100 ‘Ebola Orphans’ Appeal for Support

first_imgAbout 100 “Ebola orphans, along with their guardians, yesterday gathered before the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection asking for support from the Liberia government.The orphans are presently sheltered at the Taffi Dollar Children’s Welfare Center in Disco Hill, the Roberts International Airport highway in Margibi County.Speaking to journalists, Mr. Julius S. Jarwou, Principal of Abundant Life Chapel (ALC) School, which is currently caring for the children, explained that more than 75 percent of the children, who totaled 140, were seriously affected by the Ebola virus disease and need support from the government and philanthropists, to survive.The children, who are survivors and orphans, had originally come from Dolo Town and surrounding towns within the Firestone concession area before they were housed at the welfare center. All of them had placards with different messages written on them.Joshua Karngar, one of the orphans from Dolo Town, told newsmen that he lost more than 20 members of his family, including his father, mother, aunts, uncles and siblings.Another youth, Bendu Dumbai, lost at least 13 members, including her father and mother, to the deadly virus.James Garmonyou from 72nd Community, where the Ebola case that landed in the United States originated, lost at least four members, including his father, mother and two siblings. His father had come in direct contact with the pregnant lady who was helped by Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who took the virus to the US.Mr. Jarwou, the ACL school principal said, “For the last four months, ALC has been taking care of the children affected by Ebola. We are here to appeal to the government because their guardians or caretakers have said they don’t have the means to care for the children of their relatives who lost their lives to the virus.”According to him, the government, through the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, had informed the welfare center’s director, to return the children back to their “aunties and uncles,” so that the government can send support to those homes for the children.However, Principal Jarwou further stated that the guardians of these children have told ACL they can’t take the children back because they won’t be able to provide the necessary support the orphans have already gotten used to over the last four months at the welfare center. Most guardians said they are faced with serious financial constraints.One of the grandmothers, who had come along with her grandchildren to plead with the Ministry, speaking in broken Liberian English said guardian don’t trust the government.The grandmother, who only called herself Ma Annie, said if they take their children home, the government might support them for two or three months and then stop the support but if their kids are at the ACL, they would be cared for throughout.Bendu Dumbai, who lost 13 of her family members to the deadly virus presented the children’s concerns to the Deputy Gender Minister for Administration, Mr. Peter Roberts, who came along with Mrs. Lydia Mai Sherman, Deputy for Children and Social Protection.Dep. Min. Roberts assured the children, guardians and Abundant Life Chapel (ACL) that he will ensure that their plight is addressed.From the Ministry, the orphans and their caretakers, marched up the road to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).After waiting in the sun for a while, with their placards high up in the air, asking that specialized UN organ to help address their plight, UNICEF ushered them and their guardians into the compound.The UN staff served the children cold water and soda and promised to liaise with the relevant government agency to address their plight as it doesn’t offer support to individual institutions. It can only do that when such recommendation comes from the government.Meanwhile the director of the Taffi Dollar Children’s Welfare Center, Rev. Wilmot Yarlatai, has disclosed to the Daily Observer that every penny spent over the few months on the children’s upkeep has come from his “own pocket and not someone supporting the home.”He thanked Dr. Creflo Dollar and his Creflo Dollar Ministry (CDM) in the US, for helping to construct the facilities and hoped that the CDM, too, will provide funding for the children’s upkeep in the future.Rev. Yarlatai’s clarification comes as some believe that the home and the children are being supported by Dr. Dollar in whose wife’s honor the center is named.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Vidal wants move as Juventus issue ultimatum – Man United transfer update

