Water Purification System to Benefit 7K Unification Town Residents

first_imgDoc Lawson demonstrates how to clean the system after use, as Mayor Kiawu and others look on yesterday.More than seven thousand (7,000) residents of Unification Town/Smell-No-Taste in Lower Margibi County will benefit from a water purification system supplied per family, according to Mr. Doc Lawson, chief executive officer of DomaniSports in partnership with the Young Men’s Christian Association of Liberia (YMCA).During a meeting with Unification Town mayor Esther G. Kiawu yesterday, Mr. Lawson, along with YMCA branch coordinator Francis Karpu, explained the effectiveness of the system that will relieve the residents of their difficult search every day for clean drinking water.The demonstration forms part of the “FOLLOW THE WATER” campaign by DomaniSports and YMCA which was initially aimed at providing clean water only to children who play sports, but has now been extended to entire households.In an easy demonstration before officials of the mayor’s office, Mr. Lawson said the system’s proprietary hollow fiber membrane filters are small, portable, easy-to-use, and reliable, adding that they are free of charge and can last for more than 15 years without needing replacement.Mayor Kiawu and her officials looked on in awe as Mr. Lawson went through a quick demonstration of purifying dirty water with the system, drinking some of the purified water and offering it to others.“Each system serves eight (8) family members and families will no longer struggle to find safe drinking water after the system is given to them,” he said.Mr. Lawson said the mayor’s office will provide his organization with the number of residents or family heads in Unification Town/Smell-No-Taste, and that a special team of technicians will visit the area to work along with her office.He said the system is made and tested in a way that “it is certified for absolute microns, making it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholera, and Salmonella typhi – which cause cholera and typhoid, to pass through.  With the system in place, no child will die from any waterborne disease.”Meanwhile, Lawson told the mayor’s office staff that ‘FOLLOW THE WATER’ is a unique program that provides safe drinking water for children who play soccer and other sports.He gave a brief explanation about his background and his sojourn in the United States, where he lived for 50 years after leaving Liberia at the age of 10.Responding, Mayor Kiawu expressed appreciation to Mr. Lawson, DomaniSports and YMCA and lamented the unnecessary deaths of children due to lack of safe drinking water in the community.“We are grateful that you decided on our community to benefit from the system,” Mayor Kiawu said. “We ask God to bless you and your partners.”She promised her administration’s cooperation with the project. Deputy Mayor Mark Francis also commended Mr. Lawson.Mr. Lawson is also the Global Ambassador for The Last Well, a not-for-profit United States-based Christian organization that is building hand pumps and wells throughout Liberia, with the hope of accomplishing the target in all 15 counties by the year 2020.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Euro 2016 fantasy football: Five of the best defenders for your team

first_img Ben Davies (Wales) – €5.0m – Only three (England, Spain, Romania) teams conceded fewer goals than Wales’ four in Euro 2016 qualifying, and two of those were in the penultimate game of the campaign. Davies is a better option than Ashley Williams as he is a certain starter, more likely to get forward is €0.5m cheaper. Juanfran (Spain) – €5.5m – The right back may have had the worst possible end to the season by missing the crucial penalty in the Champions League final, but expect him to have a better Euros. Juanfran is likely to start ahead of Hector Bellerin and Cesar Azpilicueta with Spain one of the favourites to make it three consecutive European Championship triumphs. 5 5 5 5 Ricardo Rodriguez (Switzerland) – €6.0m – Switzerland are in Group A along with France, Romania and Albania and therefore there are opportunities for clean sheet points. Also, as a left-back, Rodriguez will look to get forward and he even takes set pieces from time to time. Euro 2016 is still a few days away and while all the teams begin to arrive in France and prepare their for their first game, fans left at home await the big kick off.Once you’ve stuck up your wallchart and drawn the office sweepstake, there is only one more thing to do – pick your Euro 2016 fantasy football team.Regardless of how well or poorly you did during the Premier League version, the Euros is going to be completely different and talkSPORT are here to give you tips all the way through to the final.First up are the defenders which, while you aim to save money on them so you can spend big on the forwards, often end up making the difference in your mini league.We look at the five of the best defensive picks as you start to put your fantasy teams together.Click the arrow above, right, to see who will be scoring the big points throughout the group stages.We are using the official UEFA Euro 2016 fantasy football and you can pick your team here. Eric Dier (England) – €5.0m – Dier is a bonus player here as he is registered as a defender despite almost certainly occupying the holding midfield role for the Three Lions. He should start all three group games and is a threat in the air and from set pieces. 5 Patrice Evra (France) – €6.0m – Click the arrow, right, to see the other Euro fantasy football defensive players – France are likely to go quite far in the tournament and will be up for the fight as tournament hosts. The French have a relatively straightforward group with Romania, Switzerland and Albania so expect a couple of clean sheets. Evra is a certain starter and could even chip in with the odd assist. last_img read more
