Political unrest in Haiti delays grand opening celebration at rebuilt…

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 St. Vincent’s School for Handicapped Children in Haiti welcomes students on the first day of school, Sept. 11. Photo: St. Vincent’s, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] The threat of violent political protests in Haiti has forced Episcopal leaders to postpone the grand opening celebration at a rebuilt school that had been scheduled for Oct. 16.The Oct. 12 letter from St. Vincent’s School administrators did not identify a specific threat to the school but spoke of general concern for security at the grand opening celebration, especially given that some of recent violence has affected foreign visitors.Rebuilding the St. Vincent’s School for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince, destroyed by the 2010 earthquake that struck the Caribbean island nation, has long been a priority of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti. As of earlier this year, the school’s board had acquired a new property in Santo, renovated an existing house and planned other buildings on the site.Students first began attending the new school on Sept. 11, and the grand opening on Oct. 16 was planned as a two-hour ceremony celebrating the new facility, with a tour to follow.But in an email Oct. 12, Board Chairman William Craddock and Development Coordinator Jennifer Wickham said the country’s recent political unrest was “a volatile situation worthy of our attention,” and they tentatively moved the grand opening celebrations to Dec. 3, to coincide with International Day of Persons with Disabilities.“We are grateful for all those who support Saint Vincent with gifts and prayers, and we are especially thankful to those of you who made travel plans to be with us during these gatherings,” Craddock and Wickham said. “We regret the many inconveniences caused by this decision, but we are in agreement that the safety of our students, families and guests must be of paramount importance.”Since 2016, the rebuilding of St. Vincent’s has received the support of the Haiti Partnership Committee, established by a memo of understanding between the Episcopal Church and Diocese of Haiti. The school is one of three priorities of the committee, the other two projects being the Holy Trinity Cathedral Complex and St. Barnabas Agricultural College.Two years earlier, St. Vincent’s got a substantial financial boost from the gift of a New York Episcopalian, Mary White. Although the amount of her gift was not made public, it was celebrated in 2014 as an expression of confidence in the church’s work in Haiti helping children with disabilities.The magnitude 7 earthquake that struck Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, killed more than 300,000 people, left as many wounded and displaced more than 1.5 million. It also destroyed 80 percent of the Diocese of Haiti’s infrastructure in Port-au-Prince.Governments and international relief agencies responded by committing billions of dollars in aid to Haiti, long considered the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.As the country recovered over the following years, signs of the earthquake’s toll have remained. Holy Trinity Cathedral, for example, was destroyed in the earthquake and has yet to be rebuilt. A temporary structure is in place while the Haiti Partnership Committee moves toward eventual construction.Haiti also was hit hard in 2016 by Hurricane Matthew, which left 546 dead and an estimated $2.8 billion in damage in the country. This year, the series of severe hurricanes that barreled through the Caribbean disrupted farm operations in Haiti, but the island was spared a direct hit from the storms.Political protests, meanwhile, have been escalating recently over tax hikes. Demonstrators damaged buildings and set cars on fire in a September protest that took aim at the administration of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, according to Reuters.In addition to delaying the grand opening event until December, church leaders postponed a partnership engagement meeting and a meeting of the board of directors.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province

first_imgThursday Sep 2, 2010 Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province Despite an early start to the Currie Cup, Western Province have now lost two on the trot, first to the Sharks, and then this past weekend going down 29-24 to the Cheetahs. It was a good win for the visitors, with this try being the best from the match at Newlands in Cape Town.This week there wont be a best tries mix from the Currie Cup as in all honesty, there werent that many amazing tries scored. I figured this was the best from this particular match though, as it had some wonderful handling and support play from all the guys involved.The Cheetahs put pressure on WP all night with their rush defence, and as you can see here, the policy of staying in their faces reaped rewards.“It was special, especially because it was at Newlands,” said coach Naka Drotske.“Weve lost matches this season this season that we could have won so Im very glad were pulled this one through. Discipline was important, and it was something we knew because they have a kicker like Willem de Waal.”A Frikkie Welsh fumble allowed Sevens star Robert Ebersohn to draw in a couple of tacklers and free up Meyer Bosman, who combined nicely with Kabamba Floors (pictured above) before the support arrived, eventually allowing rapid winger Jongi Nokwe to stroll over for a neatly taken try.

