If you're happy and you know it.... Wash your hands!!   (published in Nepal)

December 11, 2013 by   Comments(0)

På Chitwan Medical College Teaching Hospital arrangerer en gruppe læger og sygeplejersker jævnligt ‘childrens health camps’ på skoler i Chitwan. Her foretager de gratis sundhedstjek på børnene og måler og vejer dem. De havde inviteret 10 af os frivillige med, og ville have os til at undervise børnene i tandbørstning og håndvask. Jeg kom på håndvaskeholdet. Da vi ankom til skolen ved 9.30-tiden var børnene lige mødt ind og løb rundt i skolegården og synes at det var vildt spændende at så mange fremmede, hvide mennesker var kommet til deres skole. Da klokken ringede ind, kunne vi sidde og drikke en kop te og forberede undervisningen. Vi havde følgende til rådighed: en skolegård, en vandpumpe, en plasticspand med tilhørende kande, tre stykker sæbe og to håndklæder.

Vi startede med at undervise de 6-8-årige. De kom ud til os i skolegården og dannede en cirkel rundt om os. Med skilte og små rollespil viste vi børnene 4 klare eksempler på hvornår det især er vigtigt at vaske sine hænder: før måltider, efter toiletbesøg, når man er syg og hoster/nyser og når man har tydeligt beskidte hænder.  Herefter demonstrerede vi hvordan korrekt håndvask skal udføres og børnene kunne selv prøve bagefter. Vi dannede to håndvaskerhold; et ved vandpumpen og et ved plasticspanden. De var gode til at deles om sæbestykkerne og de to håndklæder og vi roste dem meget undervejs.  Sådan kørte det i to timer med 4 klasser indtil frokost. Herefter underviste vi ...

Good Afternoon All!!!

This time I want to share with all of you some pictures of the Christmas Festival we had in Liberia city last Saturday 7th. 

This Festival is celebrated each year on December, ad this year 2013 was no the  exception. Liberia has the opportunity to see around the city the presentation of different musical bands from different cities of  our country and out of the country as well. Thi time we had groups of Nicragua, Honduras and more. All the bands showed ud an exceptional  presentation and we are very proud as a Liberian citizen to have had their company and participation. Hope next year can be just as beautiful and even better.

Nearly Dying part 1   (published in Argentina)

December 10, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Right, hi again, sorry I never do this but if you had a choice between sitting on your ass in front of a computer typing or chilling with friends in a bar in the summer of Cordoba, you would all choose the second option. On the 23rd of November it was my birthday and it was also like 32 C, which was weird as usually it's like 8 C on my birthday. It was also the birthday of a good friend called Lea on the 22nd so we had like 3-4 days of celebrations. Because of this, I cannot really tell you what happened as it is all a kind of blur but I will tell you the details I remember. On the 21st at like 10 we met in a bar and counted down until Lea's birthday, we then went to a club I think and then the memory ends. I wake up in my house (result!) at like 6pm. We then meet at a friends house at like 10 and there was cake and alcohol and other stuff. The cake was good. At like 2 am we went to a club and I remember this as it cost 100 FUCKING PESOS TO GET IN. I remember things if they are expensive. We left at like 6 am, ate a McDonald's (best McDonald's I've ever had) and my memory cuts to like 3 of us lying in the park at like 3 pm. Went home, slept for like 5 hours! drank like a lorry load of red bull and went out again on the Saturday night. honestly can't tell you much. I remember what club we went not but not what we did before. Woke up in someone's house, watched the Ireland New Zealand game (one of the best games I've seen) then went home and hibernated for 2 days. I could barely speak or move, I felt like a sloth. Amazingly I didn't lose my keys, wallet or phone (again!) and I don't think I was stabbed or assaulted so it was a good weekend. After that I went to chile for 10 days but I'll write about that in the next post as I can smell pizza, and it smells GOOOOD.

Kerststandje BBC SPIE Izegem: Vrijwilligerswerk Sri Lanka Dries & Isabelle   (published in Sri Lanka)

December 10, 2013 by   Comments(0)

Hallo iedereen!

Wij (Dries en Isabelle) vertrekken op 5 januari 2014 richting Sri Lanka om er ons enkele weken als vrijwilliger in te zetten. In samenwerking met Projects Abroad worden we tewerkgesteld in twee verschillende projecten. In het eerste project helpen we leerlingen van de 'Singithi Pre-School'. In de tweede opdracht dragen we ons steentje bij in het weeshuis 'Prasanna Children's Home', gelegen in Negombo (dichtbij Colombo, de hoofdstad). We zullen ons vooral inzetten voor kwetsbare kinderen tussen 3 en 16 jaar. 

Om ons project te steunen is iedereen welkom op zaterdag 14 december 2013 (vanaf 16u) op ons kerststandje onder de cafetaria van 't Sok in Kachtem (Hogestraat 15). We hebben heel wat jenever, glühwein, warme chocomelk, hotdogs en wafeltjes voorzien waarvan jullie kunnen genieten voor, tijdens en na de wedstrijden van BBC SPIE Izegem. 

PS: Wij zamelen ook tal van spulletjes in om mee te nemen naar Sri Lanka voor kinderen tussen de 3 en 16 jaar, zoals een voetbal, puzzels, stickers, potloden, stiften, kleurboeken, engelstalige leesboeken, kurken, penselen, bellenblazers, ballonen, enz. (geen kleren). Als jullie iets kunnen missen, kunnen jullie dit zaterdag meebrengen. Aarzel niet om ons hierover te contacteren.Niet alleen wij zullen er blij mee zijn, het zijn vooral de kinderen in Sri Lanka die jullie hiermee plezier doen.

“We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.”

Hopelijk tot zaterdag!

Dries & Isabelle

An Uninvited Tent Visitor   (published in Botswana)

December 10, 2013 by   Comments(0)

This morning, I got up very early, went to the kitchen for breakfast and then came back to the tent. Tada! There he was, a special guest to our bed.. a scorpion! He was very small, but still venomous. Carefully, the staff managed to catch him in a packet and bring him out of the tent to the bush where he belongs. Nice!

At 630am, the morning activity started. Vegetaion Census! On our way to the site, the car got a flat tyre, so AB had to change it. He managed it. And we were off again! During the morning, we saw zebras, impalas, steenbok, wildebeest (my favourite) and we found the track of a huge snake by a waterhole! Of course, we also saw a lot of trees for the census, including Mopane!

 

The afternoon activity was an anti-poaching walk/drive. We found a lot of holes had been cut in the fence between the wildlife and community land. We also found another 20 snares around the same area as we had found them last week. We took them out and will be back again to look for more!

The afternoon turned quite funny because after we had collected the snares, we found a lot of cows! The activity now became chasing the cows! We herded them back out of the veterinary fence into the community area where they belong!

Tess/Dave thanks sooo much! I have had such a wonderful time!
