The South Korean UNIFIL contingent in south Lebanon has exceeded its peacekeeping mandate and become an integral part of the social fabric in the villages where it operates, residents benefitting from its services told The Daily Star.It has been active since the July 2007 following the passing of U.N. Resolution 1707 which formalized South Korea as the newest member of Lebanon's peacekeeping mission.Ali is one of the 70 patients that visit the clinics operated by ROKBATT on any given day. The clinics are free and were established in the center of the towns the contingent operates in. By June of this year, clinics operated by the contingent have received 80,000 patients, a remarkable number seeing as only 50,000 people reside in the five towns that the ROKBATT are stationed in.The contingent has also taken great pains to properly equip local schools with modern equipment.
