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.

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.

Thank you to all the incredible, self sacrificing nurses. This pandemic has thrown a spotlight on the truly invaluable nature of nurses to our existence. We would especially like to thank the brilliant CFK Midwives, Shea Calpice and Jacqui Andrews and the wonderful Lousia Health Centre midwives Leness and Bokowau. Luv youes all!
