JUBA, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese medical team in South Sudan provided free medical services to some 1,000 people during a four-day medical camp in northern South Sudan.
The Chinese medics said in a statement on Sunday that they visited Paloch, an oil-rich area in the northern Upper Nile region from Jan. 13-17 and conducted consultations and surgical treatment for diseases like hernia and appendicitis.
The doctors also donated medicines to the China-aided Paloch Friendship Hospital to cater to the medical needs of the community living in the oil-producing region.

The seventh batch, composed of 13 specialist doctors and two support staff are currently stationed at Juba Teaching and Referral Hospital, with routine outreach programs across the east African country. ■
