There seems to be a theme here with the looks on the faces of these baby boys… the unprecedented times look?… what a year :O.

Photos of GORGEOUS new born babies delivered by Kavataria VBA’s – to put a smile open your dial :). Photos taken by Melcah Bwaina.

Can anyone help? Due to many circumstances including COVID-19 closures we are in desperate need of these water buckets to fix our pumps, see photo. Any ideas?

Details as below for the rubber buckets and overall pump dimensions. Also refer the below photos.

Valve: 3,1/2 in ( 88mm ) outside diameter

Inlet : Tapped for  1,1/4. ( 32mm ) drop pipe.

Outlet open spout: 18, ½ in ( 470mm ) high.

Rubber: 73mm Outside diameter.

Inlet : 50mm Inside diameter.

In-country manager notes that due to Covid 19 restrictions on public gatherings only a hand full of VBAs were asked to come and distribute the items. Thank you to all our fantastic sponsors and donors for making this all possible!

The soap sent, two boxes have already being received and one box has been offloaded in Alotau.

The masks and sanitizers are still in Pom as the flights to Losuia have being cancelled due to not enough passengers travelling to and from Losuia. Hoping to get them over to the Losuia Health Centre asap!

While you are waiting for these PPE masks here are some DIY ‘do it yourself’ mask production instructions. Once the Kiriwinan translation comes in we will revise artwork and print some more posters for distribution across the Island.
