South Sudan doctor wins UN award For Humanitarian Work

The mere mentioning of South Sudan invokes the images of war, pandemonium, refugee crisis, hunger and starvation, and a near-failed State. However, sometimes, hopes can spring out of hopelessness. Happily, this is a typical case, as South Sudanese surgeon Dr. Evan Atar was named as the winner of the Nansen Refugee Award by the UN refugee agency (UNHCR).

That Silent Killer Called Hepatitis

Often when we talk of deadly diseases or sicknesses, our minds go to cancer, Aids, stroke, and the rest; hardly, do we think of hepatitis. Hepatitis, an inflammation of the liver, which can be self-limiting or can progress to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer, is often caused by hepatitis viruses. Other infections, auto-immune diseases, toxic substances such as alcohol and certain drugs also play a major part in causing hepatitis. What makes hepatitis deadly is the fact that…

Why You May Need a Therapist

 Ironically, what makes life, which is enmeshed in problems, meaningful, is its ability to act as our teacher in the tempestuous journey of maturity. Problems are inevitable in life. We learn from them in order to make our lives worth living and purposeful. However, not everyone can cope with these inevitable problems in life. While some people can successfully take care of their life obstacles, others are overwhelmed by them. A good reason to go online and seek a…

Some of these gargantuan problems are caused by massive corruption, which leads to other precarious menaces like poor education and healthcare, as well as social problems. To some individuals, these social challenges are part of the rat race, as such, one must learn to adapt and live with them; others, however, see the failures as a call for an urgent need to learn…

Vote for  Mr Africa!

Often we hear that African leaders are corrupt, incompetent, selfish, visionless…. (continue counting till the day breaks…). While we question why those clueless Africans are elected or accepted by the masses, more questions come to mind. Could it be that the African masses share some blames for the incompetence and bad leadership of their leaders? Or can one argue that some Africans perhaps exhibit some characteristics of their leaders? The same leaders they criticise? Same genes? Hum! Isn’t time…

Breastfeeding: A Source of Life or Embarrassment?

Breastfeeding is not only the best way to provide infants with the nutrients they need, it leads to sustainable growth in the society.

Obesity in Africa and The Deadly Consequences

Overweight and obesity, which are abnormal or excessive fat accumulation in the body, are not only dangerous to the health; they have other social consequences.  Due to the recent increased intake of energy-dense foods, high in fat, globally, we expose ourselves to obesity. Worse still, with the latest technological advancement, human beings have become increasingly inactive. The changing modes of transportation and increasing urbanization do not help minimize obesity, as many rarely move physically. It complicates matters that many…

Africa And Birth Control: From Boom To Doom

Lack of Family planning is one of the biggest challenges facing Africa today. It leads to socio-economic doom. So are the health problems associated with lack of family planning enormous. Ironically, Africans are so much emotionally attached to children, but sadly, the worst thing you can do to a child is to bring them into the world without taking good and proper care of them. Every child deserves the unconditional love of the parents and that includes being able…

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) As a Vote Enticer In Sierra Leone

As Sierra Leone prepares for the forthcoming general elections, scheduled in March, female genital mutilation (FGM) has become, ironically, an enticing piece of meat to grab votes from the poor electorate. While many countries in the world and aid agencies are busy discouraging girls from undergoing female genital mutilation, which has been proved medically to have many dangerous health repercussions, some politicians in Sierra Leone – especially candidates in the upcoming elections – are in fact, buying voters’ votes…

Taxi Buffet

Most times we get hungry and honestly, who wouldn’t want to interrupt their daily chores for food! I guess we all do that, but how do we program ourselves with our meals and venues – especially with strangers around? It was 4 O’clock in the afternoon, I was in a Matatu (public bus), heading home from work after a tedious day. There was this beautiful woman sitting next to me and of course, I could not resist greeting her….
