CHINA HAS KILLED 400 MILLION CHILDREN BY THE ONE-CHILD POLICY

A forced abortion imposed to a seven months pregnant woman, to meet the “one-child policy” has caused strong indignation in China.

The officials who ordered that termination of pregnancy, were arrested after the mother hung on Internet a spooky image of the fetus, totally covered in blood, lying next to her in the hospital bed, where Feng Jianmei, the 27-year-old mother forced to terminate pregnancy was admitted. In China some 400 million children have been killed through abortion to control overpopulation.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists, illustrious professional institution in the UK, has made a significant change in its guidance on the link between abortion and mental health.

The abortion leads to a significant danger to the mental health of women and the Royal College of Psychiatrists recommended guidance on these dangers to women seeking abortions. It encourages the production of publications that discuss episodes of desperation after an abortion because “there can be no informed consent, if adequate information is not provided.”

In 2008 the actress Emma Beck, a young British artist of 30 years, who had a twin pregnancy and aborted, committed suicide by hanging himself shortly. He left his relatives a pathetic letter: “Living is hell for me. I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum. I told everyone I didn’t want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies – they need me, no one else does.”

Given this and other events, the scholar Peter Saunders, general secretary of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said: “How can a doctor now justify an abortion for reasons of mental health, a reason cited for more than 90% of the more than 200,000 annual abortions performed in Britain? “

“A society that boasts of its social policies should better protect the defenseless and the defense of life is a ‘moral obligation’ that the government should support,” said Francisco Gil Hellin.

IN THE WORLD THERE ARE NOW MORE THAN 600 MILLION HUNGRY PEOPLE

Manos Unidas, the Catholic Church Association in Spain for aid, promotion and development of the Third World, has launched a campaign under the slogan “A New World” “Common Project”.

Moreover AMREF, the largest international health organization completely of African origin and management, which name is the acronym for African Medical and Research Foundation, has launched another campaign against infectious diseases.

The AMREF team consists of 850 professionals (97% of them in Africa), working in the offices of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Africa. There are planned, directed, analyzed and performed all the projects that focus on AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and sexually transmitted diseases.

Hunger also is producing real havoc among the population. The most affected area is sub-Saharan Africa. In Somalia the situation is critical. A staggering 925 million malnourished people, according to a report by FAO, the UN Agency for Food, are suffering the consequences of the delay in achieving the first of the Millennium Development Goals: halving the hunger in the world in this year 2015.

Moreover, a recent UN report states that Eastern and Central Africa have a chronic crisis that requires efforts beyond emergency aid. Long-term structural reforms are needed.

In Mauritania “only children eat breakfast, the older have switched from three to two meals a day or a meal”. “But our main problem is water.” The loading and transporting animals must travel about five kilometers to the Gorgol river. The Government has launched an urgent plan to try to ensure food and potable water.

Pope Benedict XVI, in a speech addressed to the 174 ambassadors accredited to the Holy See countries said “with half of what is spent on armaments, we could eradicate hunger in the world.”

“Poverty is a great enemy to human happiness; it certainly destroys liberty, and it makes some virtues impracticable, and others extremely difficult”, said the English writer Samuel Johnson.

GRANDPARENTS RAISING THEIR GRANDCHILDREN LEAVE TRACES IN THEIR SOULS

A study entitled The Generation of Transition; between Work and Retirement, states that thousands of years ago, the family model “included not only a father and a mother who took care of good parenting; there was also a grandmother who helped them in this task.”

Grandparents work as health, guardians and teachers of their grandchildren. They allow many moms to be integrated into the labor market. Some families are going better, thanks to grandparents. And in times of economic instability, these gestures are more important.

One of the most worrying census data, in America, is the growing number of children who have to be supported by their grandparents 2.4 million grandparents are responsible for the training of 4.4 million grandchildren. The Economist reported that a third of these grandparents, householders, had not completed high school and 62% had not gone to university. 70% exceeded 50 years of age, while 70% of children had about 11 years.

The African American community is the hardest hit. For people under 18 in the United States, 70.9% of those who are children of the household head are white and 13.3% black. However, in the case of the grandchildren of the household head, only 48.6% are white and 32.3% are black.

The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry explains the causes of this overhead for grandparents: increase in single-parent families, high divorce rate, teenage pregnancy, parental incapacitation by imprisonment, alcoholism, drug use and domestic violence.

Grandparents face a greater mental and physical wear, especially because they deal with difficult children from broken or troubled homes. Stress and fatigue related to work that originates responsibility are the main symptoms of the “slave grandmother” syndrome.

There are programs to help grandparents who have to educate their grandchildren. The most requested service is an allowance so they can hire a temporary assistant during the holidays. Apart from these grants, we should erect a monument to grandparents.

MARQ OUTLINES PLANS FOR TEN EXCAVATION SITES

It is said to be one of the most comprehensive and rigorous programmes ever carried out in the Region

Not everyone appreciates or is even aware of the work that the Archaeological Museum of Alicante (MARQ) carry out on local archeological sites with most people thinking that the operation is centred purely on the Alicante museum.

