Nigeria might suffer a heavy outbreak of Covid-19 if social distancing is not taken seriously.


There are confirmed cases of coronavirus infection currently in Nigeria. The Covid-19 outbreak is spreading rapidly. Countries have taken strict measures by implementing social distancing, closing down public places and informing their citizens about the importance of self-isolation. Nigeria is yet to even start any strong background of social distancing. Markets and public places are still very much functional in Nigeria.

Ukraine shuts down schools from 13th of March 2020 (3 WEEKS QUARANTINE). Foreign students are not allowed to travel. Possible ways to reduce the contact of Coronavirus.


It has been reported that starting from the 13th of March 2020, students in Ukraine are to stay indoors and start distance learning for 3 weeks. It was also said that foreign students will not be also allowed to travel outside Ukraine during the quarantine period.  This is due to the ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus in the world. It was announced today as it is said to help restrict the movement of people hereby reducing the spread of the virus. The suspected cases which have been reported currently in Kharkiv city Ukraine, are six students from China who were said to have been in contacts with a carrier of Coronavirus.
“Now patients have been placed in special boxes, and doctors are monitoring them. We specialize in respiratory infections and monitor them dynamically,” - Pavlo Nartov, head physician of the hospital, stated. News source.

While this quarantine is going on here are some ways to reduce your chances of contacting Coronavirus. If you are just hearing about Coronavirus for the very first time you might be wondering what coronavirus is, so here is a simplified definition of the virus.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness such as common cold to severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

Common signs of infection include Respiratory symptoms
 Shortness of breath
Breathing difficulties.

In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

The main aim of this article is to help outline the possible ways to reduce the contact of Coronavirus.

1. Reduce your movement.
 Those people who have already died from this virus, are just like you, with big dreams and life expectations. Some wished, they were more careful. Reduce your movement in this period. It doesn't matter if it has been confirmed in your city or not, remember it starts from just one person to another and it all depends on when they were able to detect it.

2. Wash your hand always.
This can not be overemphasized. Each time I advise people about the importance of washing your hands it seems like I am being bacteria phobic but the truth is that washing your hands reduces the risk of you contacting this virus. It takes nothing away from you to be more careful, always wash your hands before eating.

3. Stop opening public doors with your bare hands.
This is one of the easiest ways to contact diseases generally. Protect yourself as much as you can. Clean your hands as soon as you can because we always touch our face, mouth and our body in general.

4. Stop eating out at this time.
According to the World Health Organization, Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Sounds impossible but my dear you do not know the environment that food was prepared in. You do not know how well that meat was cooked. Besides, the world is full of wicked people, some people don't want to die alone. Be careful.

5. Disinfectant and wet wipes should be your buddy.
 Keep cleaning, keep disinfecting, let's be even more careful than before, it won't hurt, what will hurt is when you get infected and wish you had been more careful.

6. Travel less.
Seeing around the world can be so much fun but only when you are in good health. During travel, you meet a lot of people from different locations who have also met with different people during their travel. The airport isn't the best place to frequent at the moment, staying inside a flight for long hours with people isn't also the best idea even tho Turkish airlines have taken time out to put out safety precaution to all flyers which state that during every flight, the air in the cabin is refreshed constantly by air conditioning units equipped with hospital-grade, High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration systems. The air in the cabin is completely changed 15 to 30 times per hour as particles of dust and all known airborne bacteria and viruses are filtered. This ensures the highest possible quality of cabin air meaning this isn't 100% effective.

7. Stay away from crowded places.
This is not the time for a party after party. Let the party slide for now. Going to crowded places increases your risk of getting infected with Coronavirus.

8. Wash food items and disinfect products you purchase from stores and supermarkets.
This is very important because when shopping different people touch these items to view the prices or to check the details in these products. They touch these items and we do not know if they are carriers, so it is best that you wash food items including the packaged ones and also disinfect non-edible items when you get home.

9. Stop sharing utensils, drinks or items that require saliva exchange with friends and family
There’s not much evidence that the virus is transmitted through direct contact – like through sex, Vaisman said, though you might catch it if you kissed someone who was sick.

