Desperation for Namibia flood victims

Namibia flood victimsFrom AFRED SHILONGO in Windhoek, Namibia
WINDHOEK, (CAJ News) – THOUSANDS of Namibians displaced by floods are living in dire conditions at camps housing the victims of the inclement weather.
Among these are 1 400 displaced by flooding in the Zambezi River, a situation that could worsen amid projections the water levels in Zambezi region could rise again and increase the number to 2 000 victims.
The fears come as more flood waves hit Namibia from Zambia.
The Red Cross reported the 1 410 people displaced by the river could not access some of the basic services such as health and education.
Most of the schools and health were inaccessible.
Displaced communities currently in relocation camps have limited access to proper accommodation, sanitation facilities, access to safe clean water, and lack of preventative items such as mosquito nets.
“This increases the likelihood of outbreak of diseases such as malaria and diarrhea thus putting the affected communities at more risk,” a Red Cross spokesperson said.
Overall, flooding displaced more than 2 500 Namibians.
Apart from the Zambezi river flooding, heavy rains within the Cuvelai River Basin in Angola and localized rainfalls in Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena and Omusati earlier this year resulted in localised flooding.
Due to their forced displacements, most of the households require blankets, kitchen sets and hygiene kits, shelter, assistance with transport to relocation centres especially for women of child bearing age, access to improved sanitation and hygiene promotion.
There was also a need for facilitating the access to medication for children, pregnant and lactating mothers and People Living with HIV/AIDS.

  3. The cost is the big reason why I’ve never gone to formula, even though I’ve considered it.I’ve given my son a few bottles, he gets a bunch at daycare. Bottle feeding is a complete pain with washing and sterilizing everything, and I don’t do it right. It’s messy. Even with a still painful latch at twelve weeks, nursing is way easier.

  7. ” According to the update Ira added to his own post, it was probably the Americans, not the Israelis – unless the Israelis have truly awesome capabilities.”Actually the current thinking that all of these things are being done jointly by the US and israel.“capabilities.The thrust of your statement, however, is that since Israel sometimes does bad things, anything it ever does is bad.”Nope. That is you trying to generate a strawman. My point is that since israel often does evil things, it should be prevented from aquiring information which would permit it to do more evil things.

  8. God jul! Takk for flotte gaver. Katja tusser rundt i flamingo tøflene sine Ludvig har brukt Vossatassar dressen sin i dag.

  11. I had to jump on this train b/c I like the track its on! I agree—there is value and honor in living faithfully for the Lord, loving others well, doing what needs to be done . . . and I do not need to give it a name and develop a logo to do it. How I live is meaningful b/c the Lord empowers me in it, not because my name or ministry or writings are known by an audience of twenty-thousand-and-one. (Now, I just need to remind myself of all this when my pride itches for what the world offers.)

  12. The problem with trading options is that you’ve to get things right in that 1 or 2 big trade cycles – like last Jan – March parabolic rally or this recent sell off. Right now, I would have fared much better by being in just common from June 2011 till date than trading options, hope this picture changes by Jan 13.

  18. The birther summit is 8 months away. There is no telling what is going to be going on with the economy and this country in 8 months. Some people say we will be in a great depression and world war 3 by the end of this year. The birther summit needs to be reorganized and changed to a date between august and october. Please listen to us.

  19. Mooi, Luud! Trouwens, ik heb ook nog een paar banden die ik wel over zou willen zetten naar iets digitaals… dus als je een keertje tijd over hebt. ;-)Laatst zag ik wel dat er van die handige waren, maar ja, een videorecorder heb ik natuurlijk niet meer.Van hetzelfde merk heb ik trouwens wel een platenspeler – daarmee heb ik al een paar lp's gedigitaliseerd. Werkt ook prima!
