Sadly, another year has gone by without being able to travel to Kiriwina and train the Village Birth Attendants. However, we have managed to continue to supply as much essential equipment as we can to support their work. Below a testament to how these training programs have benefitted the Kiriwinan people. Our Christmas wish is that COVID circumstances improve worldwide and that we will all be able to travel safety to Kiriwina in 2022 and continue the good work with the support of our wonderful Kiriwinan’s and our sponsors and donors.

Merry Christmas from the VBA training team – CFK VBA co-director Vanessa Palfreeman, Midwife educators Shea Caplice and Jacqui Andrews and CFK co-Director Jodi Lawton xx.


The training of Kiriwina Village Birth Attendants (KVBA) for three consecutive years from 2017, 2018 and 2019 by qualified nurses and mid-wives from Australia, has now bear fruits to the KVBA. Approximately, 80% of the birth deliveries were conducted in villages and were attended by the KVBA’s. Only 20% of the deliveries were conducted at Losuia Health Centre. The training the KVBA’s have attained or acquired from the Australian mid-wives and nurses has greatly improved and enhance their skills in attending to deliveries. About 95% of the deliveries were successful and babies are now the testimonies of the work of these village birth attendants.

CFK supports the KVBA with birthing kits, torches, lanterns, birth record books, soap, umbrella’s buckets, and other necessities to assist them in their delivery routines.

Thank you

The water is running now for the students and teachers and the surrounding community. Unfortunately this is a short term fix. These photos are taken of the newly repaired pump while it is still working. This pump needs parts for maintenance which will take time and cost money, otherwise it will break down in a short period of time :(.

It was a joyous moment for David Max Ibwasa seeing him with full smile while pumping the water for himself. Couple of days ago he was carrying little containers to fetch water for his family but now the pump has made life easier for him coz its just few meters away from his house.

Thanks to the social media for making it possible for our lovely friends  from afar to react positively to help us. I and the Oyabia and Rabesi community want to send our sincere gratitude to CFK team from Aussie and Toks Bwaina from Pom with the local team here in Trobs for putting things together for our pump to function.. Thank you all so much. Kamatokisi.

From Enos Enos, from Rabesi Village, thanking CFK on behalf of Oyabia/Rabesi people.

Thanks to the CFK team especially Toks Bwaina for quick respond to get the local team to have the pump fixed as soon as possible. Not forgetting the other members of the CFK team who make things possible for our community. Kamatokisi Saina kwaiveka.
