They were acknowledged for their contribution in carrying out patrols across the region and for providing a safe and secure environment for the 2500 civilians who wanted refuge at the UN Protection of Civilians site at Bor.

They even provided services to the community outside of their core mandate such as medical care for local residents and support for local farmers with veterinary treatment for their animals.
