Let’s recognise and appreciate the tireless efforts of VBAs like this one from Oseisuya Village who are making a real difference in maternal and newborn health.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the amazing Kiriwinan community, our invaluable partners, generous sponsors, hard working volunteers and kind-hearted donors for empowering us to continue our mission of serving those in need. Your unwavering support is the driving force behind our success, and we couldn’t have come this far without your selfless contributions. Thank you for being an essential part of our journey towards making the world a better place! xxx

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!

STRONG WOMEN, STRONG BABIES!

Thank you to all our sponsors and donors for helping keep our Kiriwinan mothers and babies safe.

As a non-profit organization dedicated to helping babies in need, we are constantly amazed and grateful for the generosity of our community. We would like to take a moment to express our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful knitters at Willandra Village in Cromer and the lovely ladies at the Belrose Country Club.

Over the years, the ladies at Belrose Country Club have supplied us with the most fabulous baby knits, including some pieces from the talented and lovely 101-year-old Norma. And now, in addition to our beloved baby knits from Belrose, we are thrilled to also receive knitted vests from the ladies at Willandra Village.

The beautiful and talented work of all our lovely ladies never ceases to amaze us, and their generous nature is truly inspiring. We would also like to extend a special thanks to Sandy and her husband John for their wonderful management of the donations.

We are so grateful for all the support we have received from our community, and we couldn’t do this without the kindness and dedication of people like you. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of babies in need.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who have made this journey possible. Despite the challenges posed by the lack of transportation due to the absence of flights to Kiriwina, which resulted in a treacherous long boat journey, we have successfully completed many stages and covered miles to ensure that the donations reach their destination safely. We are thrilled that our partnership with MBPHA is providing us with a secure facility at the LHC to store and distribute these life-saving donations. This achievement would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our team. Well done!

We were hit by a wave of nostalgia today as we reminisced about our CFK VBA training sessions on this day 2018. It is amazing to see how these targeted strategies have had a profound ongoing impact on our VBAs, which has helped them achieve stellar results. We want to extend a huge shout-out to everyone who was involved in making those training sessions a success. It’s incredible how this training can have such a positive impact for all Kiriwinans.!!!!

Thank you, all you wonderful donors, for all your kindness and generosity!!!
