We want to give a huge shoutout to Barb, a wonderful P&O passenger, for going above and beyond to deliver essential birthing kits and children’s clothes to our CFK Village Birth Attendant coordinator, Bokawau, last week.

Due to the airport closure, the delivery of these crucial items to our people on Kiriwina would have taken months, but thanks to Barb, they reached us in just a week! 🚢

We’re reaching out to any other passengers who might be interested in helping our cause. Your support can make a real difference and save lives. We will make sure to mail you the items. Please consider joining us in this meaningful endeavor! 💌

Last week, we had the joy of delivering Dignity Kits, pens, and pencils to the students at Kiriwina Secondary School. These kits and supplies will help support their education and ensure that they can manage their periods safely and hygienically.

Menstrual Hygiene Day, observed on May 28th, 2024, is a day of global significance. It raises awareness about menstrual stigma and discrimination, emphasises the importance of proper menstrual hygiene for maintaining health, and advocates for policies that support menstrual health and reduce economic barriers for women and girls.

Let’s work together to break down societal taboos and promote open conversations about menstruation. No woman or girl should be held back because of her period. Join us in raising awareness and working towards better menstrual hygiene for all! 💙🌸

We’re thrilled to share that birthing kits for cruise ship passengers are en route to support our wonderful Village birth attendants on Kiriwina. Due to a high pregnancy rate, we need more birthing kits, and the generous support from two passengers has made a world of difference for the hundreds of mothers and babies we aim to assist. We are grateful for the impact you are making! Special thanks to the amazing, incomparable Miss Kathy for volunteering to help pack these kits for urgent delivery. Thank you for your support! #MakingADifference #SupportingMothersAndBabies #caringforkiriwina #strongwomenstrongbabies #reopenkiriwinaairport #P&Ocruisepassengers #P&Ocruises #PacificPrincessCruises

Yesterday, we remembered the great Rev Dr. Ralph Lawton on the third anniversary of his passing. His contributions to the world and the Kiriwinan people will never be forgotten. It’s also been a year since the Kiriwinan’s organised a beautiful celebration of his life. Check out this short video of the event at LAWTON DAY 2023 – THE MOVIE – Caring For Kiriwina Ltd. Let’s honour his legacy by continuing to spread love and kindness in our communities.

We’re thrilled to announce that the latest batch of medical, knitted, birthing, and dignity kits have finally arrived in PNG! A big thanks to all the amazing volunteers, sponsors, and donors who made this possible. It’s always a moment of celebration when we receive confirmation that our much-needed donations have made it to Port Moresby. Now, we need to transport the supplies via plane to Alotau, followed by a slow boat journey to Kiriwina. We’re sending our best wishes for a safe and speedy journey to their final destination. Let’s continue to work together to support those in need!