10. Report any suspected case
Remember we are in this together. Do not keep any symptoms to yourself. Report immediately.

NOTE !! 
If you stay with family, friends or a loved one, educate them also, because you are always in close contact with them. If they contact the virus in most cases you are most likely to get infected.

Only 49 out of Ukraine’s 219 border crossings will operate in order to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus. Read more.

I spent my Women's day with Lies and chills.


Результат пошуку зображень за запитом "surprise gif"
So after attending church service on Sunday, I decided to have a little merry to celebrate the women's day by going to a restaurant. I ate some potatoes, Caribbean chicken and waffles.

While sitting down after my meal and enjoying the calm cool music, two people walked into the restaurant, a beautiful lady and a man. They sat not too far from my table. After they sat down, the man introduced himself to the lady and she did introduce herself to him in return, and immediately I knew they were just meeting for the very first time. It didn't take up to a minute, the guy started talking about all the properties he owns, he said he has houses in California, Miami, Europe and that his company bought Viber,  he mentioned the name of the company to her and immediately I browsed the company that owns Viber and it was totally different from what he mentioned. He was really loud, I guess it's because Ukraine isn't an English speaking country so he didn't expect that anyone around could understand him.

I started feeling really bad for the lady. This is a Ukrainian lady but she could speak English. He didn't give her any audience to tell him about herself, he just kept on talking about properties, business meetings and travel experience.

What blew my head was when he said he came to Ukraine to take a Ukrainian princess and that he wants to marry her, like serious! !they were meeting for the first time. The lady hardly said a word. He did all the talking and even mentioned that he loves all the dishes in the world, he loves to learn languages and he will also like if she could come with him to India for a business meeting. I knew she was in for a disaster, it's either this was just a guy who wants her for sex or a guy who actually wants to take her to India for sex trade. (This is my opinion).

The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez is heartbreaking.


There is never a justification for child abuse of any form. The murder of Gabriel Fernandez was done coldly and preplanned in my opinion. He was exposed to repeated maltreatment with an end aim of death. The defendant claims it was out of anger but this has been done several times and this child has been tortured and stressed mentally. I always tell my friend, that family doesn't always mean connected by blood and this case has proven it, as Gabriel Fernandez, a child, helpless and with the heart of a child couldn't do anything but go through such ill-treatment from a man 10 times bigger than him who happens to be his mother's boyfriend. 

This is a documentary on Netflix that also exposed a failed system in America after everyone who was supposed to look into Gabriel's case failed him. He was killed by his mother's boyfriend.  This case is very sensitive and complicated as many people are being held responsible in connection to neglect for the death of Gabriel Fernandez. Gabriel was isolated from playing with his siblings and beaten regularly.

Gabriel is an eight-year-old boy from Palmdale, California. Watching this documentary broke my heart because I could feel that Gabriel had so many unanswered questions such as 
Does anybody love me?
Does my mum love me?
Where is my uncle?
Where is my teacher?
Why is this guy that calls himself my mother's boyfriend doing this to me?.
Sadly he got no answers before he left this cold world to his eternal resting place.

Gender Equality and Girls' Empowerment


Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable future. Worldwide, patriarchal gender norms and discrimination drive violence against women and girls.

Our vision is for a world where all girls and boys are equally heard and valued, where they have equitable access and time to devote to education, to work, to rest and to play. This is a world built on transformative change – to the dismantling of patriarchal, discriminatory gender norms and the inequalities they sustain. These norms affect both boys and girls but have a disproportionate impact on girls, preventing them from claiming their rights, exposing them to harmful practices, driving rights abuses in their homes, relationships and communities, and through embedded structural inequalities that shape their lives from childhood through adulthood. Some girls face even greater challenges due to multiple and intersecting forms of deprivation and marginalization based on poverty and characteristics such as ethnicity, displacement and location. The world we want is a world in which no girl faces gender-based discrimination, suffers violence or marries before her 18th birthday, and every last girl fully enjoys her right to be protected from harm, to learn, survive and thrive. Her world is one in which her aspirations know no limits and she is free to fulfil her potential, to have equal opportunities, to decide her own future and empower those around her.

