Schools support group aids flood victims

The Citizens Foundation, which gets about a tenth of its funding from the UAE, moves to divert its efforts in Pakistan to disaster relief.

The Citizens Foundation (TCF), which supports a network of 660 schools in Pakistan, normally raises much of its annual funds during Ramadan, but this year things are different. The aid agency's budget has been battered by the floods that are ravaging parts of Pakistan, and some of its schools have been damaged or closed by the disaster.

The TCF operates in Dubai's Humanitarian City, along with other non-governmental charities and aid agencies. Around 10 per cent of its funding comes from donors in the UAE, according to Shahab Haider, the legal representative of TCF. The school project is still a priority but its staff and supporters in Pakistan plan to provide 20 million meals over 30 days to flood victims. Its immediate goal is to provide food packages, water purifying packs and basic medicines. The funding from the UAE will be combined with donors from Europe and the US.

TCF, which was set up in 1995, aims to create ration packs in Pakistan and distribute them through TCF staff and other agencies. The human impact of the recent floods has exceeded that of Pakistan's 2005 earthquake. The TCF sprang into action then and set up the first field hospital and helped provide 5,000 homes for those displaced by the earthquake. The UN has set a donation target of US$460 million (Dh1.7 billion) to aid the nearly 20 million people who have been affected nationwide by the floods. At least 1,500 have died in what the UN has described as the worst natural disaster in Pakistan's history.

The floods have left about six million people homeless from the mountains in the north to the southern plains. The floods are expected to begin draining into the Arabian Sea in the coming days. Much of the TCF donation money has been diverted to direct flood relief. "Of course a lot of our funding is done during Ramadan and it has dropped, but we rely on regular donors throughout the year. It peaks during Ramadan, but is also a year-long campaign for us," said Mr Haider.

Nevertheless, the group continues to push its education drive. "A number of schools are affected and closed down because of the flooding. The schools outside of the flooded areas are open," he said. He was unable to put a figure on the number of schools closed. Students are still enrolling in the ones not affected by the flooding. Sarah Sheeraz Siddiqui, business development manager at TCF, said that before the floods a number of Dubai-based volunteers went to Pakistan to work on the group's main objective of opening schools.

"We always have a lot of interest from people willing to spend their time volunteering," she said. About 92,000 students, with boys and girls split evenly, attend the 660 schools. All 4,800 teachers are female. "It is a real incentive for parents to send their daughters to school. It gives them more confidence in the school and they know who is looking after their children," said Mr Haider. Added Ms Siddiqui: "In total, 70 per cent of our students go on to third level education. A lot of our new teachers were educated in our schools too and are now starting out with us."

The students are means-tested by the school when they enrol. "The parents must pay but most of it is subsidised by the charity," said Mr Haider. The parents pay 15 per cent of their income, no matter how small it may be, as a school. "The schools have such a good reputation, there is a high demand to get in. Still, the majority of it is funded from our donors," said Mr Haider. The first phase of TCF students are in the process of finishing university, and it is not unusual for the charity to see some of its students study medicine or law.

Its schools rival the private schools not only in size, science labs and subjects on offer but also in national competitions. "Some of our pupils have won competitions in art and other subjects," said Mr Haider. @Email:eharnan@thenational.ae

Why does a queen bee feast only on royal jelly?

Some facts about bees:

The queen bee eats only royal jelly, an extraordinary food created by worker bees so she lives much longer

The life cycle of a worker bee is from 40-60 days

A queen bee lives for 3-5 years

This allows her to lay millions of eggs and allows the continuity of the bee colony

About 20,000 honey bees and one queen populate each hive

Honey is packed with vital vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water and anti-oxidants.

Apart from honey, five other products are royal jelly, the special food bees feed their queen 

Pollen is their protein source, a super food that is nutritious, rich in amino acids

Beewax is used to construct the combs. Due to its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial elements, it is used in skin treatments

Propolis, a resin-like material produced by bees is used to make hives. It has natural antibiotic qualities so works to sterilize hive,  protects from disease, keeps their home free from germs. Also used to treat sores, infection, warts

Bee venom is used by bees to protect themselves. Has anti-inflammatory properties, sometimes used to relieve conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, nerve and muscle pain

Honey, royal jelly, pollen have health enhancing qualities

The other three products are used for therapeutic purposes

Is beekeeping dangerous?

As long as you deal with bees gently, you will be safe, says Mohammed Al Najeh, who has worked with bees since he was a boy.

“The biggest mistake people make is they panic when they see a bee. They are small but smart creatures. If you move your hand quickly to hit the bees, this is an aggressive action and bees will defend themselves. They can sense the adrenalin in our body. But if we are calm, they are move away.”

Honey, royal jelly, pollen have health enhancing qualities

The other three products are used for therapeutic purposes

Is beekeeping dangerous?

As long as you deal with bees gently, you will be safe, says Mohammed Al Najeh, who has worked with bees since he was a boy.

“The biggest mistake people make is they panic when they see a bee. They are small but smart creatures. If you move your hand quickly to hit the bees, this is an aggressive action and bees will defend themselves. They can sense the adrenalin in our body. But if we are calm, they are move away.”

 

 

Why does a queen bee feast only on royal jelly?

Some facts about bees:

The queen bee eats only royal jelly, an extraordinary food created by worker bees so she lives much longer

The life cycle of a worker bee is from 40-60 days

A queen bee lives for 3-5 years

This allows her to lay millions of eggs and allows the continuity of the bee colony

About 20,000 honey bees and one queen populate each hive

Honey is packed with vital vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water and anti-oxidants.

Apart from honey, five other products are royal jelly, the special food bees feed their queen 

Pollen is their protein source, a super food that is nutritious, rich in amino acids

Beewax is used to construct the combs. Due to its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial elements, it is used in skin treatments

Propolis, a resin-like material produced by bees is used to make hives. It has natural antibiotic qualities so works to sterilize hive,  protects from disease, keeps their home free from germs. Also used to treat sores, infection, warts

Bee venom is used by bees to protect themselves. Has anti-inflammatory properties, sometimes used to relieve conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, nerve and muscle pain

Going grey? A stylist's advice

If you’re going to go grey, a great style, well-cared for hair (in a sleek, classy style, like a bob), and a young spirit and attitude go a long way, says Maria Dowling, founder of the Maria Dowling Salon in Dubai.
It’s easier to go grey from a lighter colour, so you may want to do that first. And this is the time to try a shorter style, she advises. Then a stylist can introduce highlights, start lightening up the roots, and let it fade out. Once it’s entirely grey, a purple shampoo will prevent yellowing.
“Get professional help – there’s no other way to go around it,” she says. “And don’t just let it grow out because that looks really bad. Put effort into it: properly condition, straighten, get regular trims, make sure it’s glossy.”
