World Bee Day: Why Bees Matter

Every May 20th, World Bee Day commemorates the indispensable contribution of bees and other pollinators to our ecosystems and food security. This date holds significance as it honors Anton Janša, a Slovenian innovator in modern beekeeping, who was born on May 20, 1734, and pioneered the first beekeeping school globally. Bees not only produce honey and wax, but also play a crucial role in pollination, facilitating the transfer of pollen between plants, which is essential for fertilization and reproduction. Their pollination efforts impact 75% of the world's crops and 90% of wild flowering plants, fostering biodiversity, climate resilience, and human sustenance. However, bees and other pollinators confront numerous threats, including habitat loss, pesticides, diseases, invasive species, and climate change, jeopardizing their survival and diversity.

World Bee Day aims to raise awareness of these challenges and advocate for actions to protect and preserve bees and their habitats, such as planting bee-friendly flowers, avoiding pesticides, and supporting local beekeepers. This annual observance serves to highlight the critical role of bees and other pollinators in maintaining a healthy planet while shedding light on the obstacles they face, such as habitat loss, pesticide exposure, and climate change. Here are some ways you can participate in this important cause:

Here are some ways to support bees and pollinators:

- Plant Bee-Friendly Flowers: Choose flowers that attract bees like lavender, sunflowers, and wildflowers to provide them with food and shelter.
- Avoid Pesticides: Reduce or eliminate the use of harmful pesticides in your garden and opt for natural alternatives to protect bees and other beneficial insects.
- Support Local Beekeepers: Purchase honey and other bee products from local beekeepers to help sustain their livelihoods and maintain bee populations.
- Educate Youth: Involve young people in beekeeping activities and conservation efforts as they are the future stewards of our environment.
- Remember, you don’t have to be a beekeeper to make a difference. Even small actions collectively contribute to the well-being of bees and pollinators! 🐝🌼

Did you take a break from work to enjoy Boxing Day, or do you have a national holiday in your country? For me, I stayed home all day. Last night was a little difficult for me. I talked about having a cough, and it becomes even more persistent at night. I was talking to my niece and kept coughing for a long time, even after taking my drugs. My throat began to hurt a little, and when I woke up this morning, I was in so much pain, but I managed to stand up, prepare breakfast, and take my drugs, and now I feel much better. I drank lots of water, and I cannot overemphasize the importance of drinking water; it helps your overall health.

I needed some supplies and had to go outside, and all the stores were closed apart from one, which was partly cleared up. I walked back home, had a hot bath, had dinner, and was listening to Christian Christmas music and praying. So calming.

I believe that this Christmas season, which is dedicated to the birth of Jesus Christ, comes with cheers, and God is blessing us all.

I wish you a happy Boxing Day. Tell me how you spent your day.

The love and selflessness of a mother have no limits.
In the first person, the child looked up to
The one who shows the purest love
smile of the world, a ray of sunshine
Joy Giver, Discipline Dispenser
Maami, Nne'm, and Uwata

The 25th of July is World Drowning Prevention Day, as designated by the April 2021 UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/75/273 "Global drowning prevention."

This global advocacy event provides an opportunity to highlight the devastating and deep effects of drowning on families and communities, as well as to provide life-saving solutions to avoid it. Annually, an estimated 236,000 individuals drown, and drowning is one of the ten top causes of mortality for children and adolescents aged 1 to 24. More than ninety per cent of deaths from drowning occur in rivers, lakes, wells, and domestic water storage vessels in low- and middle-income countries, with rural children and adolescents, disproportionately affected.

Governments, UN agencies, civil society organizations, the commercial sector, academic institutions, and individuals are all encouraged to observe World Drowning Prevention Day by emphasizing the need for immediate, coordinated, multi-sectoral action on proven measures such as:

Erecting barriers Controlling water access

Providing pre-school children with safe spaces away from water, such as creches, and competent child care.

Instruction in swimming, water safety, and rescue techniques
The most significant day of the year is Father's Day. I can't imagine counting my blessings without my father at the top of the list. He is an incredible father and the most selfless man I have ever known. Today is another Father's Day, and I'd want to wish my father a wonderful day, as well as long life and good health.

To my father, I wish him a happy Father's Day.
On World Blood Donor Day 2022, the WHO is urging individuals from all over the world to donate blood as a show of solidarity.

Safe blood and blood products, as well as their transfusion, are essential components of health care and public safety. They are essential in the treatment of persons suffering from a variety of diseases, accidents, natural disasters, and armed warfare. The demand for blood is universal, but access to it is limited, particularly in low- and middle-income nations, where shortages disproportionately affect women and children, who are typically the individuals with the greatest need for blood.

Everyone can take the easy yet altruistic act of becoming a regular blood donor to develop communities, help local health systems, and save lives.

Key messages

Aiding people of all ages who suffer from diseases, tragedies, and accidents requires safe blood. Your contribution saves lives and safeguards our community. Thank you!

Blood is constantly necessary for saving lives and treating patients. Donating blood on a regular basis demonstrates your commitment to the community.

The need for blood is universal, yet not everyone who requires blood has access to it. In low- and middle-income countries, severe blood shortages exist.

In low- and middle-income nations, women and children are disproportionately affected by blood shortages since they require the most blood.

To ensure that everyone who requires a transfusion has access to safe blood, all nations require regular blood donations from unpaid volunteers.

Donating blood is an act of unity that saves lives. Providers of safe blood and blood products are vital to all health care systems.

Regular blood donations and widespread public engagement ensure that everyone has access to blood when they need it.

All blood donors offer patients and communities vital safety.

The creation of a successful blood donor program is facilitated by a hospitable social and cultural climate characterized by strong solidarity.

Donating blood strengthens social bonds and fosters a supportive community.

Who is able to donate blood?

If they are in good health, almost everyone can donate blood. To become a blood donor, there are a few basic standards that must be met. The following are some basic eligibility criteria:


You are between the ages of 18 and 65.

In some countries, national legislation allows 16–to 17-year-olds to donate if they meet the physical and haematological requirements and provide appropriate consent.

Regular donors beyond the age of 65 may be accepted at the discretion of the responsible physician in various countries. Some countries have a 60-year-old age limit.
You must weigh at least 50 kg.

In some countries, whole blood donors must weigh at least 45 kg in order to donate 350 ml (10%).
Health You must be in good physical condition at the time of donation.

If you have a cold, flu, sore throat, cold sore, stomach bug, or any other infection, you cannot give.

If you've recently had a tattoo or body piercing, you won't be able to donate for six months after the surgery. After 12 hours, if the body piercing was done by a qualified health expert and any inflammation has subsided, you can donate blood.

If you've been to the dentist for minor treatment, you'll need to wait 24 hours before donating; if you've had extensive work done, you'll need to wait a month.

It is forbidden to donate blood. If you don't have enough haemoglobin to donate blood, you must:

At the donation place, a test will be performed. A haemoglobin level of not less than 12.0 g/dl for females and not less than 13.0 g/dl for males is used as a threshold in several nations.
Today, we celebrate the journey and strength of fulfillment because men are indeed great. To my ever-loving Father and Dad, a man with unending and pure love, may God keep you and strengthen you each hour. You will see my children, they will grow to honor you and love you even more. You are our sunshine and our hero. 

I love you, Daddy.
Godisable Jacob ❤️❤️

Lupus Awareness Month is observed in May and aims to increase understanding amongst the general public.

What is Lupus
Lupus is a disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs (autoimmune disease). Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.

Autoimmunity” means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues (“auto” means “self”). As a result, it creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body. Info.
