Death toll from Israeli aggression on Gaza rises to 4,385

The death toll from the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip soared to 4,385, including 1,756 children and 967 women, as the air strikes continued for the 15th day in a row, according to medical sources. They said Israel committed 29 massacres over the last 24 hours in which 248 people were killed and 400 injured, adding that since the start of the assault on the besieged enclave, 550 massacres occurred leaving 3,353 people dead, 70 percent of whom were children, women and elderly, and many are still under the rubble of collapsed buildings. They said Israeli bombings killed 51 health and medical personnel and injured 87 others, and seven hospitals and medical centers were put out of service as they were targeted and ran out of fuel. The sources said the bed occupancy rate in Gaza hospitals was more than 150 percent, forcing hospitals to set up makeshift tents to accommodate the rising number of wounded and sick. The sources said only a limited number of trucks entered the blockaded enclave today through the Rafah crossing with Egypt, adding that the entry of medical supplies is essential for hospitals and warning against excluding fuel within humanitarian aid which will continue to endanger the lives of the sick and wounded and life-saving services. They appealed to the international community to act immediately to bring in fuel and emergency health needs before more victims are lost in hospitals.

WHO_Cholera has spread in more than 30 countries since the beginning of the year

Baghdad / – The World Health Organization announced the outbreak of a cholera epidemic in at least 31 countries this year, putting about one billion people at risk of contracting the disease around the world.

Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, said in a speech before representatives of diplomatic missions in Geneva: “We should have defeated this disease a long time ago, but in fact it is growing.”

The Director-General confirmed that the number of reports of cholera in 2022 doubled compared to 2021, and “this year will be worse.”

He said: “At least 31 countries witnessed a cholera outbreak in 2023, and one billion people are at risk.”

Ghebreyesus added: “What is most worrying is the current outbreak of the disease in Burundi, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Sudan, Syria and Zimbabwe. In southern Africa, great progress has been made in controlling the disease, but the rainy season increases the risk of a serious outbreak of the disease, and raises concern, in particular, the resurgence of the disease this year in countries that eliminated cholera many years ago.”

The Director-General drew attention to the significant shortage of vital supplies, including the oral cholera vaccine.

Ghebreyesus called on the international community to raise $160 million to combat cholera.

According to a World Health Organization bulletin issued in early October in Geneva, the number of cholera cases has exceeded 582,000 since the beginning of the year, and more than 4.5 thousand people have died from the disease.

WHO: 1 billion people suffer from mental disorders

An estimated 14.7 percent of the Eastern Mediterranean Region’s population suffer from mental disorders, the second highest among the WHO six regions, the WTO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean said.

Mental health is one of the key public health issues in our world today, it said in a statement to mark World Mental Health Day, adding that estimates point to more than one billion people have mental disorders, or disorders particularly resulting from drug abuse.

World Mental Health Day aims to ensure the provision of mental health services and psychosocial support to those who need them, and to enhance the resilience of individuals suffering from the effects of war, displacement and climate emergencies by strengthening cooperation between the public, private sectors and civil society, and setting mental health within the priorities of health, development and humanitarian work, it said.

World Mental Health Day, titled “Mental health is a universal human right” this year, urges all government agencies and non-governmental organizations to join forces to improve mental health throughout life, said the statement.

The WTO stressed the importance of support and investment to provide treatment for mental health conditions, promote social integration, reduce stigma and discrimination and protect the rights of vulnerable groups.

“Mental health is a basic human right guaranteed to everyone,” said WTO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, Ahmed Al-Mandhari. “This means that every individual, everywhere, should be able to enjoy the highest possible level of mental health, which includes protecting people from risks related to mental disorders and ensure the right to care that combines high quality and accessibility,” he added.

“People with mental problems should have access to health services in a manner that preserves their dignity, and that they should not be deprived of their right to freedom, independence and integration into society,” he pointed out.

A mental health condition should not, in any way, be a reason to deprive a person of his/her human rights, or exclude them from decisions related to their health, but in many parts of the world people with conditions continue to suffer from a wide range of human rights violations and discrimination. This is why many of them are forced to isolate themselves from community life, Al-Mandhari said.

