South Sudan doctor wins UN award For Humanitarian Work

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). The award, which is bestowed on an individual who goes beyond the call of duty to help save lives, is a huge recognition of Dr. Atar’s tireless commitment to bring some sense...

Interior:  Decorating Children’s Bedroom

Interior:  Decorating Children’s Bedroom

 Children, by nature, are small, but they definitely can consume a larger part of the house’s space. When you walk into a house with children, in most cases, their presence is quickly noticed in the state of the house – from those jackets hanging (you mean lying on the floor?) on the wall to the dirty rainboots scattered at the doorstep. You need some sense of creativity and discipline to create that orderliness in a house. However, since children spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, not only sleeping but equally...

US and ICC: Fighting for Justice and the Rule of Law

  Yesterday, the US had threatened to impose sanctions against the International Criminal Court (ICC) if it prosecutes Americans. The threats were made by the US National Security Adviser John Bolton as he vowed: “to protect our citizens” by all means from what he called an “illegitimate” court. Mr. Bolton’s statement was a reaction to the court’s recent consideration to prosecute US servicemen and women over alleged human rights abuses in Afghanistan, including detainee abuse. What is the ICC? International Criminal Court (ICC) was established by a UN treaty in...

Statement by the President of the Assembly, O-Gon Kwon, reaffirming support for the ICC

The International Criminal Court is an independent and impartial judicial institution crucial for ensuring accountability for the gravest crimes under international law. The Court is non-political and acts strictly within the legal framework of the Rome Statute, its founding treaty. The Court’s mandate is to help put an end to impunity for the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole and to bring justice to those affected by such crimes. One of the cornerstones of the Rome Statute system is that it recognizes the primary...

Proverb of the week: “Dogs do not actually prefer bones to meat; it is just that no one ever gives them meat.”

Proverb of the week: “Dogs do not actually prefer bones to meat; it is just that no one ever gives them meat.”

Dogs do not actually prefer bones to meat; it is just that no one ever gives them meat. ~ Akan (Ghana) Are you meant to be poor? Is your social condition “normal” and permanent? These are perhaps some of the questions you might ask yourself. With the above proverb, the Akan people of Ghana try to create that sense of consciousness amongst themselves and discourage one from accepting their negative social situation without trying hard to change it positively. To be able to achieve much in one’s life, they need to...

That Silent Killer Called Hepatitis

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 it is not just caused by a single virus, its viruses,...
