Yesterday evening, we had a meeting with our CFK directors and in-country manager to discuss our successes in 2023 and to plan for 2024. We are grateful for this lovely group of people who are helping to continue the legacy of our founder, Margaret Lawton. Today marks the ninth anniversary of her passing, and we miss her every day. Margaret’s spirit guides all CFK decisions, along with the spirit of her husband, the Reverend Doctor Ralph Lawton. We are thankful for the time we had with them, and we know that their presence made the world a better place.

The most wonderful Margaret Lawton

Attention all! We have some breaking news! The wonderful people of Kiriwina are in for a special surprise ahead of Christmas, and it’s all thanks to the generosity of one kind-hearted Princess Cruise, Coral Princess passenger. Despite transportation disruptions, we have successfully sent four additional boxes filled with donations to the local infants, primary and high schools in Kiriwina. These boxes are packed with essential items such as pencils, erasers, and some warm knitted goodies to keep the little ones comfortable.

But that’s not all! Our major challenge has been getting the birthing and dignity kits to the area quickly since the airport is still closed, and there are no flights going in or out of Kiriwina. And that’s where our hero comes in. This amazing Princess Cruise passenger has offered to help us get these kits to Kiriwina as soon as possible. The kits are scheduled to arrive on the day before Christmas, which will be a perfect gift for the people of Kiriwina.

We cannot express our gratitude enough to this person for their generosity of spirit. Their kindness is a shining example of the good that can be done in this world. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate this act of kindness and spread joy this Christmas season. Hallelujah!

Yesterday, our In-Country manager, Toks, attended a partnership meeting with Milne Bay Public Health Authority in Alotau. The meeting was a great success, and we are thrilled to report that Toks’ report was very well received by all attendees. Our collaboration with MBPHA has been wonderful, and we are grateful for their partnership. As we look forward to the new year, we are excited for the next meeting and the opportunities it will bring. We are committed to working together to improve public health in the region and beyond. Stay tuned for more updates on our progress!
