This is the burned front gate of the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) hospital in the town of Leer, South Sudan as of February 2014. The hospital was thoroughly looted, burned, ransacked, and effectively destroyed, along with most of Leer, sometime between the final days of January and early February 2014, leaving hundreds of thousands of people cut off from critical, lifesaving medical care. The hospital, opened by MSF 25 years ago, was the only secondary health care facility in Unity State, South Sudan. Hospitals have been ransacked in the towns of Bor, Malakal, Bentiu, Nasir and Leer, often during periods of heavy fighting. The damage goes far beyond the acts of violence themselves as vulnerable people are cut off from healthcare when they desperately need it.

Librarians = “critical first referrers.”
“We are very much looking to connect with libraries. We believe that librarians are critical first referrers to information and community resources. By making it as easy as possible for librarians to share information about summer meals, we believe we can dramatically increase community awareness of the program and the number of youth who access the meals,” Marnie Webb, spokesperson for Caravan Studios, the creator of Range, a mobile app to find where summer meals are served.

13 April 2014 – With tensions flaring in eastern Ukraine, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appealed to all sides to work towards calming the situation, which has the “growing potential” to spark violent clashes, while the United Nations Security Council is set to hold an open meeting on the situation later this evening.

In a statement issued late last evening by his spokesperson in New York, Mr. Ban expressed deep concern about possible fresh clashes in strife-riven Ukriane, after, according to press reports, anti-Government protesters in the small eastern city of Slavyansk took over the main police building and constructed barricades along roads leading into the town, which is located some 90 miles from the Russian border.

All these places so reminiscent of
Our mistakes and all the we should have done
And in time the veil will be lifted from
All I need and all that I won’t become

A little nostalgic music for your Tuesday evening melody.
