      from TrueCharisma Added 4 0 0

      This video tells the story of a language beyond words. Anthropologist, Robin Sol Lieberman, calls this language, "True Charisma." The Era of Global Citizenship is here! If you are an inventor, a leader or an entrepreneur it’s no news to you that the biggest innovations are springing up from those who recognize themselves as global citizens. But how do you have a conversation with the whole planet when you may only speak one or two languages? Answer: The Charisma Code Ready to Innovate? Ready to Disrupt? Ready for Your Revolution?

      • UNMISS works with Warrap State Hospital


        from UNMISS Media Added 3 0 0

        The Kenyan Battalion in Kuajok, as part of its CIMIC activities in Warrap State, is actively involved with the Warrap State Hospital. A medical officer from the Battalion visits the hospital two to three times weekly, making the rounds with the doctors onsite. She focuses primarily on the maternity ward, and if time permits, also spends time in the general ward and outpatient ward. The hospital started as a dispensary in 1954, became a hospital in 2009, and finally became Warrap State Hospital in 2012, one year after Independence. In addition to the general, maternity, and outpatient wards, the hospital has an operating theater and a dispensary. The UNMISS Relief, Reintegration, and Protection Section in Warrap worked with implementing partners to complete a Quick Impact Project in 2014 that focused on upgrading the hospital. Facets of the work completed included rehabilitation of the general ward, installation of solar panels, maintenance and extension of the water system, building of latrines for the maternity ward, and the provision of anaesthetic equipment (the only equipment of its kind in the country).

          • The Angel of Catania


            from Iason Athanasiadis Added 5 0 0

            Almost every morning she wakes up with the next phone call, whether from a mother travelling with several children or a boatful of migrants in distress at sea with satellite phones in hand. From the inception of their treacherous journey crossing the Mediterranean Sea to their onward travel to Italy and further into the heart of Europe, she guides them. Amid the chaos, she is often their only confidante. “When they contact me before they start, I tell them that I cannot condone that they take to the sea — whether from the humanitarian, legal or ethical perspective,” Ms Soufi says. But knowing that they will continue to come hundreds at a time, vulnerable to deception and trafficking, she has been unable to stop helping them. www.thenational.ae/world/europe/the-guardian-angel-guiding-migrants-after-perilous-crossing
