GULF mothers have gone a step further in their efforts to build a multi-purpose hall which will also house the regional office of the Papua Gulf women’s fellowship in Kerema.
This was made possible by the Kerema MP Titus Bombom who gave a total of K30,000 from his discretionary funds to the Port Moresby-based Papuan Gulf women’s fellowship in a ceremony at the Vabukori village last week.
Mr Bombom said it was part of his government’s commitment to assist all sectors and he was glad to help the church as it played a vital role in developing communities.
United church Papua Gulf region women’s fellowship vice-president Auharai Ume said the fundraising for the proposed project had been ongoing for sometime now and the donation was timely.
The hall would be used to conduct workshops to help mothers with literacy programmes health and personal viability development and also house the regional office.
Mrs Ume said the women had a five-year fundraising plan and were in the second year.
They are planning for a two level building but the plan of building will depend on the money raised.
The women are also fundraising by selling arts and crafts at the Tabari Place.
