Packing the RIGHT relief goods

Packing the right relief goods

Wisdom Errua
EYES HERE. To everyone who is actively participating in packing relief goods to be sent in Tacloban City/Leyte, please note of the following:

1.) DO NOT PACK NOODLES OR ANYTHING THAT NEEDS WATER. There is no water and electricity so it is impossible to consume this kind of food.

2.) PACK MEDICINES – most especially basic medicines (biogesic, bioflu, robitussin etc). Also if possible, includ medicine for surface wounds as many have been wounded because of the debris and fallen rooftops.

3.) PACK AT LEAST ONE BOTTLE OF WATER. People are raging for water (some have even become violent just for water). There is no source of water at all at any part of Tacloban.

4.) PACK CANDLES AND MATCHES – there’s no electricity for a minimum of two months so all people will need these.

5.) ENCOURAGE YOUR RESPECTIVE GROUP/ORGANIZATION TO DONATE BODYBAGS. Bodies are lying around the roads within the city and some of the places have already been filled up with bodies.

Thank you very much! Godbless!

Jekah Carillo Solar energy lights can also be an alternative to candles to prevent fires as mentioned by Glecil Barrera Paulo “Will be buying a solar energy kit for us to use back in Leyte. We discourage our grams to use candles, we’re afraid of any undesirable events to happen. There’s an affordable one in CDR-King which has rechargeable LED bulbs included and several phone connector tips too. This will be very useful as the outage there will run for more than a month..”

Thank you Lord!

We’d like to thank everyone specially my uncle and aunt who went to Tacloban to look for my grandparents, my aunt and her family and my uncle and his family. Just received news from them that all of them are fine and well. They’re just tired from scarce of food, water and proper shelter. Thank you Lord!

Baby cured of HIV for the first time

Baby cured of HIV for the first time

 

I read this particular article that a baby in Mississippi was cured of HIV as an infant. The doctors and researchers were astonished themselves too. This is a good sign as there are a lot of innocent babies who are born HIV positive every year, all over the world. If cure is found, it does not mean that it’s okay for people to continue their habits of retrieving the disease. We too must prevent these diseases from occurring through proper sex education, not just in schools but also for adults. There are a lot of couples all over the world who do not receive education. Therefore couples, young or old, should also educate themselves about the disadvantages of having multiple partners and habits that would lead to transmitting the disease. We hope that AIDS/HIV positive individuals will decrease in numbers and in the long run, disappear. It’s long shot however, there is nothing wrong in dreaming for it.

While the tests have detected an occasional “signal” of the virus, the various analyses from several labs using different techniques “confirms to us that this is a case of ‘functional cure,’ meaning that the virus hasn’t rebounded and that…we can’t detect virus activity in this child,” Dr. Persaud said. The work also was supported by the NIH.
