HIS Church Brings in Food Items

first_imgThe international charity, HIS Church, based in Lincolnshire, the United Kingdom, has dispatched three 40-foot containers to Liberia containing food and non-food items to assist indigent communities throughout the country in the wake of the untold sufferings caused by the Ebola virus outbreak.The items, estimated at $1.4 million United States dollars, are in response to a special appeal recently  made to the charity by the Vice President, Joseph N. Boakai.According to the Coordinator at HIS Church Charity, Mr. Richard Humphrey, “his organization is immensely pleased to identify with Liberia at this critical time in the country’s history,  especially considering the devastating effects the ongoing Ebola virus has had on the human capacity and infrastructure developments initiated by the government of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.”Speaking further, he said one of the containers is loaded specifically with items to assist communities devastated by the Ebola outbreak. The items include mattresses, beddings, kitchenware, clothing, sewing machines, high grade Basmati rice, high visibility jackets, handbags, anti-bacteria lotions among others.He noted that “the food and non-food items are intended to assist residents in quarantined communities with basic needs while helping to contain the spread of the virus and the loss of additional lives”.Also speaking at the loading bay in Lincolnshire, the Liberian Ambassador to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Rudolf von Ballmoos, thanked HIS Church Charity on behalf of the President, government and people of Liberia for the huge consignment of items designated for the people of Liberia. He noted, “This  gesture on the part of HIS Church Charity demonstrates the level of concern shown by international organizations towards the eradication of the Ebola virus from Liberia.The unexpected emergence of the Ebola virus at a time when the government is pursuing a protracted transformation agenda following years of civil conflict, said Ambassador von Ballmos, has the potential to cause distractions.  He, however,  assured His Church leaders that the government of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf remains committed to eliminating the virus from the country with the support of all friendly governments and international organizations.The containers are being loaded at the Felixstowe port outside London and are expected to arrive in Liberia by the end of September.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO TACKLE CORRUPTION IN IRELAND

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has today called on the Government to tackle corruption in Irish politics by introducing a mandatory register of lobbyists to ensure that policy making is not skewed in favour of special interests.Addressing the issue today to Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore at Leaders’ Questions, the Independent TD for Donegal South West stated: “I understand that the legislation is in the drafting stage but can we be more specific, and please don’t bother to bring out that very long finger….like Pinocchio’s nose it will soon fall off if it gets any longer!”“Minister Howlin stated in March that a white paper on this matter would be published within weeks with legislation to follow. Now Gilmore tells us that the Heads of the Bill haven’t even been drafted, but is ‘expected’ to be ready by the end of the summer. This is simply not good enough for such an important issue. It is quite interesting how Labour seems to have gone to the dark side on this matter, when they were quite vocal on the opposition benches regarding lobbying and vested interests, etc. not so long ago,” added Pringle.“What is needed is the prioritisation of this legislation and a statutory register of lobbyists which must be mandatory if it is to be effective. But it is very clear that the Government is in no hurry on this matter.”“The Mahon and Moriarty tribunals have clearly shown us just how much corruption has been embedded in Irish politics over the years. Now is the time to act,” stated Pringle.   PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO TACKLE CORRUPTION IN IRELAND was last modified: June 7th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:PRINGLE CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO TACKLE CORRUPTION IN IRELANDlast_img read more