When girls are educated, empowered, healthy and free from violence and discrimination, their communities are more prosperous and stable. Investing in gender equality is not just the right thing to do – it’s the smart thing to do. But girls around the world still face lifelong gender-based inequalities that begin in childhood:

Sexual and Gender-Based Violence:
Around 120 million girls worldwide (slightly more than 1 in 10) have experienced forced sex or other forced sexual acts. [1]
Girls represent nearly three out of every four child trafficking victims, with the majority trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation. [2]
By 2030, over 150 million more girls will marry before they are 18 - despite global progress. Today, the poorest girls are 4 times more likely to marry in childhood than the richest. [3]

Complications during pregnancy and childbirth are the number one cause of death of girls aged 15-19 worldwide. And 90% of births to girls aged 15-19 occur within marriage. [4]
Around three-fifths of all maternal deaths take place in humanitarian and fragile contexts. [5]
Every day, 507 women and adolescent girls die from pregnancy and childbirth complications in emergency settings. [6]
Malnutrition poses a variety of threats to women and girls specifically, including weakening their immune systems making them more susceptible to infections and impacting their capacity to survive childbirth. Children born of malnourished women and girls are more likely to have cognitive impairments and a higher risk of disease throughout their lives. [7] Adolescent girls are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition because of the increased rate at which they are growing and their bodies are changing. Adolescent girls need protein, iron, and other micronutrients to support this growth spurt and increased iron during menstruation.

130 million girls between the age of 6 and 17 are out of school. [8]
Girls are more likely than boys are to never set foot in a classroom. [9]
Girls living in countries affected by conflict are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school than boys are. And adolescent girls affected by conflict are 90% more likely to be out of school than girls living outside of conflict-affected contexts. [10]

Time deficit:
Girls account for two-thirds of all children who perform household chores for at least 21 hours per week. And girls are more likely than boys to perform double work duty- meaning both works in employment and in household chores. Research suggests chores that take up at least 21 hours or more a week negatively impact the ability of children to attend and benefit from school. [11]

Change is needed to ensure that girls are the drivers of their own futures.
To achieve these goals, Save the Children is committed to working with governments to end child marriage globally and to create the conditions where every girl has the opportunity to not only live but also to thrive and achieve her full potential. Save the Children is striving to ensure:

1. Decision-makers are accountable to girls: International and regional actors, governments and donors are held accountable for advancing girls’ rights and to accelerating progress to end child marriage and its consequences. Read more about Save the Children’s Girl Champions speaking out for the rights of girls in their communities and globally!

2, Increased financing for gender equality, including gender-responsive budgets: Governments and donors increase investment in gender equality and to end child marriage and mitigate its consequences by fairly financing access to sexual and reproductive health services, protection from all forms of violence, including sexual and gender-based violence, and access to safe, quality education for the most deprived and marginalized girls.

3. Equal treatment for girls: Governments, donors, partners and communities work together to empower girls and change the patriarchal laws and social norms that limit girls’ potential and drive rights violations like child marriage.

Join the movement! Bridge the Gap for Girls


You might be surprised to hear that even now, in 2020, girls around the world are facing gender-based discrimination, violence and child marriage. Here’s your chance to do something about it.

Walk with us! Join our Bridge Challenge! Learn more.

Encourage girls to speak out!

Challenge unfair laws, policies and norms!

Save the Children puts gender equality at the heart of everything we do.
As the world’s leading expert on childhood, we start right from birth, giving children a healthy start. Since 2000, we’ve helped achieve a 25% decline in child marriage worldwide – and empowered 11 million girls to stay in school. (Educated girls are more likely to transition to a career and decide for themselves when they’re ready for marriage and motherhood.) And we work with boys, men and parents too, to fight gender bias in families.

Watch for more news from our gender equality team in celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8. Together we can bridge the gap between the challenges girls face and the futures they deserve.