However just last week the institution announced details of its annual plan of excavations for 2015 saying that between May and September it will operate ten archaeological sites in the province involving about 120 volunteers from student groups to graduates in History and Archaeology.

And not all will be Spanish with many being drawn into the region from universities in the USA, UK and South America.

A spokesman for the museum said that the objective is to pursue the investigation of prehistory, Iberian culture, Roman and medieval-modern history at a number of strategic points in the province.

The team of archaeologists from Alicante museum sites will operate at Cabezo Pardo and Cabezo de los Ojales in San Isidro, Granja de Rocamora and Albatera; the slopes of the castle in Callosa de Segura; la Cova del Randero in Pedreguer; Cova de l’Or in Beniarrés; el Penyal d’Ifach in Calpe; la Bahía de l’Albufereta and el Tossal de Manises in Alicante; l’Illeta dels Banyets in El Campello; Barranco del Juncaret in Mutxamel and la parcela (plot) 604 of the Industrial estate 16 in Monforte del Cid.

The Deputy Councillor for Culture, Juan Bautista Rosello, said that the program of archaeological excavations “is considered by professionals as one of the most comprehensive and rigorous in the Region, both for the number of historical periods covered, and for the vast area that it covers”.

To carry out these tasks the operation will be provided with logistical support from the municipalities of Callosa de Segura, Calpe, Pedreguer and Monforte del Cid as a result of by several bilateral agreements with the local councils and the Provincial government of Alicante.

The deputy, aalso went on to thank the work of the many volunteers who will be drafted in to help with these tasks, while also getting hands-on training that will provide them with greater exphat will better equip them in their future professional activities.

Work at the Cabezo Pardo and Cabezo de los Ojales sites in San Isidro will be concentrated above ground while that on the slopes of the Callosa Castle will be concentrated in the lower zones where it is hoped to complete exhumations from the Bronze Age

The prehistoric cave la Cova del Randero in Pedreguer will see work continue in the central gallery and the entrance while in the Cova de l’Or (Neolithic) volunteers will attempt to complete the mapping of the entire fissure.

The Penyal d’Ifach, one of the most strategic points in the province and this will be the eleventh season of excavations in the Natural Park

In the Bay of Alicante the work will consist of underwater exploration and mapping of an Underwater Archaeological Chart, while in the Tossal de Manises the objective will be to locate the West Gate of the old city, located on the side of the reservoir that descends to the sea.

Finally, the Barranco del Juncaret will see the archaeological documentation of the few preserved remains of a Roman cistern, while the Industrial area 16 Monforte will see excavations carried out on an adjoining plot discovered an ancient cemetery dating back to Iberian times.

Alicante Provincial Council have said that they will allocate a total of 119,500 euros to supplement the archaeological work in order to provide better documentation of the findings.

The work will get underway in May, with the collaboration of the CV MARQ Foundation. Also involved will be the Architecture Council of Alicante which will help to coordinate the work and the health and safety aspects of the activities being carried out on the ten different sites

THE IVORIAN VANESSA KOUTOUAN RECEIVES THARAMBEE AWARD FOR PROMOTION AND EQUALITY FOR AFRICAN WOMEN 2015

Teresa of Bourbon Two Sicilies (pictured), Marquise de Laserna and President of Honor of the NGO Harambee Spain, has awarded Vanessa Koutouan (pictured) with the Harambee Award for the promotion and equality of African women 2015.

The winner is an Ivorian woman with university education and business profile who decided to turn her work in a school of solidarity with her neighbors, leading the Rural Center Ilomba in M’Batto-Bouaké, a town with lots of children and young people, without schools or health clinics.

The winner works in Ilomba with hundreds of young people “who do not know that they can have an autonomous and independent future in a society that, by ancestral customs, relegates women to their homes by depriving them of education, because families consider that educate them is a waste of time and money”, reported Koutuan.

Her commitment is to prepare these young Ivorian to have a job that allows them to survive without resorting to forced marriage for economic reasons.

Specifically, professional training courses in areas such as fashion, hospitality, and accounting and business management are taught from Ilomba “because these are the sectors in which they will find a job easier”.

The rapid job opportunity is not always the primary goal. As Koutouan notes, “some of these girls get through to secondary education, and we try that some of them may also access the University”.

Anyway, the girls who attend this training center get “be autonomous, ensure their independence, and dispose of their own lives.”

Ilomba also promotes literacy among adult women in the area and provides, through a medical clinic, health care in a population characterized by suffering a mortality rate of 20% among children under five years.

With the amount of Harambee Award a secondary school will be promoted in this region of Africa where schooling is very precarious. According to Koutouan, the commitment of Ilomba is not that African women just survive, but to live with dignity and to develop professionally, “because in this corner of Ivory Coast, good work is valued, but we still lack basic resources”.

Vanessa Koutoan highlighted the positive values in Africa and noted that she would export to Europe, among others, “the ability to be happy with what you have and to enjoy the work.”

Since it was created in 1992, Harambee has driven more than 50 projects in 17 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, with 300,000 beneficiaries and promoted 39 educational programs. Currently it promotes other projects in Nigeria, Congo and Ivory Coast.
