Chinese peacekeepers serving in South Sudan have made significant contributions to local communities, promoting reconciliation and peace-building activities. These peacekeepers, equipped with engineering skills, have repaired supply lines, addressed water challenges, built bridges, and donated sports equipment, including footballs, pumps, socks, and skipping ropes, to the state's Women Footballers' Association. This support not only enhances sports training but also breaks cultural stereotypes about girls' participation in sports and security forces, inspiring young athletes to pursue their dreams of representing their country internationally.
