ExxonMobil PNG Ltd, the operator of the PNG LNG Project, has joined Bel isi PNG to provide support to victims of family and sexual violence (FSV).
Bel isi PNG provides access to case management, counselling and safe house services and provides business leaders with the tools to support change in the workplace and community.
ExxonMobil PNG managing director Andrew Barry said his company was committed to providing a safe, healthy and supportive workplace.
“We all have a role to play in the effort to eradicate FSV from our society and in ensuring proper help is available for its victims in safe and supporting environments,” he said.
Bel isi PNG provides its members access to the following services:
- Professional case management services in the National Capital District for employees and immediate family members;
- access for female employees and immediate family members to a secure safe house in Port Moresby;
- company leaders to participate in a leadership forum that includes an annual event;
- regular newsletters, education and communication materials on the availability of services to staff; and
- Induction sessions for senior leaders and all staff on all community services available to address FSV.
Bel Isi PNG is an innovative new approach to addressing the rising impact and cost of family and sexual violence in Port Moresby, by bringing together private sector, community-based organisations, National Capital District Commission and governments of Australia and PNG.
ExxonMobil PNG also supports the Coalition for Change which advocates against family and gender-based violence.
