Baby Tomakam went for his 2nd review today.

The doctors suggested to the parents for the baby to be re-admitted for a second operation. However, the parents did not accept the suggestion and decided to take the baby home.

If there are any medical specialist teams interested in taking this cade on please let us know.

Timely donation for Grade 10 who are sitting for their mock exam. Good luck students :).

Thank you again to all our sponsors and donors for making this possible.

We are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bunu in the early hours of Saturday morning. CFK wishes to send its deepest condolences to his wife Iru and their children. We have very fond memories of spending time with the family in Canberra when they visited Tomwaya, as well as meeting up with the family when we visited Kiriwina during our VBA training sessions over the years.

PNGDF has lost one of its fine officers and Trobriand Islanders have lost a leader and Kavataria Village has lost one of its brilliant and well respected sons.

CFK continues to support our clean drinking water project by supplying our plumber with the support required for the upkeep of our 7 water pumps situated across the Island. Attempting to deliver a constant source of clean water to the Kirwina Secondary School students and the main village and 6 other villages. Many more water pumps need to be installed.

Photos of the recent repairs to the Kavataria village water pump. The plumber has also recently fixed Oyabia/Rabesi water pump as well. KSS and Kuluwa water pumps require parts to be restored.

Thanks to our fabulous sponsors and donors and Alotau Hospital for getting him this far in his journey.

Sending our best wishes for a full recovery.
