Top on the 10 expenditure items are the construction of the road from Sisimakam to Hawenai (K1million), shipment of the medical equipment for Kiunga and Rumginae Hospitals from Rotary Australia (K100,000), airfare subsidies into the remote airstrips (K300,000), North Fly nursing and community health workers leave fare issues (K50,000), teachers leave fare issues (K50,000), police operation (K50,000) and defence operation (K50,000).
