first_imgMountains of dirt, unattended for weeks, have again raised concern about a potential sanitation crisis that looms over the nation’s largest food market of Red-light, just outside Monrovia.The Red-light Market plays host to ninety percent of Monrovia’s food and other critical needs from rural Liberia, though the market and its surroundings could never be mistaken for anything that Mary Broh might be associated with.Mr. Davidson B. Mulbah, 44, a prominent resident of Paynesville City, in which the Red-light Market is located, told the Daily Observer Friday that the garbage crisis at Red-light can only be tackled by a radical approach.He added that residents and business people of Red-light Market have suffered to long over the years, from the unbearable stench of rotten garbage, which are dumped right on the main route leading into Liberia’s hinterland.Resident Mulbah also pointed out that the Red-light Market is one of the entrances to the Monrovia, which is Liberia’s capital.“The scene of the rotten garbage is indeed unpleasant and the endless odors highly unacceptable by all standards,” John Belleh, a trader at the Red-light Market, stated.“I personally want to stop speaking to the media. Why? Because, we have spoken and complained through several media outlets and nothing has happened,” trader Belleh bellowed out at our reporter, who had gone out to speak with those doing business in the squalor.He, however, suggested that the current strategies being used by sanitation companies must be revisited and a better crafted one that would swiftly enhance the collection and disposal of trash from the garbage ridden market, be put into place.“In order to ensure a better and healthy environment,” Mr. Belleh noted, “stakeholders in the sanitation sector must graduate from the cosmetic solution to a more robust one. That is the only way, this thing of garbage crisis will be solved.”He further argued that ad-hoc solutions to the sanitation crisis at the Red-light Market are no longer realistic and therefore, efforts should be aimed at sustainable strategies.“We cannot afford and tolerate our food-stuffs being contaminated by both water and air-borne diseases simply due to poor urban sanitation management at the Red-light Market in Paynesville,” trader Belleh stressed.He also underscored the need for Liberia’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other sanitation stakeholders to translate their various conferences’ documents into practical working instruments that would address current challenges in that sector.Mr. Belleh said that mosquitoes, rats, cockroaches and other poisonous animals such as snakes and scorpions are common place in the heart and outskirt of the Red-light Market in Paynesville.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgAs the fight to contain the rapid spread of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) intensifies across the country, an American-based charitable organization has returned to the country with a ‘new method’ to fight the outbreak.The national vice president of Operation Blessing International (OBI), David Darg, who made the disclosure yesterday at a press conference in Monrovia, said the organization returned with a formula to add salt to water with an available energy source (electricity), based on a specific measurement of a drum of water to produce chlorinated water to save the lives of Ebola-afflicted people. This method, he said, was a “very effective weapon” against the Ebola virus. Mr. Darg said the ‘new method’ introduced states that salt added to water through the provision of electricity in a drum of water was enough to mass produce gallons of water that will be chlorinated to serve as life-saving intervention in the fight against the EVD. The mass production of the gallons of chlorinated water, he said, will be mainly distributed in non-Ebola affected communities, which the residents will use for hand washing as part of the preventive measures. OBI is a nonprofit humanitarian organization which started operating in Liberia in 2006.  OBI returned a couple of weeks ago in response to the Ebola crisis, but with a focus to shift the fight from donating anti-Ebola materials to equipping affected communities as well as health caregivers.“Every day, OBI teams are working to alleviate suffering, save lives, help the poor, and bring hope to people all over the world. “The entity, although based in the United States of America (USA), is fully dedicated to demonstrating God’s love by alleviating human need and suffering around the world, of  which Liberia is of no exception,” Mr. Darg said, As one of the largest charities in America, OBI provides strategic relief in 23 countries on a daily basis through core programs such as disaster relief, medical aid, hunger relief, vulnerable children and orphan care, clean water and sanitation as well as community development. To sustain the production exercise locally, OBI national director, Rev. Emery David,  said apart from bringing into the country quantities of medical supplies, including personal protective equipments (PPE), doctors and or nurses’ suits and patient care clothing, the entity has trained several other Liberians in various methods that will eliminate Ebola from the country. “Training of Liberians is essential because they would work with the locals to transmit messages, awareness and sensitization to prevent the EVD.”The water, too, he said, will subsequently be distributed among church leaders who have formed a network to prevent Ebola from the various communities.These hospital supplies and the chlorinated gallons of water, Rev. David believes, will be well coordinated with religious leaders across the country so that they will reach all communities “free-of-charge.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgDeputy Pearse Doherty.The European Commission has decided to include the Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme as part of an infringement case against the government over its failure to deliver the project.The decision, which was taken following the submission of a report to the European Commission by Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy, means that the institution has now formally launched infringement procedures against Ireland as the delay to progress the scheme is in clear violation of the EU Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive.The move has been welcomed by Deputy Pearse Doherty. “Back In May my party colleague MEP Matt Carthy brought this matter to the attention of the Commission when he submitted a report to the Commissioner in Brussels in which he argued that the inaction by successive governments to introduce the scheme was in violation of EU legislation, namely the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive.“The Commissioner, Mr Karmenu Vella, subsequently responded to this submission in June in which he said that in light of the evidence provided by Matt Carthy in his report that it was the intention of the European Commission to include the Goath Dobhair Sewerage scheme to the outstanding infringement cases against Ireland as he agreed that the failure to introduce waste water infrastructure in Gaoth Dobhair contravened EU legislation.“The Commissioner stated in his response that a formal decision to proceed with this case would be made once authorities here had the opportunity to respond to the report as is part of normal procedure in such cases to find an early resolve.“I understand that the Commission last week wrote to Matt Carthy to confirm that it has now formally included questions concerning the situation of compliance surrounding the Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme to its infringement file and that as part of this procedure a letter of formal notice for non-compliance has now been issued to the government. “The Government now has a number of weeks to respond to the Commission’s notice following which, if it fails to satisfactorily prove to the Commission that it is making all necessary progress to resolve the issue, then the European Commission may then decide to refer the matter to the EU Court of Justice in order to initiate litigation procedures.“While I of course welcome the Commission’s decision, it is completely unacceptable that successive governments have allowed this situation to manifest to such an extent to get to this stage where we now have infringement procedures being brought against the state as a result of complete inaction and utter incompetence.“The people of Gaoth Dobhair have been waiting for over 40 years for a much needed sewerage scheme to serve the region and this ridiculous delay by governments illustrate the complete lack of concern which Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and Labour have for the area: not only for its economic development but also for its residents.”GAOTH DOBHAIR SEWERAGE SCHEME INCLUDED IN COMMISSION’S INFRINGEMENT CASE was last modified: December 13th, 2015 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more
