 FIFTEEN volunteers from Sydney and Melbourne are in the country to renovate clinics and school run by Hope Worldwide in Port Moresby. 

The Hope Worldwide Corp team came from Australia on Monday and started working at the 9-Mile clinic on Tuesday and yesterday and will move to other centres.

Papua New Guinea country director Joan Timothy said the team was lead by Dr Mark Timlin and they volunteered to come here.

Timothy said they would be here for a week to repair and paint clinics and the Hope Worldwide school at 6-Mile in Port Moresby. 

She said they had received support from a few business houses and PNG Ports had given K2,500.

“But apart from the support most of the working materials were brought from Australia,” she said.
