LIFE PNG Care (LPC), a non-government organisation which cares for and educates children in Port Moresby, received K100,000 from oil and gas company Kumul Petroleum Holdings Ltd (KPHL).
The money was raised from KPHL’s charity golf challenge.
KPHL managing director Wapu Sonk commended the teams representing businesses, departments and agencies for supporting a worthy cause.
“It was wonderful to have corporate organisations and individuals join us in to raise funds through the game of golf for a non-profit organisation that relies heavily on donations and charity,” he said.
Sonk said KPHL had established a close relationship with LPC and was honoured to help with their work with under-privileged children in Port Moresby.
“LPC is doing a tremendous job by empowering these children in Port Moresby for a sustainable future through education under the strongim pikinini education, mobile education and home schooling education programmes,” he said.
“We are proud to be associated with a charity like LPC, as its objectives are aligned with our vision which is to create opportunities for Papua New Guineans.” LPC director Collin Pake thanked KPHL for their support which went to making a difference in the lives of young Papua New Guineans.
Pake said the future of PNG was in its children and it was everyone’s responsibility to do their part to help.
“We are a local charity organisation and we depend mostly on donations from corporate houses to support our programmes,” he said.
“We are thankful for the partnership with KPHL for its continuous support in helping us achieve our objectives,” Pake said. He said the LPC cared for and educated the increasing number of abandoned, mistreated and neglected street children in Port Moresby.
