A Spanish humanitarian foundation, Women for Africa, has turned over materials worth 9, 230, 87€ to the Catholic Hospital for fight against Ebola.The donation by the foundation was made possible through the instrumentality of Maria Teresa Fernandez De La Vega, former Vice President of the Spanish Government, who currently chairs the Women for Africa.The items donated include masks of various kinds, protective suits protective eyeglasses, gloves and boots.According to Juan Criado Clemente, Chargè d’Affaires of Spain in Liberia, the donation went to the Catholic Hospital because Women for Africa has a working connection with that hospital.He told the Daily Observer that though the materials went to the Catholic Hospital, other smaller clinics and health centers will still benefit as Ebola is a national concern that involves the participation of all in fight.Chargè d’Affaires Clemente said in order for the materials to reach the expected destinations, he as a representative of the Spanish Government assisted in the shipment process.He also lauded the World Food Program (WFP) for providing the trucks to transport the materials.Ebola entered Liberia from Guinea since April this year and has reportedly been spreading and claiming lives in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.The Senate recently called on the Executive to declare it as national health emergency, suggesting US$1.2 million to fight it.Since the outbreak, medical practitioners in the country have complained of lack of materials to protect them from contracting the disease as they cater to suspected patients.Some medical practitioners have reportedly died as a result of contracting the disease.The Ebola crisis, coupled with other national issues, has led to the cancellation of the regular Independence Day celebration, but with instruction from government that every Liberian should observe it in intercessory prayer to seek God’s intervention.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The United Naga Council saw a bid by the Kukis to claim the land historically belonging to the Nagas. “Calling a rebellion war is giving the impression that the conflict was in defence of a Kuki political homeland,” a council spokesperson said.“Kukis are non-indigenous recent immigrants to Manipur,” said the Naga Students’ Union, Delhi, on Wednesday, pointing out that Kukis fled powerful tribes of Burma and were given refuge by the Manipur kings in the 1840s.Sensing trouble, the Manipur government on Monday ordered the district authorities to uproot all the memorial stones. Chief Minister N. Biren Singh asked Kuki Inpi Manipur, an apex Kuki body, to refrain from actions that may create misunderstanding among different communities.“Representatives of the government were invited to the centenary celebration but we had no idea of what would be on the inscription stones,” Chief Secretary J. Suresh Babu said.Kuki leaders have said they will take a decision after discussion with all the stakeholders. A “war” with the British a century ago has reopened ethnic wounds in Manipur.Organisations of the Kuki tribal group have been celebrating the “Anglo-Kuki War” since 2017. But another group, the Nagas, have been critical of the concluding programme at C. Aisan village in Kangpokpi district scheduled on Thursday.The celebration marks the Kuki uprising against the British move to make them join the Imperial Army’s Labour Corps during World War I. The uprising was from 1917-19.Naga organisations in Manipur and Nagaland said the term “war” was distortion of history. They object to the Kukis erecting memorial stones inscribed “In defence of our ancestral land and freedom”.Also Read Manipur on high alert over tensions among some tribes

Story Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says health and wellness tourism is a growing market on which Jamaica is uniquely poised to capitalise. The Prime Minister said the UNWTO conference will offer the forum where Jamaica will be able to highlight how far it has come in the area of health and wellness and its ability to now use it as a strategic marketing tool. The Prime Minister also noted that Jamaica has a competitive edge as it relates to medical tourism, pointing to “the availability of quality professionals, the island’s strategic location, increasing diagnostic facilities, and, importantly, Government’s support to facilitate growth in this market”. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says health and wellness tourism is a growing market on which Jamaica is uniquely poised to capitalise.Addressing the official opening of the GWest Medical Centre in Fairview, Montego Bay, on November 2, Mr. Holness said the upcoming United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) conference in Montego Bay from November 27 to 29 offers the perfect opportunity for the country to showcase the world-class medical facilities and services it now has at its disposal.