After many years of having designed the Fasano Hotel in the Jardins Neighbourhood, we were invited to design the interiors of Fasano’s new mixed-use development in the Itaim region. Recognized worldwide as a family operation offering gastronomy and hospitality at their best, Fasano’s history spans more than 100 years, with locations in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Belo Horizonte, fazenda boa vista, Angra dos reis and Punta del Este, in Uruguay.Save this picture!© André KlotzThis new development, a complex with hotel, bars, restaurants and residential apartments will offer the excellence that has made Fasano a renowned name both in brazil and internationally. The single tower of four suite apartment has its interiors designed by Studio MK27. We strived to keep the identity and heritage of the Fasano brand as we designed this project, located in an increasingly dynamic, youthful neighborhood.Save this picture!© André KlotzThe use of natural materials such as slate shard floors, wooden strip ceiling, and walls covered with walnut panels generate a cozy atmosphere in the apartment. The space is well-lit by a floor-to-ceiling pane of glass joining the living room to the terrace. The opposite wall is covered by a shelving unit and an Armani griz marble fireplace separating the social from the private areas. The double linen and macramé curtains filter and balance the chiaroscuro (use of darkness and light) between the natural light and the dark surfaces of the panels and furniture.Save this picture!© André KlotzThe living room has 3 areas organized by neutral colored rugs which mark off the different activities and moments: one corner for the more intimate fireplace, the true living room and the dining room, connected to the gourmet kitchen. Each layout has floor lamps, sofas and armchairs, side and coffee tables which create a rich dynamic between volumes and textures. Modern pieces of Brazilian design such as the Pétala coffee table by Jorge Zalszupin are mixed with contemporary counterparts such as the dining table by Jader Almeida and the international classics such as Isamo Nogushi’s floor lamp, Finnish architect Alvar Alto’s floor lamp, and the light pendants over the dining table by the American architect George Nelson.Save this picture!© André KlotzThe continuous circulation around the apartment follows the same vibe as the materials and is punctuated by some sculptural sconces.

Guide Dogs launches Spring cash appeal

However, with each partnership costing approximately £35,000 and a guide dog’s working life limited to around seven years, we urgently need funds to enable us to help more people.”“This campaign satisfies the emotional and rational needs of Guide Dogs’ donors, said Sarah Don-Bramah, Account Director at TDA. “We know that the charity’s supporters tend to be dog owners themselves – they love to hear about the remarkable partnerships between partially-sighted or blind people and their guide dogs, but a solid case is required to prompt them to give an extra cash donation. Lora’s positive attitude and plans for her future will resonate well with the target audience.”The mail pack will be sent to existing supporters only and includes a ‘thank you’ gift of a bookmark featuring photos of Lora and Libby.

TREKSTOR Donates 100.000 FFP2 Respirators to Tafel Deutschland e.V.

first_img TAGS  Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Facebook BENSHEIM, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– Today the TREKSTOR GmbH, the manufacturer behind the blnk branded healthcare products, completed delivery of 100.000 FFP2 class respirators to the Tafel Deutschland. This is a reaction to the increased demand for certified PPE products created by both decisions of the federal government as well as the FFP2 mandate active in the state of Bavaria. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210128005522/en/ A volunteer at Tafel Bayern takes possession of and inspects the donated FFP2 respirators. (Photo: Business Wire) „As a German company, which mainly exists today due to the sales of entry-level PCs and tablets to price-sensitive customers in the past, we are aware of our responsibility to our fellow citizens“, Shimon Szmigiel, CEO of TREKSTOR, explains. „Many of them are lagging the financial prowess to purchase high quality protective equipment, a state that is worsened by lay-offs and short-time work arrangements.” Therefore, TREKSTOR decided on short notice to donate 50.000 packs containing 2 pcs of its own blnk brand model BL-03N FFP2 respirators, which are normally sold to government, hospital and care facilities. As do all FFP2 respirators, it filters ≥94% of particles, in the COVID-19 relevant comparison with NaCL, the masks even performed above the 99% mark. „The selection of Tafel Deutschland as our partner was very easy“, adds Shimon Szmigiel. This is due to existing infrastructure and experience when it comes to distributing food, which makes the Tafel to a unique distribution network. Based on the agreement, the respirators were delivery to a central warehouse in Nurnberg and will from there be distributed to the 168 locations in Bavaria according to demand. Jochen Brühl, Chairman of Tafel Deutschland: „We are delighted for this wonderful support. People in poverty are especially affected by this crisis. As important as the mask mandate is, it is a financial burden for poor people. Around 1.6 million people rely on our food banks, among them 430.000 retirees and up to 500.000 children and youths. The donation by TREKSTOR helps them to protect themselves while also relieving some of the financial pressure. For that, we are very thankful.“ TREKSTOR is aware, that this donation is literally only a drop in the ocean, which is why Shimon Szmigiel appeals to all other businesses: “If you are active in the same areas we are – or if you are not, take heart, temporarily forget about profit, and do something good.” About TREKSTOR / blnk Healthcare TREKSTOR, known as one of Europe’s leading consumer electronics manufacturers based in Bensheim, Germany, has been active in the healthcare space with its brand blnk starting March 2020, helping to stop the spread of the virus via face masks, disinfectants and other protective equipment. The company is selling equally to government institutions and the army alongside direct sales to care facilities, hospitals, pharmacies, and end-consumers. About Tafel Deutschland e.V.
