People around the world want to get rid of this tobacco pandemic and claim their right to health and healthy living in order to protect their future generations.

International Federation of Red Cross & Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) ramping up efforts of hundreds of Red Cross teams in the Americas to prepare for another Hurricane Season during the COVID-19 pandemic
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is currently mobilizing and ramping up the efforts of hundreds of Red Cross teams across the Americas to prepare for another hurricane season during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Experts predict 13 to 20 named storms forming in the Atlantic Ocean, six to 10 of those could develop into hurricanes, and three to five possibly becoming major hurricanes of Category 3 or higher. These storms could bring further devastation to a region that is still heavily affected by last year’s storms and hurricanes and the COVID-19 pandemic.During the next six months, deadly rains, landslides and floods could further affect communities already grappling with the pandemic, where vaccines are not yet widely available, and where livelihoods have been destroyed.
Jagan Chapagain, IFRC Secretary General, said:“In Central America and Colombia, thousands of families are still recovering from damage caused by hurricanes Eta and Iota, which affected more than 7.5 million people just six months ago. Recovery has been hindered by the pandemic, which has wiped people’s economic resources, strained health systems and caused challenges to the response.
“The pandemic adds another layer of complexity. We are now, once again, facing an extremely challenging scenario, with overlapping crises increasing the vulnerabilities of women, children, migrants and other groups. We are supporting regional efforts to prepare for this hurricane season, including strengthening an equitable response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring no one is left behind.
To mitigate the logistical challenges caused by COVID-19 restrictions, the IFRC has prepositioned humanitarian goods in Panama, Guatemala, Honduras and across the Caribbean to provide immediate response to the humanitarian needs of up to 60,00 people. In parallel, Red Cross teams share early warning messages and urge people to have food, water and other basic necessities at hand, as during the pandemic it might take longer for help to arrive.
The IFRC is paying particular attention to the English and Dutch-speaking Caribbean, where several countries have been affected by La Soufrière’s volcanic eruption and where COVID-19 cases and deaths are currently reaching a record high and the socio-economic impact of the pandemic is particularly severe.

The Prime Minister of Dominica has announced that the International Airport will be constructed in Wesley using funds provided by a CBI Program Agent, and Contracts are to be signed on 9th June
The Prime Minister of Dominica has announced on his Ah Nous Parley Program on Sunday night, that the International Airport will be constructed in Wesley using funds provided by a CBI Program Agent, and Contracts are to be signed on 9th June.
Prime Minister Skerrit says this project will cost over $1 Billion Dollars.
He says this isn’t a loan, but rather the expenditures are being paid by MMCE, and that MMCE will be promoting the Airport with revenues to be placed in an escrow account.
He said this approach is a genius idea as it will have little to no impact on taxpayers or the Treasury or on future generations of Dominicans.
Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit
