all roads lead to male'...

.
..at us$5,300,000 the ugly black thing is perhaps the hallmark of our past governments' policy of concentrating all vital services on the tiny island capital...

all roads lead to...

construction of this 68 million rufiyaa 12-storey extention to the IGM Hospital began as recent as September or 2007... and boasts 4 floors of VIP rooms at a time when strong calls were made for providing the most critical services such as basic health care to all islands..

..the building remains incomplete, to this day...


all roads lead to male...

Email from President Nasheed to the Global Work Party 101010

Dear friends,

As President of one of the world's most climate vulnerable countries, I want to thank you for your tireless work and offer my wholehearted support for the Global Work Party on 10/10/10.

I shall be working hard in support of 10/10/10, up on my roof installing solar panels donated by Sungevity. But my event is just one of dozens of activities planned in the Maldives and thousands worldwide in support of this campaign.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to continue working to ensure that the planet meets the sustainable goal of returning CO2 concentrations to 350ppm.

For the Maldives, 350 is more than just a number: it is a passport to survival for our entire nation.

With best wishes,

President Mohamed Nasheed
President of the Maldives
