Monrovia Club Breweries Gives US$1,940 for Landscaping At Wellness Unit in Kakata

first_imgErosion is threatening the newly constructed Mental Health and Wellness Unit at the C. H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata (Photo: Zeze E. Ballah)The newly constructed wellness unit situated on the compound of the C. H. Rennie hospital in Margibi has received US$1,940 from the Monrovia Club Breweries for landscaping.To increase inpatient capacity and decentralize access to mental health services provided across the country, the National Mental Health Policy developed by the Government of Liberia and its partners called for the establishment of at least one wellness unit at each county referral hospital across the country.In 2012, there was only one such wellness unit. Located in Bong’s Phebe Hospital; that mental health center catered to persons with mental, neurological, and substance abuse problems. Liberia has now made some progress in building wellness units in other counties including River Gee, Grand Kru and Grand Gedeh.In the case of Grand Kru County, a space for the unit was provided in the referral hospital and refurbished by Partners in Health whereas in Maryland County, there is only a screening and consultation area.Following the completion of the facility in Margibi, the Liberian Center for Outcomes Research in Mental Health (LICORMH) began seeking support from donors and other institutions to complete the landscaping which is the final stage of the project.The newly constructed Mental Health and Wellness Unit at the C. H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata (Photo: Zeze E. Ballah)Erosion has begun threatening the newly constructed wellness unit because of heavy rains.In an effort to protect the facility from destruction, Nelson Oniyama, managing director, Monrovia Club Breweries, presenting a check of US$1,940, said he was impressed by the effort of LICORMH to undertake a project that is meant to serve Liberians with mental problems.“LICORMH has and continues to work and address issues affecting persons with mental illness in the country,” Oniyama said.He said that, though Monrovia Club Breweries was not involved with the construction of the facility, he could sit and see the wellness unit being threatened by erosion, adding, “the issue of mental health in the country should not be left with LICORMH alone, but should be the concern of everyone”.On Liberians affected with conditions the wellness unit hopes to answer, Oniyama also said he hopes to see the community taking ownership of the facility, stressing that “the wellness unit has been constructed to find answers to persons with mental illness.”Oniyama also made a personal contribution of US$900, bringing the total amount received by LICORMH to US$2,840, for landscaping the wellness unit.LICORMH also hopes to use the donated funds for security and safety measures at the wellness unit.Dedicated on June 15, the US$65,500 wellness facility aims to provide services to persons with mental illness in Margibi and Montserrado counties. Funds for the facility construction were provided by the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), while the LICORMH executed the project.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Chelsea plot to sack Conte, eye Enrique for replacement

first_imgComments Chelsea manager Antonio Conte could end his career at the club todayReigning English Premier League champions Chelsea are on the brink of sacking charismatic Italian manager Antonio Conte following the latest fall in form for the London outfit.Chelsea lost 4-1 away to Watford on Monday on succession to 3:0 hammering at home at the hands of Bournemouth last Wednesday.The British press reported on Tuesday that the London giants have called a board meeting on Tuesday to decide the manager’s fate. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic has shown no loyalty to managers ever since he took over the team in 2002, firing more than 10 managers in the last 15 years.Conte started his reign on a high, winning the premiership in his first season, but his second and current season has turned into a nightmare, with tensions between himself and the board over the transfer policy and targets.Conte said after defeat at Watford on Monday that he doesn’t care being sacked from the Chelsea job but insisted that he was eager to finish his 3-year contract he signed in 2016.Luis Enrique is close to replacing Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager, according to reports.

Airlines demand better communication on security issues

first_imgAUSTRALIA’s response to the US laptop ban has been singled out as a less disruptive way of dealing with the electronic device bomb threat amid calls for better co-operation between airlines and governments.Australia stopped short of banning large electronic devices in the cabins of aircraft flying from the Gulf airports of Doha, Abu Dhabi and Dubai but tightened up security requirements.Passengers heading to Australia from the Gulf ports now face random explosive detection screening and may be required to power up their electronic devices.The requirements affect passengers on services operated by Qantas, Emirates, Etihad and Qatar and are similar to those already in place for Australian domestic flights..Releasing February traffic statistics that showed continued strong growth in air travel this year, the International Air Transport Association renewed its criticism of the US ban on large electronic devices in the cabins of aircraft from some North African and Middle east destinations. “It’s intolerable that governments continue to add to the uncertainties facing the air transport industry by failing to engage airline operational know-how on issues that can damage public confidence,’’ IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac said. “The introduction of restrictions on the carry-on of large electronic devices was a missed opportunity and the result was a measure that cannot stand-up to the scrutiny of public confidence in the long term.“Although Australia’s measures were also implemented without consulting the industry, they at least demonstrate the potential to mitigate the threat with less disruptive means. We all want to keep flying secure. And we can do that most effectively by working together.’’De Juniac called on states to support the International Civil Aviation Organisation as it develops a global aviation security plan that includes better information sharing.A major criticism of the US ban was the hurried way it was implemented and the lack of information.last_img read more
