I first heard of this story from one of the owners of OneStar Network an internet TV station broadcasting from Liberia. The Reporter who did the interview is Lisa Darcy (on July 5th 2013).
In the interview, Mrs Rachel Grant explained that she and her husband have been running a make shift Day Care for approximately 260 Children who live in the Refugee Camp. Mrs. Grant said that she and her husband have lived in the Baby Ma Camp since 2009.
Ms Grant made a plea to the viewer if OneStar Network to bring help to the camp, so that she can continue to keep the children safe and provide them with education.The one room hut that the Day Care was in has broken down because the building was old and worn from the weather.
The Camp Manger is Mr. Henry Johnson. He estimates that there are over 6,000 people living in the camp and they only have one Bathroom (latrine) facility for the entire population.
The camp also does not have sufficient water to sustain the population. They have one hand pump and when the hand pump stops working, the community gets water from the local creek. According to Mr. Johnson, a recent out break of diarrhea lead to the death of several children and elderly people on the community.
Mr. Johnson also said that the camp has a clinic, but it closes at 4:00pm and when residents get sick during the night, there is no where to take them.

GAW Family Services will be looking for partnerships in the near future to help the people of the Baby Ma displacement Camp. Please look for more details in the near future.

BILL HAS DONE IT AGAIN.
They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.
I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...
And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
And then I heard the father talk.
Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.
The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
$500 sneakers for what?
And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
Where were you when he was 2?
Where were you when he was 12?
Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol?
And where is the father? Or who is his father?
People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?
People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something?
Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
What part of Africa did this come from??
We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .....
I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! !
With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail.
Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.
We have got to take the neighborhood back.
People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.
We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
We cannot blame the white people any longer.'
Dr.. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed..D.
WELL SAID, BILL
It's NOT about color...
It's about behavior!!!

Will you be eligible to vote in 2012?
What is the big deal, why can't people just go out and comply with the new laws? That was my thought exactly. I mean I thought everyone automatically has a Photo ID, but that is no the case and these laws will render millions of American Citizens ineligible to vote.
Read for your self and be informed:
States that have changed voters law
Alabama Florida Georgia Illinois Iowa Kansas Maine Mississippi Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee, Texas, Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin,

About RTA 2012 Road to AIDS 2012 is a nationwide tour that will engage communities on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and ensure community voices are heard in the development of a domestic platform for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012).
The Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services and Community Education Group are working with the International AIDS Society, convener of AIDS 2012, to increase participation of local communities in the 15 U.S. cities most adversely impacted by HIV.
This project is supported by a grant from The Merck Company Foundation.Take form the website:
· Young Black LGBT men are leading in deathrelated to HIV/AIDS
· Black women leading in the Stats for new cases of HIV/AIDS
Positive Points of the evening:
· The Affordable Care Act will allow people whocould not afford health care access to life saving health care services.
· The Affordable Care Act is already being phasedin. Students and other individuals are already beginning to benefit from isBill.
· Houston is a leader in testing and innovativeways to reach and care of people with HIV
· Texas is a State that has a Leader majority thatdo not always passes legislation in the interest of minority communities.
· Texas citizens feel helpless, thus they do notparticipate in the electoral process to vote out leaders that are not working intheir best interest.
· Individuals running for president want to repealthe President’s Health Care Bill which will reverse the Affordable Health CareAct.
· Communities can come together to Vote IN leaderswho will pass Bills related to prevention services.
· Communities can support leaders that are alreadyin office by giving them new ideas, VOTING and contacting them.
· Communities can VOTE IN Leaders that pass Billsthat take care of their needs.
· Clinics and Community Organizations can preparefor 2014 by getting educated and providing appropriate care for individualsthat use their services.
The above information is my observation from the evening.
