#AppreciationPost “How luck I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard” @dani_capoferri today is leaving AVSI DRCongo for a new adventure! She has stayed with us for 2 and a half years, working hard and always with a positive attitude. She has been the coordinator of the @unicefrdcongo funded program #RRMP. On #InternationalDayofPeace we want to underline how much she, together with the rest of the staff, have done to create a better environment for people who live in DRC. A huge thank you to Daniela, bonne chance!!!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Struggle? Growth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes it’s real. You struggle with your friends, your family, society. You fight. They don’t understand you. You don’t understand them. You don’t know how to pay course fees next month. You just cannot focus and your boss just doesn’t buy your ideas. Your fiancé is acting out because your emergency mission was extended for another month before you can come home, and the internet connection doesn’t work well enough for daily calls. Or you yourself are wriggling slowly out of your relationship because you feel trapped.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You struggle.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And sometimes it’s real AND it’s a matter of perspective. What does this struggle mean to you? What are you putting in, what are you taking from it? Can you trust that this is not forever? That this, too, shall pass? Can you see beyond the nearest brim and consider that there is more behind this? That there is a lesson in this struggle? Can you keep up your hope that there are greater things awaiting you? Can you see the potential for growth in this struggle?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If not, please look back. A year, two years. Where were you? What have you overcome? Make a list of the struggles that you have won and pin them on your mirror. Remind yourself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gabrielle Roth, the magical mother witch who created the spiritual dance form “5 Rhythms”, danced worldwide, said: “The only way out is through”. Dancing through the pain and the struggle to become a ‘new you’. Butterflies don’t become their gorgeous selves when the caterpillars don’t have to struggle out of the safety of their tight chrysalis, pumping fluids from their abdomen through their veins into their wings which causes the wings to expand to their full size.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t let yourself be defeated by your struggles. Allow them to help you grow.

#ThursdayThoughts “Clean water, soap, antiseptic, electric lights. These might seem like simple things. But in fact, they are critical for keeping mothers and babies alive.” - @unicef Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore.
Thanks to the #UNICEF funded program #PEAR+, we were able to provide mothers and children with clean #water.

After a motorbike accident in April 2017, Stephanie had to get her left leg amputated. She recently received her final prosthesis. “It was a real relief,” she says. “I had a foot again. People’s eyes have become less heavy because it is hardly noticed anymore. I started going to church again and I hope to be able to quickly resume my business. It will have taken me more than a year to get there.”

Since 2013, MSF has been providing emergency surgical care in Bangui – the capital of Central African Republic. In June 2017, we opened our own 60-bed hospital. Specialised in orthopedic and visceral surgery for adults, the hospital also provides physiotherapy and mental health support to trauma patients in order to facilitate their recovery.

Perempuan memiliki kesempatan untuk memastikan diri dan anggota keluarganya aman dari dampak bencana, memastikan hak dan kebutuhan dasarnya terpenuhi ketika terjadi bencana, dan membangun komunitasnya agar mampu lebih siap.menghadapi bencana. .
.
Maka penting untuk perempuan agar mau belajar dan terlibat dalam setiap penyusunan rencana, pengorganisasian, pelaksanaan, dan monitoring, dan pelaporan praktik baik kegiatan-kegiatan pengurangan risiko bencana, operasi tanggap darurat, hingga pengkajian kebutuhan pasca bencana untuk pelaksanaan program rehabilitasi dan rekonstruksi bencana
.
.
Pengelolaan pengurangan risiko bencana akan berdampak luas manfaatnya apabila dikerjakan bersama-sama melalui suatu organisasi
.
.
Bersama dengan Muhammadiyah.Disaster Management Center (MDMC) @mdmcindonesia , Organisasi Wanita Muhammadiyah atau yang dikenal dengan Aisyiyah @aisyiyahpusat mendorong upaya penguatan kapasitas perempuan untuk mengurangi risiko bencana melalui Lembaga Lingkungan Hidup dan Penanggulangan Bencana (LLHPB) #Aisyiyah

Makin tambah ilmu, makin kita tau ternyata banyak sekali yang tak kita ketahui. Senang bila teman-teman Ladies tertarik untuk mau bergabung belajar bersama 👍

Happy to discuss .

A patient is treated after a bullet grazed his ear and lodged in his neck. He was wounded in the provinces and referred to MSF’s SICA hospital in Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic.
.
At SICA hospital, 75% of patients are victims of road accidents or wounded by bullets or knives. Fractures are often so complex that they require external fixation and sometimes even the amputation of the damaged limb. In order to avoid long-term consequences, physiotherapists must treat patients as early as possible – often as soon as they leave the operating theatre. However, whatever the treatment, regaining mobility and rehabilitation processes often last for months or even years.

@food4thehungry and @medicalteams are partnering to assist the Rohingya refugees crisis in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh as Joint Rohingya Response Program (JRRP). Here I'm sharing one of our volunteer's statements about the camp situation and his experience.

__________
“The work Medical Teams International has done to help the Rohongya refugees in Southern Bangladesh over the past year is nothing short of miraculous. I have had the honor to serve periodically as  a physician for MTI in the Kutupalong refugee camp since early October 2017. I came with the original medical team posted here to start providing primary care services, to provide emergency inpatient hydration services, and to initiate a refugee community health worker program. Due to efforts of many MTI full time staff as well as expat volunteers we were able to  successfully launch all of those programs and to establish MTI as a respected leader amonsgt the international NGO's serving the Rohingya.  I am wrapping up my third tour here now and the changes just over the past few months in the entire camp and the scope of MTI's projects are almost unbelieveable. Our original tiny field clinic under a tarp 11 months ago has grown into 3 large Primary Health Centers, providing comprehensive outpatient services including prenatal care to hundreds daily. Soon 24/7 coverage will be available as well. In addition, 2 smaller health posts serve the basic primary care needs of the Rohingya community. All are staffed by an ever growing staff of nearly 100 Bangladesh National doctors, nurses, pharmacists, translators, and support personnel. Instead of providing direct primary care to the refugees the MTI medical staff volunteers are now doing "capacity building", i.e., teaching the National staff in the clinic and at the bedside and gradually earning the trust not only of the National providers but of the Rohingya patients as well....
