Larium Malaria
To Lariam or not to Lariam

Malaria is a killer disease and pre-cautions must always be taken. Malaria kills hundreds of thousands of children and adults every year. Do not forget that everyone's objective in this debate is to safely control malaria and save lives. You must take heed of pre-cautions if you are travelling to a malarious region. You should absolutely try to take some form of prophylactic anti-malarial drug. There is a range to choose from and you should seek advice from a qualified doctor about this. The point of this site is to give people everywhere access to plenty of sources of information about the drug mefloquine, therefore enabling them to make a properly informed decision when agreeing to take it.

Malaria is an infectiouse disease transmitted by mosquitoes. It is caused by minute parasitic protozoa of the genus Plasmodium, which infect human and insect hosts alternately. Malaria is the world's worst health problem. At this moment more people are ill with malaria than any other disease, and the numbers affected or at risk are increasing remorselessly. Control measures are becoming less effective, and the threat of epidemic malaria is increasing in many tropical areas.

Maasai, Pride of Africa: a Vanishing Culture.

The Maasai, whose history is lost in the heart of the Dark Continent, are, at the same time, a symbol and very real people with an uncertain future. Their ability to cope with a new reality and having the strength, if not to reject it, at least to be able to pick only what they really need, make them a perfect symbol of anti globalism. Of course they don't follow any fashion or intellectual wave around the world......

......The world cannot afford anymore to waste any kind of creature or culture.

They didn't know then that their first experiences in Botswana would chance the rest of their lives. The Africa madness "infected" them like many others. In 1997 Ellen and Paul travelled from Johannesburg to Nairobi, in 1999 through Kenya and Tanzania and in 2000 they went to Uganda.

Sorious Samura

Sorious logo


Sorious Samura won international acclaim for his documentary Cry Freetown, which highlighted atrocities that were taking place in his native Sierra Leone.

"It is my belief that unless we Africans can tell our own story within content and show an Africa that has not been seen before the West will continue to throw their hands up in despair believing that our continent is full of a bunch of confused savages that is now beyond salvation/redemption. The only way the West can understand and treat us seriously is to hear the African story first hand from the African perspective rather than the usual whitie version - so why not take the risk if that can help turn things around for our Continent".

Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer
Official Homepage of the International Association (AISL) ALBERT SCHWEITZER with information about his life and work. At the age of 30, aware of the desperate need of Africans for medical care, he decided to become a medical doctor and devote the rest of his life serving the people of Africa. In 1913, at the age of 37, Dr. Schweitzer and his wife, Hélène, opened a hospital in Lambaréné, Gabon - then a province of French Equatorial Africa. He devoted his life from then on to providing health care for the people in the area. In 1953, at the age of 78, Albert Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 1952. In the speeches and writings during the last twelve years of his life, he emphasized the dangers of nuclear energy, nuclear testing, and the nuclear arms race between the superpowers.

When we observe contemporary society one thing strikes us. We debate but make no progress. Why? Because as peoples we do not yet trust each other.
