UNPOL officers serving with UNMISS receive prestigious United Nations medal for their service

We are here for a common cause: to help build harmony and a better future for the people of South Sudan

JUBA, South Sudan, October 13, 2021 / APO Group / –

“Serving for peace in a multicultural organization is not easy,” says UNPOL officer Rama Lama from Nepal with a smile. “There are many challenges along the way – you have to build a team spirit with agents from different countries, languages ​​and accents can prove to be a barrier.

But we must always keep in mind that while our backgrounds may be completely disparate, we are here for a common cause: to help build harmony and a better future for the people of South Sudan. “

Today, Rama is one of 23 Nepalese UNPOL officers who have received the prestigious United Nations Medal for their service to the cause of lasting peace in the world’s youngest nation.

“I am very grateful for this opportunity to serve in United Nations peacekeeping operations,” she said. “I worked in the Integrated Operations Center, which is like the beating heart of the Police component of UNMISS. We liaise across the mission to ensure our officers are up to date with the latest information in terms of security situation or operational requirements. It was a very enriching experience for me, ”she adds.

Rama and his fellow Nepalese officers have served far from their home countries at a time when South Sudan has witnessed conflict, displacement and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.

She attributes the success of their period of service to a combination of teamwork and compassion.

“If you have a certain way of doing things and your colleague from another country believes exactly the opposite, you must be able to come to a common ground in order to be able to serve the mandate of the mission,” says Rama. “I have been confronted with these situations and I have always been able to resolve them by putting the mission first. Whatever action we take must be in the best interests of the people we are here on the ground to help.

Currently, with nearly 5,500 women and men in peacekeepers around the world, Nepal is the third largest contributor of uniformed personnel to the 12 United Nations peacekeeping missions.

At UNMISS, since its first deployment in 2011, Nepal’s engagement has grown to nearly 2,000 peacekeepers, including military observers, staff officers, two battalions, a high-level company of preparation and a formed police unit.

For Rama and 22 other medal recipients, it is a job well done in South Sudan, which resulted in the recognition of their exemplary commitment to the Charter of the United Nations and its values ​​of peace, human rights and justice for all.
