Continuous Fight Against COVID-19: Health Campaign in Public Secondary Schools in Ivory Coast (West Africa)



Bronx, Aug 1, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Youth Enlightened African (YEA) Movement, a non-profit organization, initiated by young Africans solely dedicated to addressing African matters, has recently participated in the continuous fight against the coronavirus pandemic by launching a hand-washing campaign in public secondary schools in Côte d'Ivoire. The project is implemented as a response to the virus' potential hazardous effect against the students in Ivory Coast (West Africa).

Realizing that the African educational system will continue to function regardless of the dangers brought by the infectious virus' existence, the YEA Movement itself has decided to assist the students in their safety directly. They spearheaded the hand-washing campaign as the first of the many safety projects planned and will be initiated by the organization.

Complimentary and true to the organization's principles and mission of aiming to nurture the young, vibrant, and brilliant African population. The campaign was launched as a prevention effort intended to try and protect the African youth as much as possible from the vulnerabilities and looming threats posed by the coronavirus.

Considering the growing number of infected people gradually increasing day by day, along with the current minimal level of global progress, humanity has made in developing a cure. The need for implementing consistent safety efforts and measures is at an all-time high, especially for the young, whose immune system is even more vulnerable alongside the elderly.

With the recent campaign itself having been labeled as a success by the end of it, the students from these said public secondary schools were able to wash their hands before their respective scheduled exams thoroughly--all the necessary resources and materials needed for this project being already provided by the organization.

Additionally, joining the spirit of actively advocating for the implementation of COVID-19 precautionary measures in schools, the organization also gave the students individual mufflers and hydro-alcoholic gels that the students can take home, and may use to further shield themselves from ever catching the virus. Volunteers gave these materials with the intent to equip the students with an armor of some sort.

It is in this light that the YEA organization will push through with even more projects aimed towards accommodating the African youth. The projects of which will be made sure to turn out successful and sustainable at the end of every implementation. So the whole African population can expect an overall, very active YEA Movement, and a lot of campaigns to come out from this group.

With not much progress on the vaccine in sight, the organization will, therefore, continue to work on other preventive measures that they can implement as a non-profit group. The fight against COVID-19 is one that is admittedly tedious and grueling. But nevertheless, even with just these simple and basic efforts being made, the fight is on-going with no announced and fixed victor yet.

The opportunity to retaliate and eventually beat the coronavirus pandemic is still a possibility, and it is in humanity's best bet that we invest in prevention instead of restoration or compensation. With this in mind, let the fight be continuous than not.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Aug 13, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Aug 13, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Aug 13, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Aug 13, 2020

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Aug 13, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...
