Exxon gives K20,000 to Hanuabada fire relief


EXXONMobil PNG Limited yesterday donated K20,000 to the Hanuabada fire relief in partnership with the Salvation Army.
Managing director Andrew Barry said the company recognised the impact the fire has had on the displaced families.
“To ensure our support helps to address the most immediate needs of the victims, we reached out to the Salvation Army who have considerable expertise in disaster relief and recovery,” Barry said.
The Salvation Army PNG Territory will use the donation to fund two 9000 litre water tanks to be installed near the disaster site and water carts will fill them to supply to the affected families. The funds will also be used to purchase gum boots and safety gloves for volunteers who are assisting with clearing debris.
ExxonMobil PNG has also donated a 40ft container to help with storage.
Salvation Army PNG territorial partnership coordinator Robert Haro thanked ExxonMobil PNG for its continuous support with their work.
Hanuabada relief committee representative Dadi Toka Jr thanked ExxonMobil PNG and Salvation Army for the support.
“Water is a necessity and the tanks will go a long way to help ease the victims’ basic need as they slowly rebuild their lives,” Toka Jr said.
