first_imgThe Maternity Ward of the Redemption Hospital in New Kru Town was a scene of joy for women who had just given birth on Saturday afternoon as the Management of Ecobank Liberia Limited (ELL) donated assorted food and non-food items to them. Nearly 100 women benefitted from the donation which was hand delivered to them (mothers) by Ecobank staff, led by their Executive Director, David Thompson and head of Domestic Banking, Madam Doreen McIntosh. The items were sorted out in black polythene bags.The Administrative Assistant to the Hospital’s Administrator, Ms. Fascia L. McCauley, and certified midwife, Mrs. Youngor Jackson, escorted the Bank’s delegation to the Maternal Ward to distribute the items. According to Ecobank officials, the donation is the bank’s way touching the lives of women and their children in celebration of Women’s Day across the globe. Surprised by the donation, the women said the gift items would not have come at a better time. One of the beneficiaries, Madam Lukiatu Passawe, thanked Ecobank Management for the surprised and promised to use the items for her baby’s wellbeing.“I am very happy, but surprise because nobody told us that Ecobank was coming here to make a donation to us,” she said. “The items Ecobank brought are those items that women need most when they have just given birth.”The package comprised of baby diapers and baby powers, soup, baby socks and several other assorted items for babies. Also in the package were sardines, luncheon meat and other food items.The Maternity Ward of the Hospital, our reporter say was jammed packed with women who had just given birth.Hospital officials told our reporter that most of the women and other patients prefer seeking medical attention to Redemption Hospital because the hospital provides free medical services to them. “You can see that all of the beds are jammed packed with women, who have just given birth. Most of them prefer coming here to deliver because medical services here are free,” this hospital staff said on condition of anonymity. Ma Zazay, who had just given birth to a bouncing baby boy, noted “Redemption Hospital is the only hospital I prefer taking treatment at.”She joined other women in the ward to thank Ecobank for the donation and urged the Bank to continue with its humanitarian gesture to other women who are in need.“I feel so happy and don’t know how to thank Ecobank for this gesture because I wasn’t expecting it. These gifts will help me a lot because they contain several items that I don’t have money to buy right,” she stated.  The hospital’s certified midwife Youngor Jackson, for her part, thanked Ecobank for the donation “to the mothers who came to give birth.”“I believe that they will all remember these gifts since, in fact, they are receiving them on Women’s Day celebration.” According to Mrs. Jackson, remembering those women on Women’s Day means a lot to them. “I must appreciate Ecobank for this gesture because it is very timely,” she said.Mrs. Jackson expressed the hope that Ecobank will remember the women of Liberia and do more during the celebration of women’s day next year.The head of domestic Banking at Ecobank Madam Doreen McIntosh told reporters that Ecobank chose Redemption Hospital because the hospital is one of those government hospitals that have less fortunate patients. Madam McIntosh, who expressed her upbeat at the cleanliness of the Redemption Hospital, thanked the hospital’s Management for the ‘impressive’ work. “I see that the hospital is very clean and I see the children are being taken care of and the beds are filled with sick children. I was particularly happy when I saw the nurses taking care of all of the children, while it is true that our arrival was not unannounced. We all know how government hospitals can be in our part of the world, but Redemption Hospital is making the difference,” Doreen observed. She told reporters that Ecobank Management had gone to the hospital to donate to mothers that are desperately in need. “We came to identify with the less fortunate mothers in the maternity ward and so we gave them what we had and it is our hope that the items will help solve some of the many challenges they are encountering,” Doreen stated.Some of the items donated were baby diapers, powders, detergent, and baby bathing soap, napkins and other assorted items including provision–food items, amongst others.The Ecobank’s domestic bank boss noted that the donation was specifically for women and their children.“We are doing this because today is World’s Women’s Day,” she said.For his part, Ecobank Executive Director David Thompson wondered whether it is true that medical services at Redemption Hospital are actually free.“I think this is very great because I have seen the ward which is very great. I am impressed by the working spirit of the hospital staff and that this has given us the courage to extend this exercise to other government hospitals come next year,” said the Ecobank Executive Director.He said the objective of the exercise is to ensure that Ecobank helps the government to make life better for all Liberians.Mr. Thompson thanked the Management of Redemption Hospital for taking good care of the hospital and the patients and expressed the hope that patients who are currently admitted at the hospital get healed in the shortest possible time. Also on the Ecobank delegation was the head of Human Resource Madam Rose Wende.  