Juffa gives K150,000 to YWAM


NORTHERN Governor Gary Juffa presented a cheque for K150,000 to YWAM Medical Ships last week, fulfilling the first part of a pledge towards annual operational expenses for YWAM’s training and medical ship, the mv YWAM PNG.
Juffa said the provincial administration was a proud supporter of YWAM’s work in Northern.
“We’ve established a wonderful relationship with YWAM Medical Ships over the last four years – first with their land-based teams and now with their medical ship mv YWAM PNG,” he said.
“YWAM’s unique ability to deliver healthcare and training in remote areas make them an ideal partner as we work towards a shared vision – excellent rural service delivery.
“We are looking forward to the mv YWAM PNG’s return to Oro early next year – our health workers always love working alongside YWAM’s team of passionate, dedicated volunteers. Together, the teams have been able to achieve excellent outcomes for our people.”
YWAM Medical Ships managing director Ken Mulligan said he was grateful for the Oro administration’s support.
“We greatly value our relationships in the Oro and appreciate Governor Juffa’s leadership in establishing this important partnership,” Mulligan said.
“The mv YWAM PNG is currently undergoing stage III of her renovations before she returns to PNG next month.
“This upcoming deployment is our biggest yet – our capacity for service delivery will increase again once this next round of renovations are complete.”
