- A tiny village in Poland has attracted media attention when it sent an all-girl team to a regional competition for young volunteer firefighters
- According to reports, no new baby boy has been born in the village of Miejsce Odrzanskie in the last decade
- Mayor of the town has offered to reward the first couple who give birth to a boy
While one would hardly think of a community in the world with only girls, interesting, there’s a place like that on earth, which can be found in Poland.
A tiny village in Poland, Miejsce Odrzanskie, may well be the loveliest place in the world.
According to reports, the last time a boy was welcomed into the village was ten years ago.
Since then, 12 girls have been born in the village that's home to nearly 300 residents.
Miejsce Odrzanskie earned media attention when it sent an all-girl team to a regional competition for young volunteer firefighters.
The remoteness of the town has made the volunteer fire department the center of social life for young people.
Reports say that there is no clear scientific reason why only girls are being born in Miejsce Odrzanskie, though scientists have expressed interest in trying to figure out why.
Many residents feel it's just a coincidence.
Still, the village is anxious to deliver a boy and the mayor of the village will offer a reward to the next couple who have a baby boy.
“There has been so much talk about us in the media that for a minute there I was considering naming a street after the next boy born here,” he said. “He will definitely get a very nice gift. And we will plant an oak and name it after him.”
Meanwhile, a young Ghanaian student of Mankessim MA. A. School in the Central region has awed many with his exceptionally creative drawing of the late Ebony Reigns after it was shared into a popular Facebook group.
While the toddler's name is yet to be known, his adorable artwork of the late sensational dancehall artiste has generated pleasant comments from members of the group.
