The Malaysian Association of PNG has donated K40,000 to Salvation Army PNG to support its social work and community service.
Major Chris Goa, the assistant chief secretary and territorial candidate secretary of Salvation Army PNG, said the money would go towards their Red Shield Appeal.
“That’s where all the money that comes in goes to, and will be used to conduct social work and community service,” he said.
“The money will be used for health (health centres and clinics), education (elementary schools operated by the Salvation Army) and disasters that happen around the country.”
He said they also carried out activities such as feeding homeless people and prison visits.
The Malaysian Association of PNG has been supporting Salvation Army PNG since 2010. The association supports between 20 and 30 organisations through funds raised at a main fundraising event every year.
Fundraising event chairman Ivan Lu said they were planning to hold a fundraising event in September.
“This year we have set the date for the 20th and 21st,” he said.
“We are hoping to reach K900,000 to K1 million.”
Malaysian High Commissioner Mohamad Nasri Abdul Rahman said he was happy with the work of the association in the country.
