APART from their tight training schedule, the PNG Kumul team went to help a little princess of the world contestant and 11-year-old Miss Hela princess Nakiisha Kakas to feed more than 200 disadvantaged children at the PNG Children Foundation over the weekend at 6-Mile Catholic church.
Led by captain Paul Aiton, players Alex Haija, Rod Griffin, Ryan Tongia, Jessie Joe Parker, Charlie Wabo and Desmond Mok assisted Nakiisha to put a smile on the children’s faces by signing autographs and mingling with
Nakiisha, daughter of police media director Supt Dominic Kakas from Enga and Kathy Pitzz from Tari, has been raising funds to assist the young children who are orphans and malnourished.
She has also contributed some money to the next feeding session next Saturday.
The Grade 5 student said she was proud to help the little children who needed good food and education and has been raising funds over the past months with assistance from her parents and other relatives and friends.
She is among five other little princesses contesting for the Miss Princess of the World and she is running as Miss Hela.
Her father said Nakiisha’s attitude had changed since she decided to help others by being involved with the PNG Children Foundation to raise funds to assist the disadvantage children, adding that she now considers
those more in need and less fortunate than she is.
On a more serious note, Nakiisha called on the government to look at the struggle that many abandoned young children are facing.
She said many of them needed ducation, shelter, love and care and good food.
Meanwhile, Aiton also announced that the Kumuls will be sponsoring two feeding sessions later.
