The United Nations has honoured 165 officers of the Ghana Formed Police Unit (GHANFPU), who have been on United Nation Mission in Bentiu-South Sudan, for one year, with medals.

The ceremony, known as UN MEDAL DAY, is organized every year to recognize the hard work of peace-keepers who had ended their tenure and ready to return to their home countries.

A colourful parade was held on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, in the Camp of GHANFPU in Bentiu-South Sudan, where medals were awarded to deserving officers for their meritorious service to the UN.
