Massinvasion av gräshoppor2020-04-20Stora delar av Östafrika hårt drabbat.Invasionen av gräshoppor började i Somalia och Etiopien och är mycket ödesdiger. Gräshopporna kommer i stora svärmar och plundrar alla grödor i sin väg. Invasionen tros kulminera i maj och FN har upprepade gånger varnat om att miljoner människor står inför en hungerkatastrof.Bild: TT– Vi förutspår det värsta. Skadorna som gräshopporna för med sig är värre än vad vi kunnat tänka oss. Läget i Etiopien är som mest utsatt i södra och sydöstra delarna, säger Deed Jaldessa från EFS samarbetspartner DASSC, en del av Mekane Yesuskyrkan. – Vi följer utvecklingen och ser över hur EFS skulle kunna hjälpa till i denna ödesdigra situation, säger Anna Claesson, projekthandläggare på EFS internationella avdelning.http://budbararen.nu/artikel/massinvasion-av-grashoppor/

Bringing Women Back To Life: The Dr Catherine Hamlin Story

No Filter

Imagine being ousted from your community, from your family, your whole life, because of a condition you'd developed during childbirth. A condition that most Australian women can have fixed relatively quickly and easily.  Dr Catherine Hamlin wasn't having any of that. She and her husband created the legendary Hamlin Fistula Hospital and began saving women's lives back in the 1960s.  Over her sixty years in Africa, Catherine became a national treasure of Ethiopia and Australia and we didn't want her recent death to pass without remembering her remarkable life. Her niece, Dr Alison Morgan, was so inspired by her Aunty Cath, she had a career in women's health medicine herself, and she's with us to tell us the story of Catherine's incredible legacy.  LINKS:Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation website Dr Catherine Hamlin Tribute Page CREDITS: Host: Mia Freedman .
