High we exalt thee, realm of the free; Great is the love we have for thee; Firmly united ever we stand, Singing thy praise, O native land. We raise up our hearts and our voices on high, The hills and the valleys re-echo our cry; Blessing and peace be ever thine own, Land that we love, our Sierra Leone. EBOLA MUST GO!!!!!!

Sierra Leone is currently on a 3 day lockdown (19-22nd September). I believe the aim is to slow down the transmission rate and also to educate the public. The government, aid workers and volunteers will be going door to door to educate the people. I really hope this helps.
This will be a tough 3 days for many in Sierra Leone, the majority of the population is poor and live on a day to day basis. the government and foreign aid that has been provided should help some people cope for the duration of the lockdown. However this is a time for the wealthier Sierra Leoneans to step up and help out their neighbours and fellow country men and women.
On a side note, my mother now has whatsapp and she’s going to provide me with updates of the family ‘staying at home’ in Freetown..Exciting times *Sarcasm*.
Please keep West Africa in your prayers and hope this disease is eradicated soon.

  5. Uni next week!!

    I am excited as well as apprehensive.

    I hope the first couple of days are not ridiculously awkward; meeting new people and being in a learning environment again.

    i need to buy a bicycle this weekend as i live very near to the uni but way too far to walk and wasteful to get public transport or drive (and have to pay for parking)

  7. "But as Ebola spreads, pharmaceutical giants are sitting this one out. That’s mainly because treating a disease that affects a relatively small number of people who typically don’t have a lot of money doesn’t offer a great return on investment for profit-driven companies, experts told The Huffington Post Tuesday. It’s unclear how much profit it would take to get Big Pharma interested in finding an Ebola cure, but right now such a project could well be a money-loser, they said."

    The Huff Po

    In case you don’t believe that institutional racism is a thing, let me point to the general lack of interest in finding good, affordable treatments for hemorrhagic fevers by the people with the funding and infrastructure to make a difference relatively quickly. Fucking sociopathic wankers.

    I Am Slave (watch in full)*

    a heart-wrenching film about a woman enslaved through the Arab slave trade for 6 years. based on the autobiographical book entitled Slave:My True Story by Mende Nazer. 

    this is one of the few films i can find about the experience of Africans that have gone through the Arab slave trade. even more disturbing is the fact that Mende was captured in 1993 in her Nuba village in Sudan. the film mentions that there are an estimated 5,000 women living as slaves in Britain alone. it also theorizes that Arabs are still raiding African villages for the purpose of slavery.
