BSP helps Waigani Lifeline centre

Normal, Papua


LIFELINE counselling service at Waigani was the proud recipient of a new computer set and office furniture donated to them by BSP last week.
Lifeline is a Christian organisation which offers a venue for people to receive advice on problems they faced in their lives.
Director Joseph Saronduo said he was very happy with the donation as they were currently facing financial troubles due to lack of aid from their donor partners to run the centre.
The Lifeline centre offers basic counselling training courses, HIV/AIDS courses and basic paralegal courses for interested people and from the fees that they charge, they used to support themselves.
Other than these, they also have a refuge shelter for mothers and their telephone service where people call up to share their problems and receive advice.
Mr Saronduo said another way they made an income was by renting out their living quarters.
BSP’s Rosemary Mawe said they were happy to be of service and that the donation would go a long way in assisting Lifeline to continue their good work in helping the people of Papua New Guinea.
Lifeline has been in PNG since 1973, and now had eight permanent staff and volunteers who specialise in different areas to cater for the different issues.
  Their toll free number is 326 0011.