first_img1 It has quickly progressed from speculative interest to full-blown saga, but there appear to be glimpses of light at the end of the tunnel with Arturo Vidal’s protracted transfer to Manchester United reportedly on the way to reaching its conclusion.But what has changed? Here’s the latest…Ultimatum issuedJuventus look to be growing tired of the pantomime that is Vidal’s future and have finally put their foot down, issuing an ultimatum to the Chilean to make his mind up by August 15. According to Italian outlet La Stampa, Juve want to have enough time to recruit a replacement if necessary and are instead leaving the decision up to the player and his agent. They continue that a deal will be on their terms, suggesting at a transfer fee of €50m.Contract ‘agreed’ as talks continueThe Independent claim that Vidal’s agent has agreed a £182,000-a-week deal with Man United, and that the decision of whether to finally make the switch now rests with the player and Juventus. They point out that Vidal is yet to shed any real light on his thoughts, opting to remain largely silent instead. However, with Juve placing a timeframe on his protracted move, he will have to break his stance soon.He wants United moveThe Express report that Vidal has told close friends that he wants to move to Manchester, following Juventus’ ultimatum. United have reached a ‘broad agreement over personal terms’ the publication reports. Vidal has travelled with Juve on their pre-season tour of Asia, but it looks as though he will be leaving the camp early in order to finalise his reported £47m move.Five-year dealDespite their apparent concerns over a long-standing knee injury, it seems as though Man United are prepared to commit to a long-term deal for Vidal, with the Star reporting that the Red Devils have offered the midfielder a five-year deal. Echoing reports elsewhere, they confirm that the deal will be worth £182,000-a-week with the transfer fee likely to be around £47m.Man United fans, do you think you’ll managed to land Arturo Vidal?

Comair opens Dar es Salaam routes

first_img19 August 2010Comair Limited, operator of low-cost airline kulula.com and the British Airways franchise in South Africa, is again expanding its African network, and will soon be offering five return flights a week between Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.British Airways will be operating the new route from 2 November, and the flights will also be integrated and sold through the kulula.com distribution network.“We look forward to including Dar es Salaam in our growing regional network,” Comair network development manager Stuart Cochrane said in a statement last month.“The growth of this network is part of our ongoing commitment to the South African government’s airlift strategy, which aims to improve access to and from South Africa for both business and tourism.”Daily service on the cardsComair will commence with five return flights per week, the full allocation granted to it by the International Air Services Licensing Council. However, Cochrane said Comair’s intention would be to grow this route to a daily service as soon as possible.Cochrane said the introduction of additional flights to Dar es Salaam would bring a much-needed alternative service – and competitive pricing – to a market that was currently only serviced by one airline operator.“Tanzania is a beautiful country and is rapidly becoming a desirable business and tourist destination,” he said. “We are looking forward to developing this route as a successful addition to our network.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

How to Interview for Hunters

first_imgWhen I started working in staffing, I interviewed thirty to forty people a day. I did this for almost five years. After a while, I could tell within minutes if a candidate was going to show up to work, whether or not they would succeed, or if they would accept a job and not show up at all. My intuition became very highly tuned.Hiring salespeople turned out to be more difficult. Some of my “sure bets” turned out to be duds. The worst performer I ever hired had the highest score on a fancy hiring assessment. Some I took chances on turned out to be stars. Some of the best resumes with the best pedigrees did terribly, and some hires with little to no experience crushed it. Many of the people I hired would have done incredible things if they would have worked as hard to win business and they did to win the job.Over time, I learned a very easy way to tell a hunter from the rest of the pack. I simply asked them to role play a cold call with me. I would say, “Okay, role play a cold call with me, I answer the phone and say, ‘Hello, it’s Anthony Iannarino.” The response is a clue as to whether or not the person is a hunter.Non-hunters will intellectualize the answer. They’ll describe a cold call to you. They’ll say, “Well, first I would research you to see what I could learn about your personally . . . then I’d probably connect with you on LinkedIn . . .” There is nothing wrong with doing your homework. You should look up your prospects on LinkedIn, and you should connect with them.Or they say, “When I make a cold call, what I want to do is . . . “ Most salespeople know what they should do before they make calls, even if they overdo it on the research and emails they believe “warm up” the prospect. It’s not the knowledge of how to pick up the phone and book an appointment that worries me; it’s the unwillingness.When you start a role play in an interview with a hunter, they say, “Good morning, this is . . . I am calling you today . . .” This is one way to know that the person sitting in front of you is a hunter. It doesn’t mean that you should automatically hire them, but it does give you faith that they have the confidence to prospect, and that they aren’t likely to be opportunity-starved while working for you.
