‘TRASH EBOLA’

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) The Liberia Young Women Initiatives (LYWI) over the weekend launched what they termed the “Trash Ebola Project.”LYWI is a group organized to respond to various issues across the country, including female protection and development, health care, counseling, getting children off the streets and dealing with sanitation problems.According to the group’s executive director Madam Catherine D. Nyenawo, the Trash Ebola campaign is intended ‘to rescue and save humanity from Ebola.’She noted, “If young Liberian women had never been in the frontline of making positive change in the country, now is the time that they must take the bull by the horn and make every positive effort to uphold the pride of the state.”Speaking over the weekend during the launch of the campaign at the United Methodist Church compound at 13th in Street Sinkor, Monrovia, Madam Nyenawo called on young people across the country to work hard to ensure that Liberia is safe from the deadly disease that has claimed many lives and ravaged families and the entire nation.She clarified that LYWI was not established to fight against Ebola but rather against ills in society, particularly those meted out against women and children.  Securing a brighter future for young Liberian women remains cardinal in this difficult period, she asserted.“We joined the fight against Ebola since the inception of the outbreak in the country, and we are proud of being a part of this effort.“Prior to the launch of the ‘Trash Ebola Project,’ the women have traveled throughout Liberia engaging quarantined communities, made contributions and offered encouragement through counseling.“We need over US$15,000 for what we have started. We have spent a little over US$5,000 in different communities in this Ebola fight,” Madam Nyenawo stated.Alfalit representative George S. Stewart, Jr. commended the young women for their initiatives, pledging his organization’s commitment to partner with them in whatever way his organization can support their efforts.For her part, the executive director of the Special Emergency Activity to Restore Children’s Hope (SEARCH), Madam Sundah G. Wilson, lauded the group for “taking a bold step in combating Ebola and other vices in the country.” SEARCH is a local non-governmental organization (NGO) catering to the needs of children.Madam Wilson on behalf of SEARCH, donated five buckets of Chlorox, five cartons of tide soap and a carton of sanitary pads for the young women to distribute in the various communities they visit.last_img read more

How Liverpool could line up after the January 2015 transfer window

first_imgBrendan Rodgers may already be looking to the January transfer window to help solve Liverpool’s thus far disappointing 2014/15 campaign.Rodgers has said that his Liverpool squad has no confidence when playing and with marquee signings such as Mario Balotelli and Dejan Lovren not living up to expectation, the Reds boss could look to add further strength to his squad.Marco Reus and Saido Berahino are said to top the list of wanted players, but if Liverpool were to strengthen in January, Rodgers may want to look at defenders.The seemingly first choice back four of Glen Johnson, Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Alberto Moreno have leaked goals this season and have made a number of howlers, and with the likes of Barcelona’s Martin Montoya and West Ham United’s Winston Reid potentially up for grabs, there could be change at the back. The return of the injured John Flanagan could also help strengthen the defence.Another problem for Liverpool is the lack of goals being scored. Daniel Sturridge has been out injured since the start of the season and Balotelli has not found the back of the net after nine Premier League games played. With Sturridge set to return from injury soon, Rodgers needs to decide whether to play him alongside another striker, most likely Balotelli.On loan striker Divock Origi, signed for £10m last summer, has expressed an interest in coming to Anfield in January, so could be an option to partner Sturridge up front.In addition, transfer gossip surrounding Marco Reus is gathering momentum again. At a rumoured price of £20m, the German star is likely to have many interested clubs, but the Reds remain in the hunt for his signature, knowing Reus could represent the kind of world class signing they really need since the departure of Luis Suarez.Meanwhile, captain Steven Gerrard is entering a stage of his career when his automatic selection is no longer a given, as he requires rest to remain at peak physical condition, hence his exclusion from the starting line up away to Real Madrid.As Rodgers introduces young Emre Can to the side, along with the youthful exuberance of Jordan Henderson, the Reds midfield will continue to be rotated, including appearances from Joe Allen and Lucas.With a lot for Rodgers to think about regarding his team and possible transfers, here is how the Merseysiders could line up after the January transfer window.How Liverpool could line up with Reus… How Liverpool could line up with Origi back fron his loan spell and Gerrard rested… 1 1center_img 1 How would you like to see Liverpool line up?

Man United fan starts GoFundMe page to try and get Jose Mourinho sacked

first_img Some Man United fans do not want Jose Mourinho as their manager 3 3 Mourinho has been desperate for new signings this summer An angry Manchester United supporter has started a GoFundMe page to try and get Jose Mourinho sacked. Colombia fans were angry with the result against England center_img 3 However, it appears that view is not shared by the majority – as the page is still yet to receive any donations!The Man United fan’s crowdfunding page follows a story from earlier in the summer, which saw distraught Colombians start a petition to have their World Cup last-16 clash against England REPLAYED after they exited the competition in a penalty shoot-out.Over 300,000 upset Colombia fans pledged their signature to the page, which pleaded FIFA to right the wrongs supposedly made by American referee Mark Geiger. They obviously took no notice, and England eventually progressed to the semi-finals – the furthest the Three Lions have gone in a World Cup since 1990. With the summer transfer window about to close and no new signings on their way to Old Trafford, a frustrated fan has called on his fellow Red Devils faithful to help kick ‘The Special One’ out of their club.Recent reports claimed it would cost the club £12million to axe Mourinho as boss this summer.And a United fan has set up a page to help raise that staggering sum to ensure a change of leadership at Old Trafford.See the GoFundMe page set up to get Jose Mourinho sacked HERE.The unnamed supporter writes on the page: “Like many other Manchester United fans I am rapidly entering depression and it’s all down to one man – Mr Jose Mario dos Santos Mourinho Félix.“Let’s raise the funds necessary to get him sacked so all United fans can feel true happiness one more time.”Mourinho has made no secret of his frustration during the summer, leading to speculative reports he could leave.He has overseen a disappointing pre-season campaign, which saw United travel without a host of their top players, and he has not been backed as he had hoped in the summer market, having managed to bring in only three new signings.Some fans have had enough of the Portuguese’s constant moaning and negatively, and believe he is not the right man to lead the club forward.last_img read more
