We have been desperate to find a solution to the damaged water pump that serviced approx 5,000 people from the main Kiriwinan Village of Kavataria and have spoken to many organisations about possible solutions. At last we have managed to manufacture the missing part and we are now sending a Kiriwinan from the mainland, with the necessary skills, over the Kiriwina to fix the pump. Yeah!
Our In-Country Manager will be flying over from Alotau to Kiriwina towards the end of December with boxes and boxes of essential items. The x 74 headlamps were mailed yesterday and x 50 Birthing Kits including underpants and additional fabric/ reusable/washable menstrual pads have been sent to replace the disposable pads normally used. Rubbish is a massive problem on Kiriwina and hopefully this will help reduce the amount of rubbish on the Island.
