21C presents: How Israel is tackling the water crisis in Puerto Rico

“They came like angels from the sky,” said Porfirio Fraticeli, a water operator in El Real about IsraAID.

When Hurricane Maria barreled into Puerto Rico in September 2017, the tiny mountain village of El Real was one of many left devastated by the deadly storm, one of the worst to ever hit the island.

Things looked bleak for the 1000 residents of this remote village who quickly began to succumb to waterborne diseases. A week after the storm, however, a team of Israeli workers arrived unexpectedly, bringing vital medical aid and water filters.

Watch below to meet the people of El Real, and hear the moving story behind IsraAID’s incredible work!

bh Laval police find kidnapped 8-year-old girl, unharmed but tied up in a car

New post on Montreal Gazette
Laval police find kidnapped 8-year-old girl, unharmed but tied up in a car by pdtechintegration An eight-year-old girl who was kidnapped on her way to school in Laval Tuesday morning was found unharmed an hour and a half later by police, as local authorities were preparing to issue an Amber Alert. A 54-year-old woman, whom police say is known to the child’s family, was arrested and is expected in court on Wednesday to face charges of kidnapping, forcible confinement and wearing a disguise to commit a crime. The child was taken around 7 a.m., when police say a woman wearing a wig and dark glasses drove alongside the girl and, showing her a puppy, tried to get the child to enter the vehicle. Police allege that when that approach failed, she forced the child into the vehicle and sped off. School authorities called the child’s mother to say her daughter had not shown up for class. The mother called 911. Laval police said they were on the verge of issuing an Amber Alert, which would have informed police forces and news outlets across the country of the child’s disappearance, when they received a tip. That information led to the interception of the vehicle by municipal police on the South Shore as it drove through Beloeil. The child was found on the car seat, tied up but otherwise physically unharmed. Police learned afterward that a family dispute seems to have been at the origin of the incident.

‘We danced in the streets with the soldiers’: French civilians recall joys, horrors of D-Day

D-Day June 5, 2019 5:05 am Updated: June 5, 2019 5:27 am

Thérèse Le Chevalier was just 15 years old on June 6, 1944, but she can still hear the bombs that heralded the beginning of the D-Day invasion.

“It was a harsh sound,” she recalls. “My father had dug a trench in the backyard. And so we spent the whole night lying in the trench.”

Le Chevalier grew up in the French coastal village of Bernières-sur-Mer in Normandy, on what is now Juno Beach. She and her family spent four years living under Nazi occupation.

“It was not easy to live, particularly because food was difficult to get,” she says.

The Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France 75 years ago marked the beginning of the end of the Second World War. But that victory came at a great cost, including to the French population in Normandy. By the time the sun set on D-Day, around 2,500 French civilians had been killed, some caught in the crossfire of Allied bombs.

Le Chevalier and other surviving French civilians who endured occupation and liberation are now sharing their stories as part of a new exhibition called In Their Footsteps. It was organised by the Juno Beach Centre, a museum in Normandy dedicated to the 14,000 Canadian soldiers who fought on D-Day.

“The Canadians who came to liberate Juno Beach didn’t come to liberate rocks — they came to liberate people,” says Nathalie Worthington, director of the Juno Beach Centre. “There were people living here; you had families who had children. And they’ve experienced all the traumas of German occupation and then the traumas of liberation.”
