Lack of Logistics Hampers LNRCS Operations

first_imgThe president of the Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) says logistical support remains a serious challenge to the Red Cross intervention to help stop further spread of the deadly Ebola virus.According to Mr. Emmanuel Kparh, vehicles, fuel and funding are some of the essential logistics needed to enhance the institutional capacity in the fight against Ebola.The LNRCS is the major organization clothed with the authority to provide humanitarian assistance as well as disaster management in the country.Mr. Kparh spoke Tuesday when the management of National Petroleum (NP) Liberia Limited donated 200-gallons of fuel to the Liberia National Red Cross Society in support of its Ebola intervention.The NP management said that the donation was its little way of buttressing government efforts through the LNRCS to contain the Ebola virus in the country and the Sub-Region. NP is a Sierra Leonean petroleum company. Sierra Leone is one of three countries in the region that is suffering the wrath of the virus.The LRC president thanked  the NP for the fuel donation, describing it as timely to help maximize the Red Cross’ output in its Ebola response activities in the affected counties.The LNRC’s current Ebola response activities are being supported by its movement partners but Mr. Kparh wants other national and international institutions as well to support the Liberian Red Cross as it intensifies efforts to help contain the Ebola virus.The Red Cross is carrying out social mobilization and awareness, contact tracing, psychosocial counseling and providing survivor kits to victims in the seven counties.  It is also now assisting the Ministry of Health in the area of dead body management of Ebola victims for Montserrado only.The LNRC has already declared August as Ebola Month after scaling down activities of other programs and projects to concentrate more on fighting the deadly Ebola Virus in Liberia.LNRC secretary general Fayiah Tamba recently told the media that as an auxiliary to government, the LNRC was prepared and ready for the Month of August to utilize every resource at its disposal to fight the disease in support of the government efforts.The Ebola virus, since its outbreak in the region, has claimed over one thousand lives with Guinea, where it originated from, being the hardest hit follow by Sierra Leone and Liberia.President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf described the outbreak in the country as a national tragedy that needs to be brought to an end. She has imposed a 90- day state of emergency which she believes will help contain the virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Caricom Chair stresses importance of regional cooperation

first_imgChairman of the Caribbean Community (Caricom), Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Allen Chastanet has commended member states for their cooperation and solidarity in both times of success and hardships, reminding of some of the achievements as well as challenges all through which the Community has continued to stand firmly. In his end-of-year statement issued on Friday, Chastanet said that Caricom exemplifies that spirit, “when we celebrate our achievements in different fields of endeavour and when we stand in solidarity with those who are faced with adverse circumstances”. In elaborating, he said that nation-states stood solidly at the side of the people of Grand Bahama and Abaco in The Bahamas as they were ravaged by Hurricane Dorian.  “It was heart-wrenching for me to witness first-hand the aftermath of that catastrophe which claimed many lives and demolished property and infrastructure. However, it was heart-lifting to see the response, as once again, the other Members of the Community, both individually and regionally, rallied to the support of a sister state in distress, under the direction of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA),” the Chastanet said.The Chairman also noted that a major challenge faced by member states – climate change— and emphasised the importance of regional and global efforts to combat devastating effects which impact the Community.“As we enjoy ourselves over the season, let us not neglect our responsibility to maintain the environment. Let us, for example, take heed of the global anti-plastic campaign which includes avoiding the use of plastic bags, single-use plastics and Styrofoam. Taking care of the environment is one element in building our resilience to mitigate the threats posed by climate change and other issues which threaten to derail our development efforts,” he stated.Further, he added that Caricom will continue to build economic resilience through its cornerstone, the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME) which will benefit all members and their nationals.He also mentioned the critical importance of Caricom strengthening certain significant aspects in order to reduce threats to the Community.“The strengthening of our internal arrangements and our actions in concert have been critical in our attempts to minimise threats to the viability of our economies and financial sector, such as those posed by blacklisting and denial of correspondent banking. The disruption to daily life and commercial transactions by those actions is a significant fetter to stability and prosperity,” he said.Chastanet also stated the importance of building and maintaining allies in the international community which would allow member states the opportunity to influence on the international stage and advance our interests.last_img read more

Man in funeral cortege caused crash after pulling into petrol station

first_imgA Fanad man traveling in a funeral cortege pulled into a filling station causing an oncoming vehicle to crash into him.The man, James Friel, pleaded guilty to charges before a recent sitting of Letterkenny District Court. Inspector Shaun Grant outlined details of the case against Mr Friel of Ballymichael, Ballylar PO arising from events on February 6, last year at Loughnakey, Milford.Judge Paul Kelly heard that on the date in question, a Ms Caroline Dorrian had been driving in the direction of Letterkenny when the head-on-collision took place with the defendant’s Peugeot Partner van.James Friel had been travelling in a cortege taking the remains of his neighbour from Letterkenny University Hospital to the wake house.He realised that his van was running out of fuel and turned right across the path of the oncoming vehicle as he attempted to enter the Applegreen service station. The incident was captured on CCTV.Solicitor for the defendant, Kieran Dillon, told the court that the incident occurred at dusk, at approximately 6.48pm and said his 35-year-old client “simply didn’t see the oncoming vehicle”.He said the father of four is a part-time farmer and stressed that matters have been resolved civilly between both insurance companies.Mr Dillon added: “This incident has caused grave concern and worry to my client who is otherwise of good character. This was a genuine mistake.”Judge Kelly noted that the defendant has no previous convictions and said it was a case of an “unfortunate accident rather than bad driving”. He proceeded to give the defendant the benefit of the Probation Act, meaning a conviction will not be recorded against him.Man in funeral cortege caused crash after pulling into petrol station was last modified: September 7th, 2018 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:crashdonegalFanadfuneral cortegeJames friellast_img read more

Football Closes Home Slate Saturday

first_img Live Audio Live Video DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University football team hosts Pioneer Football League foe Marist at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, for the final home game of the season. Prior to the game there will be a program to honor the team’s seniors for their accomplishments at Drake.Drake (5-3, 4-2 PFL) slipped out of the top two spots in the PFL last week with a 27-10 loss to first-place San Diego.
