African Solution Network Organizes Clean Up Exercise in NY

Bronx, NY

As we head to the fall season, African Solution Network based in Bronx, NY is organizing a clean up exercise in Bronx NY.

The theme for the exercise according to its leader; Nana Yaw Asiedu Baffour aka (Otis), the dream of "Afriqueso" is to achieve the dreams of our fathers.

He made reference to the infamous speech by former US President, John F Kennedy that do not think of what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. Otis proudly said; "It has been my dream to come up with something positive by helping and creating some basic awareness as to our environment and our health. The World Health Organization (WHO ) has estimated that 2 billion people will be infected with the H1N1 Virus before it's eradication"

HIN1 is the the term for "swine flu" vrus. According to;, "Feds drop 'swine flu,' for 'H1N1 flu", U.S. public health officials have dropped the term "swine flu" in favor of "2009 H1N1 flu."

With the help of some volunteers, African Solution Network was created to help in part solving issues which are neglecting.

The clean up excercise is on Sunday; September 6th 2009 from 9am to 12pm.

T Shirts will be distributed to all participants who will attend. It starts from Grand Concourse and Morris Ave towards Bronx Lebanon Hospital.

A durbar follows the exercise at the park of 165th and Jerome Ave, Bronx, NY.
