 A UNITED States of America based organisation, 4Life International, donated K3,900 and goods to an orphanage in Port Moresby yesterday to support its Strongim Pikinini programme. 

The orphanage is run by Papua New Guinea Christian Community Services Inc, which has operated community programmes reaching the most vulnerable and marginalised children since 2006. 

The programme supports at least 55 children. 

4Life Oceania managing director Evelyn Thom said the money would support the programme pay for a driver for the school children.

“We will continue to support this programme because we believe in giving back to the communities,” he said. 

Board member Jerry Pais thanked 4Life International for their support.

“We don’t always get support from the government or other organisations but from a few individuals and churches,” he said.  

“We operate on faith to give hope, new life and mindset to our children.” 

National director Collin Pake said their problem was land and space, which was they only had 10 children at the house. 

“We have secured land. We should have a bigger place in the future to take in all these children,” Pake said. 

The goods donated included toiletries, stationery and 120 packs of nutritional supplements.
