commitment to supporting international efforts to advance the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

He added: “Poised to directly contribute to Goal Three – Good Health and Well-being, our latest financing venture in South Sudan – the Gudele General Hospital – reflects our keenness to assist governments across the globe in achieving their development priorities.”
