The Caring for Kiriwina (CFK) Village Birth Attendant program provides vital maternal and newborn healthcare services to the remote communities of Kiriwina Island in Papua New Guinea. The program’s coordinator has been tirelessly working to receive birth reports, visit health villages, and distribute donations to support the CFK’s good works.

Images are of recently birthed, baby boys who were born at Losuia Health Centre between the 15th and the 18th of this month, and they received much-needed donations from the CFK program. These donations will help provide essential items like birthing kits, knitted clothing, and other necessary supplies for the new mothers and her babies.

The CFK program aims to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates by providing support to the village birth attendants and necessary supplies to remote communities where access to healthcare is limited. The program trains local women to become birth attendants who can provide essential maternal and newborn care services, including antenatal care, safe delivery, and postnatal care.

The CFK program has been successful in reducing maternal and infant mortality rates and improving the overall health outcomes of the communities it serves. The program’s coordinator is working hard to ensure that the program continues to provide essential services to the remote communities of Kiriwina Island.

Caring for Kiriwina (CFK) Village Birth Attendant program is making a significant impact on maternal and newborn health outcomes in remote communities of Kiriwina Island. The program’s coordinator, Bokawau, is doing an exceptional job of providing essential services and distributing much-needed donations to support the CFK’s good works. The CFK program is a shining example of how local solutions can provide life-saving healthcare services to those in need.

We are reaching out to you today with an urgent request for your assistance. Our organization needs your help to transport crucial donations to Kiriwina. Unfortunately, flights to Kiriwina are currently unavailable, and critical donations need to be transported immediately.

We are kindly requesting you to help us deliver a small backpack containing birthing kits. This small contribution could make a significant difference in the lives of many mothers and newborns. Your generosity can help save lives and provide the necessary medical supplies to people in need.

We appreciate the great work done by Princess Cruise passengers Bert and Lynn, who have already demonstrated their generosity towards this cause. We kindly request you to follow their example and join us in this noble cause.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at INFO@CARINGFORKIRIWINA.ORG.AU if you feel compelled to help. Every contribution, no matter how small, is deeply appreciated and will make a significant difference in the lives of those who receive it.

We assure you that our team members will collect the backpacks on the island once the boat arrives, and we will take care of all the necessary arrangements to ensure that your donation reaches the people who need it the most.

Thank you for considering our request, and we are looking forward to your positive response.
