Very Sad We are devastated 💔 We lost Fausto, one of our Croce Rossa Italiana - Italian Red Cross volunteers, to #COVID19. He joined our family in 1998 & volunteered even during these difficult times, in one of the highest-risk areas, in the frontlines against this invisible enemy. Our ❤️ are with his loved ones.

The ongoing field exercise was jointly organized by the Lagos state Government and WHO to gather information with on line apps through interaction with members of various communities in Lagos with a view to assist them in action to combat the spread of corona virus and also identify index contact tracing of people/ communities where the virus has reached. This program will run for 10 days,hiccups should be expected at the early stage but as we progressed a lot of the issues would be addressed. Hostilities being experienced from some areas was as a result of LASG poor handling of the Food response program, but security operatives have been sent to such areas to calm people and sensitized them on the importance of the information gathering exercise. The result of the exercise is the yardistic to be used to determine the next line of action government would take on whether to extend the lock down or not and to plan further strategy to combat COVID 19. Whatever the challenges, we all have a duty either as Red Cross members or citizens of this country to help government in combating the scourge of COVID 19.
/ CBS NEWS Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced fired two more government officials Sunday over the latest controversy involving unused emergency supplies discovered in a warehouse in the coastal city of Ponce. Some of the supplies — including water bottles, cots and baby food — date to when Hurricane Maria struck the island in 2017. Housing Secretary Fernando Gil and Department of Family Secretary Glorimar Andújar were let go one day after the governor fired Carlos Acevedo, the Puerto Rican commissioner of the National Emergency Management and Disaster Relief Agency. A Facebook Live video showing the untouched supplies recently went viral, prompting an investigation which led to the firings. Some of the aid has allegedly been sitting in the warehouse since Maria pummeled Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane two years ago. Following the publication of the video, some residents of the island raided the warehouse.

She had ordered an investigation into the warehouse of supplies and nominated Puerto Rican National Guard chief Major General José J. Reyes to replace Acevedo. Puerto Rico emergency supplies in Ponce warehouse A woman carries boxes of baby diapers from warehouse filled with supplies, including thousands of cases of water, believed to have been from when Hurricane Maria struck the island in 2017 in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on January 18, 2020, after a powerful earthquake hit the island. RICARDO ARDUENGO / GETTY Vázquez met earlier Sunday with members of her administration and they were unable to provide information she had requested about other collection and distribution centers, according to The Associated Press. She didn't elaborate on firing Gil and Andújar, but said she had lost confidence in them. "There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to help those in the south, and it is unforgivable that resources were kept in the warehouse," Vázquez said in a statement Sunday. BREAKING: Puerto Rico's Governor: “We have taken rigorous measures so that this does not happen again.” She's talking about warehouses of aid that weren't being emptied to help people displaced by earthquakes as Samaritans were driving/flying from near & far to deliver supplies. — David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) January 19, 2020 On Sunday, Ponce Mayor María Meléndez expressed her dismay at the situation. "I spent several days requesting cots and water," Meléndez said. "They sent me to Cabo Rojo for the cots and to San Juan for the water. If I had known that those supplies were there, I would have demanded that they be taken out immediately." When Vázquez was asked about not knowing the supplies were at the warehouse, she replied, "That's what the head of agencies are for ... to inform the governor." CBS News interview with Major General José J. Reyes CBS News correspondent David Begnaud interviewed Reyes, the head of the Puerto Rico national guard, on Sunday. Reyes revealed what's being done to distribute aid currently stored at warehouses across the island and information about the contracts that were signed. Reyes also addressed the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the U.S. government paid themselves essentially to store that aid in "secret." "No citizen has been denied any of the items" Acevedo said on Saturday that it was "insane" to imply the aid was mishandled. Acevedo said in a statement that after the earthquake, the warehouse had been inspected by a structural engineer who "recommended emptying it due to the damage suffered after the event." According to Acevedo, the Fire Department Bureau removed and distributed aid from the warehouse to those affected by the earthquakes. "There are still pallets of food, water, diapers, and baby formula, cots and awnings in the warehouse. At no time has it been ordered to seize or destroy those items," reads his statement.

RICARDO ARDUENGO / GETTY "It is of utmost importance to emphasize that no citizen has been denied any of the items stored at the warehouse," he said. "At the moment there is no shortage of any of these articles and they are being distributed to the people who need it, this may be corroborated in the shelters and base camps." "The citizen who entered the property today, and shared the images on social networks, violated the security perimeter, which in turn, represented a risk for him. For this reason he was instructed to leave the area. Any personnel entering that structure, which is compromised, requires specific security measures to ensure their safety." A 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit Puerto Rico on December 28, kicking off a series of seismic events on the island. More than 2,000 tremors have occurred since the original quake, leaving the island's three million people in fear, and wanting for aid. Puerto Ricans were waiting to see if President Trump would sign a major disaster declaration to authorize the much needed aid. Nine days after Vázquez submitted the request, the president signed the declaration. One day prior, the Trump administration released $8.2 billion in heavily restricted aid to the island. Thousands of people are still in shelters, while many others are still sleeping outside.
SINGAPORE - The Republic dispatched a second round of humanitarian aid, including medical supplies, to China on Wednesday (Feb 19). Singapore ambassador to China Lui Tuck Yew handed over the country's humanitarian assistance to People's Liberation Army General Hospital Medical Service Department deputy head Zhang Fu in Beijing. The assistance was to help communities severely affected by the coronavirus outbreak in China, and help efforts to contain the virus, said Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairson Thursday. It was sent on Singapore Airlines flight SQ802. This follows an earlier dispatch of humanitarian assistance by the Singapore Government to Wuhan on Scoot flight TR5120 on Feb 8. In his discussion with Chinese Vice-Premier Han Zheng on Feb 7, Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat explained that the humanitarian assistance from the Republic was part of a collective effort to help communities in China affected by the virus. The aid included fund-raising efforts by the Singapore Red Cross, with support from Singapore's trade associations and chambers, companies and local community organisations. The Singapore Red Cross sent $2.26 million worth of aid to China as part of the first phase of relief efforts to contain the coronavirus outbreak in the country, the charity said on Wednesday.

As part of of our efforts to minimize the effect of the lockdown as a result of Covid 19 pandemic, Nigerian Red Cross Lagos State Branch distributed food stuffs to 250 vulnerable households within Makoko Community today Saturday 25th April, 2020. The distribution was flagged off by the former President of Nigerian Red Cross and Committee Chairman, Lagos State Branch Covid 19 Intervention Committee, Mr. Emmanuel Ijewere ably assisted and supported by the Branch Chairman, Mrs. Adebola Kolawole and other members of the committee. Food items that would last a family of 6 for at least a week were distributed. The vulnerable beneficiaries of the intervention were identified and registered appropriately for the intervention after due community assessment. Top on the list of people who benefited from the distribution are the Aged, Widows, People living with disability, Pregnant women, Child parent etc. Items distributed per family are: BAGS OF RICE, BEANS, GARRI , SACHETS OF SALTS and PALM OIL. Makoko community is one among so many identified vulnerable communities but due to scarcity of resources at the moment, Lagos State Branch of Nigerian Red Cross decided to source for funds within and address the issue of hunger occasioned by the lockdown. We like to appeal for support and collaboration with people and spirited organizations for us to be able to reach more people through this intervention.
