Posted on by

first_imgThe Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) of Liberia on Tuesday launched an emergency Ebola program response in the township of West Point under the theme, “Saving Lives and Restoring Livelihoods in West Point.”The aim of the YMCA’s project is to prevent the further spread of Ebola and address the impact of the outbreak there. It is also intended to influence communities to respond properly by taking positive actions that will prevent the further spread of the disease.Mr. E. Edward Gboe, YMCA Liberia’s national general secretary, who gave the overview, said the project, will train peer educators to support outreach activities in the community and set up emergency communication centers to provide relevant information required to promote awareness on the prevention and spread of Ebola.The project will influence and affect communities properly to respond by taking actions that will prevent the further spread of the disease and improve access to livelihoods of youth and selected vulnerable people, including female-headed households.According to him, YMCA will also hold Town hall meetings to engage community on conflict issues as a result of Ebola, while also providing livelihood support and food security for West Pointers which will include food for work, food supplies to vulnerable households within West Point and Livelihood recovery through support to 175 women and young people affected by the Ebola outbreak,  to enable them to restart income generation activities.Under the program, Mr. Gboe said, the Liberia YMCA will coordinate with the Ministry of Health and other health sector organizations, particularly Medecins Sans Frontier (MSF) to train health workers on surveillance and reporting.The YMCA Liberia’s NGS  disclosed that the program will be implemented over a period of one year from October 10, 2014 to March 31, 2015 in West Point only.During this period, 6,068 direct beneficiaries will be reached in the township, he said.Declaring the project officially open in West Point, the chairman of the Board of the Liberia-YMCA, Mr. Jonathan A. Mason, urged the West Pointers to make good use of the project.He said the YMCA is ensuring that the people of West Point live a better life.Earlier in her welcoming remarks, Mrs. Miatta Flowers, Commissioner of the township commended the YMCA for the gesture and promised that they will work along with them to implement the project.Mrs. Flowers also called on West Pointers to fully cooperate with leadership of the YMCA to ensure that project is fully implemented.The Liberia YMCA Ebola Program response is funded by Comic relief through Y-Care International based in the United Kingdom.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

3 Children with Congenital Heart Defects Undergo Surgery in Senegal

Posted on by

first_imgDr. Camanor (far left) head of the team with the kids at the Robert’s International Airport. Authorities at the Ministry of Health (MoH) through the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK) in collaboration with La Chaîn de L’espoir (The Chain of Hope) has sponsored three children that were diagnosed of congenital heart defects to undergo surgery at the Cuomo Centre for Pediatric Cardiology in Darkar, Senegal, a release from the hospital has said.La Chaîn de L’espoir (the Chain of Hope) is a French non-governmental organization, which is a network of excellence and expertise committed to providing access to child care for the poorest countries that do not have technical and human resources to treat them.The three children, who are between the ages the of 1-3 years, are Marthaline Gborhn Dwan, Ronel Desire Saygar, and Famata Jackson.According to the release, the children departed for Senegal on Saturday, October 13 for the life-saving medical heart procedures.The kids were accompanied by their mothers on a team headed by JFK Pediatrician (children doctor) and JFK Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sia Wata Camanor.The going of the children was made possible through cooperation between JFK and La Chaîn de l’Espoir.Earlier, Dr. Camanor diagnosed the kids of heart defects, but since then, they have been treated and managed at the JFK children’s ward.She said that with the help of the newly established Cuomo Centre for Pediatric Cardiology in Dakar, the kids will undergo ‘free open-heart surgery’ on Monday, October 22.“The surgery is soft but takes a couple of hours, so we have to arrive sooner to do the proper examination to confirm diagnoses and also make sure the patients are fit for such surgery,” Dr. Camanor said.She said that though the procedure is life-saving, it is a major treatment that involves risk and therefore needs proper care and attention.According to Camanor, JFK has worked with different organizations, including the HeartGift of the United States that received five kids, while the institutions they worked with helped to provide services, but did not provide plane tickets and the visas.Dr. Camanor said that because of the major challenges in the health sector, La Chaîn l’Espoir undertook an exploratory mission to Liberia and met with officials of the government, including the management of the JFK Medical Center to discuss the possibility to aid Liberian pediatric patients until the health sector is equipped to handle such cases.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

M&CC petitioning court to “set aside” ruling

Posted on by

first_imgBlocked Bel Air Park land conversionA recent High Court ruling by Justice Gino Persaud has blocked the Mayor& Councillors of the City of Georgetown (M&CC) and the Town Clerk from leasing or selling the Bel Air Park playground to a private land developer, but the M&CC has moved to have the judge overturn his January 8 decision.City Hall has stated its intention to have the playground converted into a cluster of town houses for top City officials, including Mayor Patricia Chase-Green, TownMayor Patricia Chase GreenClerk Royston King, the City Engineer and the Medical Health Officer; but Bel Air Park resident attorney-at-law Devindra Kissoon, through his attorneys Kamal Ramkarran and Nicholas Carryl, has won his bid to prevent the City from effecting its land conversion proposal.In court documents seen by this publication, Roger Yearwood, attorney for the M&CC and its Town Clerk, the second respondent, gave notice that the City would make an application on February 12 for a motion to be heard by Justice Gino Persaud to “set aside” his January 8 decision due to “default of appearance” by the respondents.According to Yearwood, the legal adviser to the council, he was on the corridors of the Supreme Court on January 8 when he was caught “unaware” after a Marshall called the matter “in a loud cry,” asking if anyone was present on behalf of the M&CC and the Town Clerk.Yearwood claimed that after he was called in to the judge’s chambers, he was informed that the Town Clerk was served twice with the notice of the case. As such, he sought an extension of time but was denied, and the court proceededTown Clerk Royston Kingwith the order to block the land from being sold or leased.Based on the attorney’s explanation, it appears that the document suddenly appeared upon his enquiry at City Hall.“After this, Mr. Yearwood contacted the Council in relation to the matter, and a copy of the proceedings was unearthed, from where it had mistakenly and inadvertently been placed and given to Mr. Yearwood,” an excerpt from the court documents highlighted.In recent days, the Mayor has come out defending the move to convert the prime piece of property, saying that nothing was done in secrecy, as the matter was discussed at the level of Council after being raised by the Investment and Development Committee.Last week the State media reported that all of the 30 City Councillors where issuedCommunities Minister Ronald Bulkanwith cease and desist orders reportedly threatening them with fines or imprisonment if the Bel Air Park land was used for purposes other than for “community purposes”.Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan, has recently criticized the takeover of the Bel Air Park land, expressing his conviction that local democratic organs should follow the rule of law, which was in reference to Justice Persaud’s order. However, the Mayor retorted and pointed out that “the Minister was interfering with the business of council,” as the Mayor was quoted as saying.The Park has reportedly been used as a playground since the 1990s, after serving a host of other purposes over the decades, including as a race horse course and airfield. It has reportedly been managed by the City from around the 1960s.last_img read more

Hart and Saugus are now in charge

Posted on by

first_img Saugus returned the favor by knocking the Indians out of the Southern Section Div. II playoffs with a 2-1 victory in the regular-season finale. The Centurions, who held Coutin without a goal, climbed into a second-place tie with Valencia. The Vikings (6-8-4, 2-2-0), who finished a half-game behind Canyon last season, can improve their bid for an eighth consecutive playoff berth with a victory over the Cowboys today at 4:45 p.m. at Canyon. Valencia was the last team to win a league title before the Cowboys’ run began, accomplishing the feat in 2001. Before that, Hart won seven consecutive league titles, sharing the crown with Saugus in 1995, the Centurions’ last championship. With a 2-0 victory Tuesday over Valencia, Saugus has the league’s longest current unbeaten streak at nine games. Hart has won 12 of 13 games, the only loss being a 4-2 setback against El Camino Real of Woodland Hills in the Dec. 29 championship game of the Indians’ tournament. “Beating Canyon was a big win for us,” Hart coach Louis Romero said. “But it’s very important for us to take it one team at a time, and the next team for us is Saugus.” Not losing hope: Canyon coach Steve Ladanyi hasn’t given up on his team’s bid to win a fifth consecutive title. He knows things must go precisely to form in the final six games for the Cowboys to have a chance at sharing the championship. “The good news is we get to play (Hart and Saugus) again, and they play each other twice,” Ladanyi said. “We need to win out and hope that they split, and then we’ll rely on coin flips (to determine playoff seeding) after that.” Canyon, which has gone 31-1-8 in Foothill play the past four years, lost to Hart and Saugus in a four-day span this season. “Right now, we have to focus on two things, and that’s winning league and making the playoffs,” Ladanyi said. “As long as we’re in the playoffs, I still think we can beat anyone they put in front us. We proved that (by beating second-ranked Buena of Ventura) in the Buena tournament.” Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 erik.boal@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The pecking order in Foothill League girls’ soccer has changed for the first time in five seasons. No longer are Hart and Saugus chasing Canyon. Instead, the Indians and Centurions are trying to keep pace with each other. Hart snapped Canyon’s 22-game league unbeaten streak Jan. 10 with a 3-2 victory. Three days later, Saugus ended a 15-match winless streak against the Cowboys with a 1-0 triumph. Although Canyon isn’t out of the running for a fifth consecutive league title, the Cowboys (9-3-3 overall, 2-2-0 Foothill) will complete the first round of play in no better than third place. Hart (17-3-0, 4-0-0) and Saugus (12-1-1, 4-0-0) square off for first place at Hart today at 3:15 p.m. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “Canyon was our biggest game, emotion-wise, but it wasn’t the game,” Saugus coach Lisa Rollo said. “Anytime we play Canyon, there’s so much hype, so to win is huge. But right now, Hart is our biggest test.” Saugus, which boasts one of the area’s toughest defenses, has given up only one goal in league play and seven in 14 games this season. The Centurions also rely on talented midfielders Betsy Kyle, Dani Morin, Courtney Moses, Erin Ortega and Amanda Terry. Hart, which has 12 shutouts in 20 games, is known for an explosive offense. The Indians have scored 87 goals, led by sophomore Sarina Coutin’s 31 and junior Brittany Clark’s 17. Coutin tied Laura Qualls’ 1997 school record for goals in a season with a pair in Tuesday’s 5-0 victory over Burbank. She has 51 goals in 43 career games. The Centurions lost only once during league competition last season, a 3-2 setback to Hart, in which Coutin scored a goal and added two assists. last_img read more

ELECTION 2014: COPE RAISES ALARM OVER THREAT TO LETTERKENNY MATERNITY SERVICES

Posted on by

first_imgFianna Fáil MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has raised alarm over the fresh threat to maternity services in the West/North West region. Pat the Cope GallagherA confidential HSE report seen by Fianna Fáil threatens the closure of up to four obstetric units in the region – Sligo General, Letterkenny General, Portiuncula and Mayo General.MEP Gallagher said, “This report confirms that the HSE and Minister for Health James Reilly are strongly considering a dramatic reduction of maternity services right across the West and North West. “All the scenarios under consideration would result in the closure of at least some obstetrician-led units in this region.“This could include dramatically downgrading the maternity units at our regional hospitals to midwife-only units, or indeed closing some units altogether.Gallagher believes the result would be a centralisation of maternity services at just two hospitals across the West and North West.In a vast geographical area, the removal of any maternity units will have a severe impact on expectant mothers. Many would be expected to travel for hours for just a regular check-up with an obstetrician.While the value of midwives in antenatal and postnatal care cannot be overestimated, in the case of emergencies it is essential that all expectant mothers have quick and easy access to a consultant.Gallagher added, “This news is causing great distress among many parents across the region.“It’s essential that the Minister for Health James Reilly steps in immediately to clarify what his plans are in relation to the future of maternity services in this region.According to Gallagher, it looks like the Government is sitting on this report until after the local and European elections. Gallagher concluded, “It is simply not good enough to play politics with such a vital front-line health service that affects hundreds of thousands of people across this region.“We need clarity from the Government now. Any attempt to strip maternity services from our regional hospitals in the West and North West must be resisted.ELECTION 2014: COPE RAISES ALARM OVER THREAT TO LETTERKENNY MATERNITY SERVICES was last modified: May 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Election 2014: MEPMaternity ServicesnewsNorth westPat The Cope GallagherPoliticslast_img read more