“The global growth in the flow of patients, health professionals and medical technology across national borders has made medical tourism a thriving sector,” Mr. Holness pointed out.“Jamaica is ideally poised for this growing market, which was valued at approximately US$20 billion in 2016. It is now estimated that it will reach approximately US$47 billion by 2021,” he added.The Prime Minister said the UNWTO conference will offer the forum where Jamaica will be able to highlight how far it has come in the area of health and wellness and its ability to now use it as a strategic marketing tool.“The conference will focus on a larger scale what GWest is in fact showcasing. It will be bringing ideas and capital together to create a valuable offering which will stimulate economic growth, job creation and profitability,” Mr. Holness said.The Prime Minister also noted that Jamaica has a competitive edge as it relates to medical tourism, pointing to “the availability of quality professionals, the island’s strategic location, increasing diagnostic facilities, and, importantly, Government’s support to facilitate growth in this market”.“Jamaica must continue to diversify and expand our tourism product in order to meet emerging market demands. Travellers today are more discerning. In some cases, due to ageing and complex health conditions, the availability of world-class health facilities is considered when making decisions to travel for vacation, business or to return home,” he pointed out.The Prime Minister, however, said that even with the best of intentions and all the best-laid plans in the world, unless the crime situation is brought under control, everything, going forward, will continue to be a challenge.“The business community here in Montego Bay is especially sensitive to this reality. I want to say to the business people that we hear your concerns, and we are doing all that we can and more to ensure that we bring the situation under control very quickly,” he added.The Prime Minister noted that with the help of the business community and other stakeholders in Montego Bay, “we are serious about effecting sustainable, positive transformation”.“Earlier this week, with unwavering support in Parliament, we were able to secure the extension of the Mount Salem Zone of Special Operations for a further 60 days,” Mr. Holness said.“This will give more space to our law-enforcement teams to continue their security work and for the Social Intervention Committee to actually start the social-intervention projects that will see to a long-lasting sustained peace in those areas where the zones are implemented,” he added.The GWest Centre was established by a group of Jamaican medical and business professionals. It is housed in a modern multipurpose commercial complex and provides a wide range of high-quality medical services in the same location.

Bethany Case with the Surfrider Foundation and co-founder of the South Bay Clean Water Movement, told reporters the park isn’t yet suitable for further development.“This area is beautiful. We would love to have a campground here — but we need to solve this problem first,” she said. “Where are you going to go to the beach, … you’re going to go to water that’s contaminated. It just doesn’t make sense.”According to Surfrider, the closest beach to the proposed campground, the Tijuana Slough Shoreline, closed for 167 days in 2017 due to poor water quality related to sewage flows that have plagued South Bay waterways for decades. The beach has closed 64 days so far this year. Case was joined at a news conference Tuesday by members of Citizens Against Sewage, San Diego County Democrats for Environmental Action and the National Border Patrol Council, as well as former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, who is running for a District 4 supervisor seat that includes much of the city of San Diego.Fletcher said the benefits of outdoor recreation in the Tijuana River Valley are negated by its condition. He called on county officials to better protect the area’s natural resources.To wash your spirit clean by enjoying our amazing beaches — you need beaches that aren’t closed by contamination and pollution,” he said. “It’s time for the county of San Diego to step up its commitment for clean water. It’s time for them to start cracking down on polluters. It’s time for them to be a leader in calling for the federal government to take action.”Campground construction is expected to begin summer 2019. Supervisor Greg Cox has long advocated for construction of the Tijuana River Valley campground. In a statement to reporters, he said county staff are conducting an environmental review of the site, and will seek a new location if it isn’t deemed suitable.In May, the Surfrider Foundation filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue the International Boundary and Water Commission, a binational agency charged with overseeing efforts to stem ongoing pollution. The foundation argued the commission hasn’t done enough to address water infrastructure that has allowed millions of gallons of sewage to flow into the United States.
