“We do call the County health director in Aroyo to contact Aweil hospital for an ambulance and that is the only way we get the ambulance,” he added.

 Maker said that malaria is one the prevalent diseases which h he blamed on people sleeping without mosquito nets.

Malual disclosed that pneumonia and anemia cases among women and children are also prevalent in the area.
