26 Nov TRUKAI SUPPORTS YWAM’S HEALTH OUTREACH IN NORTHERN PROVINCE
Delivering health services in rural locations in Papua New Guinea is very challenging given our rugged terrains and complex river systems. Despite these challenges, Youths With A Mission (YWAM) Medical Ship is one such organisation that has been delivering vital health services by boat to some of the remote locations along our coastlines.
Trukai Industries Limited recognizes the importance of their work and has supported them with rice donations over the years for their health outreach programs. The company recently donated 600 kilograms of rice to the medical ship for its Popendetta outreach. This is the third donation so far this year totaling close to 2 tonnes of rice.
MV YWAM PNG Ship Manager, Jeana Wiemeyer said the rice donation will benefit 120 volunteers from 18 different countries as well as additional volunteers on further outreaches.
“On behalf of the whole team aboard YWAM’s Medical & Training Ship, MV YWAM PNG, I would like to extend our wholehearted thanks to Trukai for the donation of rice for our upcoming outreaches. It is wonderful to see partners from all over PNG and the world work together to build healthy villages and a healthy Papua New Guinea. We are grateful for Trukai’s partnership and support”, she said.
She said in collaboration with Northern Provincial Health Authority, they expect to see approximately 3,000 primary healthcare, optometry and dental patients. Their final outreach of the year will be to Morobe’s Tewae-Siassi District.
