SICK children at St Mary’s Vunapope Hospital in East New Britain can now enjoy facilities in a new playroom built at their ward.

The playroom is known as the Pilaipilai Room and cost around K12,000 with the help of PNG Balsa.

It is fully equipped with toys, books and puzzles shipped all the way from Europe, with the help of PNG Balsa community development worker Lizbeth Moneton.

“The room is to help in the healing process of sick children.

“It contains activity books to help occupy the children’s minds from the daily routine of needles, medication, doctors and nurses,” Moneton said.