World Mental Health Day, which is annually marked on October 10, is an opportunity to raise awareness of mental health issues and mobilize efforts to support mental health, the statement said.

نيروبي، كينيا – Media OutReach – 3 أكتوبر 2023 – وقعت شركة سويس-بل هوتيل انترناشيونال، وهي مجموعة لإدارة فنادق عالمية سريعة النمو، اتفاقية مع شركة “إن أي بي إس ريزورت” لإدارة فندق سويس-بل إن نيروبي، وهو أول فندق من فنادق المجموعة في أفريقيا. ويؤكد هذا التعاون خطط التوسع الاستراتيجي في أفريقيا لدى مجموعة سويس- بل هوتيل انترناشيونال.يظهر في الصورة من اليسار إلى اليمين: ستيلا وانيوكي، أنتوني وانيوكي، لوران فوافنيل، ليزي وانيوكي، إريك وانيوكي

يقع الفندق في حي كيليشوا، الذي يشتهر بمحيطه الأخضر الهادئ، ويضم 89 غرفة فسيحة، 9 غرف اجتماعات مجهزة تجهيزًا جيدًا، وصالة ألعاب رياضية. كما يضم مطعمًا يقدم الطعام على مدار اليوم، وبار رائع على السطح بإطلالة بانورامية على أفق نيروبي. يتميز الفندق بموقع مميز إذ يبعد 25 دقيقة فقط عن مطار جومو كينياتا الدولي، و 5 دقائق عن الحياة الصاخبة في ويستلاندز.

وحضرت ليزي وانيوكي، رائدة الأعمال الكينية الشهيرة ومؤسِسِة معهد نيروبي لدراسات الأعمال (NIBS)، حفل التوقيع برفقة وعائلتها.

وأعرب أنتوني وستيلا وإيريك وانيوكي، مدراء شركة “إن آي بي اس ريزورت”، عن سعادتهم بالتعاقد مع شركة سويس-بل هوتيل انترناشيونال لتشغيل الفندق: “تشتهر شركة سويس-بل هوتيل إنترناشيونال بالتميز. ونحن نؤمن بأن وجودهم في نيروبي، من خلال العلامة التجارية سويس-بل إن، سيؤثر بشكل إيجابي على عروض الضيافة في المدينة وتنوعها.”

نيروبي، التي ساهمت بحوالي 10٪ من ناتجها المحلي الإجمالي في مجال السياحة، استقبلت 1,48 مليون سائح دولي في عام 2022، وعززت سمعتها كوجهة رائدة للأعمال والترفيه.

قال جافين إم. فول، رئيس مجلس الإدارة ورئيس سويس-بل هوتيل إنترناشيونال: “نحن فخورون بتقديم علامة سويس-بل إن التجارية في وجهة مميزة مثل نيروبي. حيث إن دخولنا إلى كينيا، وتحديدًا إلى نيروبي، مع شريك حسن السمعة، مثل شركة “إن آي بي اس ريزورت”، يتوافق تمامًا مع خططنا للتوسع على المستوى العالمي، حيث يعد الفندق الأول الذي تشغله مجموعتنا في أفريقيا، وبالتالي يمثل علامة فارقة بالنسبة إلينا.”

ستبدأ شركة سويس-بل هوتيل إنترناشيونال قريبًا في تطبيق معاييرها الدولية، لإعادة إطلاق العلامة التجارية الكاملة لفندق سويس-بل إن نيروبي بحلول 15 يناير 2024.

وأضاف لوران أ. فوافنيل، نائب الرئيس الأول للعمليات والتطوير في منطقة أوروبا والشرق الأوسط وأفريقيا والهند، قائلاً: “تعد منطقة الشرق الأوسط وأفريقيا من أسواق النمو الرئيسية بالنسبة إلينا. وأثبتت البيانات السياحية الأخيرة وجود نمو صحي في أفريقيا، وبروز نيروبي كوجهة رئيسية، لذا جاء ظهور شركة سويس-بل هوتيل انترناشيونال لأول مرة في أفريقيا بتوقيت مناسب، ونتطلع إلى تنفيذ الاتفاق الخاص بعلامتنا التجارية في فندق سويس-بل إن نيروبي.”
