Today we are remembering those ANZACs who served in partnership with the Kirwinan people in WW2.
Thank you Diggers for building the Losuia airport strip, the most vital piece of infrastructure on Kiriwina, still in use today. As we discovered after the damage caused by the election violence in 2017 it is relatively impossible to reach the Island unless you are prepared risk your life on a two day, potentially death defying sea journey. @DFAT, #DFAT @FriendshipGrants,#LestWeForget #AnzacDay
As a result of this wonderful partnership we are sending over another 20 lanterns for VBA’s, That will be an extra x 2 per circuit, and hundreds of batteries. Safe journey. @dfat.gov.au, #FriendshipGrants, #AustraliaAid
He is going over to receive check on the damage from cyclone and receive a progress update from the VBA’s and start to organise our next training session, which is now looking like September 17, 2019. He will have with him another 40 birthing kits, including washable menstrual pads, muslin wraps and batteries for all the torches we have sent over. These are on their way thanks to our friendly Post Officer, Hunter, our packers, Diana and Kylie Adams and all our wonderful sponsors and donors. Thank you one and all!. @dfat #AustralianAid.