The cost of the assorted items is estimated at about US$5,000.00.        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_imgIn an effort to revive agriculture and avert hunger in Ebola-hit countries, the World Bank Group has mobilized up to US$15 million in emergency financing to provide a record of 10,500 tons of maize and rice seed to over 200,000 farmers in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.The items will be distributed to the countries in time for the April planting season.The funds, in the form of grants financed by the International Development Association (IDA) and the Ebola Recovery and Reconstruction Trust Fund, will also be used to purchase fertilizer required to multiply foundation seed to meet tight planting season deadlines and help lay the foundations for sustained recovery.Since the first reported outbreak in December 2013, the Ebola virus disease (EVD) has affected agriculture and food sectors and farming activities which are an economic mainstay of all three countries causing a lot of suffering to the people.More than one million people could go hungry unless they have reliable access to food and emergency measures are taken immediately to safeguard crop and livestock production.According to World Bank, over 230,000 people in Guinea are food insecure, a number that could rise to 470,000 by March 2015 while in Liberia over 170,000 are estimated to be severely food insecure and could swell to 300,000 and over 120,000 people are food insecure and their numbers could rise to 280,000 by March 2015 in Sierra Leone.Rice production fell by one-fifth, corn by a quarter, coffee by half and cocoa by a third in Guinea while labour shortages, high prices for staple foods have exacerbated widespread food insecurity in Liberia and similarly in Sierra Leone.The World Bank Group latest report estimates that the three countries would lose at least US$1.6 billion in forgone economic growth in 2015 as a result of the epidemic.“Agriculture is the lifeline of the economies of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone,” said Makhtar Diop, World Bank Vice President for Africa.  “By speeding supplies of urgently needed seeds of major food crops to communities in West Africa, we are jump starting recovery in rural areas and preventing the looming spectral of hunger in the countries hardest hit by Ebola.”The World Bank Vice President lamented that flight of rural workers and an inability to work in groups due to fear of infection in both affected and non-affected zones has complicated the harvest and risks compounding the crisis even further. “It will be critical to focus on the agricultural sector as a driver of economic recovery and a key component in ensuring the longer-term welfare of the most vulnerable in all three countries.”Last year, growth rate in Guinea collapsed to 0.5%, down from 4.5% prior to onset of the crisis. In Liberia, growth fell to 2.2% compared to 5.9% projected before the crisis. Sierra Leone’s growth rate fell by more than half, to 4% from a projected high of 11.3%.The bank has also mobilized about US$1 billion in financing for the countries hardest hit by the Ebola crisis. This includes $518 million from IDA, the World Bank Group’s fund for the poorest countries, to provide treatment and care, contain and prevent the spread of infections, help communities cope with the economic impact of the crisis, and improve public health systems; at least $450 million from IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, to enable trade, investment and employment.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_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), which represents about 20,000 dock workers at 29 West Coast ports, voted to begin talks on an extension of its contract with the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA), which represents West Coast port facilities owners. The PMA and ILWU signed a five-year contract in early 2015 – retroactive to July 1, 2014 – after protracted labor talks and a nearly four-month work slowdown that negatively affected U.S. exporters.The U.S. meat and poultry sectors lost an estimated $40 million a week during the slowdown, which went from November 2014 to February 2015. NPPC and 112 other trade associations in March 2016 sent a letter to the ILWU and the PMA, urging them to begin early discussions on a contract extension or a new contract. The groups, representing manufacturers, farmers and agribusinesses, wholesalers, retailers, importers, exporters, distributors, transportation and logistics providers and other supply chain stakeholders, also suggested the two sides develop a new model, including early and continuous dialogue between the parties, for future negotiations and called on the union and the port association “to avoid actions that would slow, stop, or disrupt cargo movement during negotiations.”In a related matter, the International Longshoremen’s Association, representing East Coast and Gulf Coast dock workers, put a hold on its early contact talks with the United States Maritime Alliance. That contract expires in September 2018.last_img read more
