Time for YOU to help!

24 Nov

The Ministry of Interior has urged blood donators to heed to the requests made by the Central Blood Bank, In a recent statement issued, the bank stated that it suffers from low inventories in blood.

I also received a BB Broadcast and a Whatsapp re this…there is a massive blood shortage.

It could be your child that needs it.

Anyone above 18 years of age can donate blood, provided you produce your CIVIL ID. The blood bank is located behind Mubarak Hospital in Jabriya.

Did you know?

You can donate blood three times a year.

You only lose about 470ml, which is just under a pint.

Donating blood reduces high blood pressure.

You can get more information from here and here.

40 Tons of Food Items Seized

24 Nov

According to Kuwait Times

”The Director General of Kuwait Municipality Ahmad Al-Sabeeh said yesterday that the capital’s municipality seized foodstuffs unfit for human consumption amounting to 40 tons, the biggest in the governorate’s history. Al-Sabeeh said in a statement to KUNA that the municipality’s emergency team seized the quantity in a sting against some depots in which they thwarted an attempt to promote the items among consumers through popular markets or groceries spread among the desert campers.”

Apparently some of the food dates back to 2001…that’s just gross.

Speaking of foods being seized. Could someone let me know if they see Aptamil AR milk, anywhere? Or, has it been seized too?

I have searched high and low and haven’t been able to find it anywhere, switched my baby to NOVALAC but it really isn’t agreeing with him. Would really like to get the APTAMIL AR. I have spoken to the Aptamil Supplier here in Kuwait and they have told me, ‘we have it in stock, it hasn’t been signed for release by the balidiya’….-that was three weeks ago and the situation has still not changed. šŸ˜¦

You know, I’d just like to say, this isn’t ‘shampoo or cream’…it’s baby food, it’s vital that it’s available.

Tonight’s episode of Oprah really made me cry…

22 Nov

I don’t watch Oprah too much but, tonight, I did.
The episode was …ooof, really, really sad.
A lady, a mother had lost her three children in a horrific car accident. Her husband and her were saved and she wasn’t quite sure why until exactly one year later, she gave birth …………to triplets… a miracle?
Imagine. She lost three and exactly a year later , she gave birth to three.
It gets weirder.
She lost in the accident, 2 girls and a boy..
A year later, she gave birth to….2 girls and a boy..
Scary, very scary.

Well, here’s a solution!
