Nawaeb gets K313,000 to buy ambulance, build classroom


NAWAEB district in Morobe has received funding of K313, 000 for two projects in the district from the National Gaming and Control Board.
The funding, which comes from NGCB community benefit fund, will be used to buy a district ambulance at a cost of K113,000 and a double classroom at Situm Primary School at a cost of K200,000. Nawaeb MP Kennedy Wenge thanked Prime Minister Peter O’Neill, who is the chairman of board of trustees for the NGCB, for making sure these projects were approved.
He also thanked NGCB chief executive officer Imelda Agon and staff of NGCB for facilitating and approving the two projects.
“This is an Easter present for my people in the district and I really appreciate those who were behind getting these two projects approved,” Wenge said.
He said Situm Primary School was one of the largest primary schools in Nawaeb with a total enrolment of 1100-plus students.
Enrolments are expected to increase with National Government’s tuition fee free education policy. Wenge said the ambulance would assist the health sector in the district in combating tuberculosis.
“There are a lot of patients with TB Cases in Nawaeb,” he said.
“The Ambulance will be named TB Control and used to combat and help transport TB patients and drugs into the district.”
Wenge said with Government going through difficult times, such assistance from NGCB relieved and assisted Nawaeb.
“I am very pleased for two of my district’s projects being funded by NGCB,” he said.
“I hope to working together with you, the boards and your staff, to deliver similar projects to my district in the months and years to come.”
