The problem with this and other aide agencies is that they fail to invest in the nation or people. Helping people stay alive is good but what about means to stay healthy and well in the future?   -Africa&Us
"This is one of the major setbacks in Nigeria and other African countries receiving aid-The agencies give money to the government who as expected, use the money to buy aide -water, food, etc- and distribute it to different rural areas. Not only do they fail to invest money in the country but fail to use the specific nation’s currency and have the money circulating in the business world. This would give some credibility to the nation’s currency therefore improving the perspective of the country by outsiders. What happens when all this aide is done?" - Olayinka Lawal

life:


“I am feeling better. I was very weak in my joints, but now they are becoming stronger. I also have pain when I swallow. Even if I am taking water, it is painful. My mum is now worried — she has lost hope. She does not think I am going to get better. I must encourage my family that I am going to become better. I still have hope that I will recover. But the TB is a problem. Before it was very bad because I couldn’t even move. Now I have energy, and I can walk. I can even cook and clean the house. I still can’t do hard jobs, but I can do little things. When I started the ARVs, my CD4 count was seven, and now it is 150. Without them, I would be dead by now. My little boys always help me. They say, ‘Mummy, here is some water,’ and get the pills and give them to me. I just hope God can keep me for a long time so I will be with them.”

IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS.
bugwork:

Traditional cleansing of former child soldier
Traditional healing ceremonies have been lauded as an effective and integral aspect of psychosocial healing and reintegration in Sierra Leone for girls associated with the fighting forces. Reintegration has proven extremely difficult for these girls. They were stigmatized by their families and communities who saw them as “impure” as a result of sexual abuse. They have been verbally and physically attacked, restricted from mingling with family and community and prohibited from marrying. Their spiritual pollution is believed to cause misfortune, bad harvests and health problems
