THE Malaysian Association of Papua New Guinea (MAPNG) gave a cheque of K100, 000 to the Caritas Technical Secondary School last Friday.
MAPNG charity fundraising chairman Ivan Lu said it was to support the Breakfast Club, an initiative by the Caritas Sisters to provide free breakfast for disadvantaged students.
It will support the free lunch scheme for day learning centre students from kindergarten to grade four.
It will also fund the new Caritas School in Kimbe, West New Britain.
“We have financially supported Caritas since 2007 with our donations totalling up to more than K600,000,” Lu said.
“Not only is Caritas transparent and accountable but we see tangible developments and so we continue to support them annually.”
High Commissioner of Malaysia to PNG Nasri Rahman commended the association and the school for their relationship.
Sr Mazzarello Choi, director of Caritas Secondary, thanked the Malaysian Association in PNG for its continuous support.
“We take care of many students, some are from the settlement who do not have financial support or lunch money,” she said.
“It is donations like this that help these students.”
“We thank you and appreciate all your financial assistance.”
