e-NEWS COVID-19  Please help.


CFK maintained Kavataria Water pump servicing over 5,000 people. 

WOW, what a difference a month makes. We are all reeling and trying to adapt to the ‘new normal’, however please do not forget those less fortunate. 

In addition to the education initiatives on Kiriwina of promoting safe birthing, healthy water, sanitation and hygiene:

  • we have launched a coronavirus education campaign on hand-washing, hygiene and distancing to prevent any possible spread.
  • our in-country manager is working with the Health and Hygiene Committee and the Village Birth Attendants to establish education sessions to promote public hand-washing stations.
  • we are distributing the soap and face masks to the Losuia Health Centre.
  • we are distributing education material to help reduce the stress and anxiety around the COVID-19 pandemic.

At present, our funds are very low. As well as our commitment to supplying regular shipments of birthing kits, we are endeavouring to supply, install and maintain hand pumps throughout Kiriwina that can supply clean water to each village. We desperately need your help. If you are able, please consider a cash donation using the link below, even a small tax deductible monthly commitment will make a huge difference and will enable us to continue our work.

Thank you for your support. Until next e-news, please take care of yourselves and each other.
