Today marks the 5th anniversary of the passing of the beloved founder of Caring for Kiriwina, Margaret Lawton. She is forever in our hearts and minds. We are sure that she would be thrilled with the progress her charity has made. She and her husband Ralph dedicated their lives to helping the people of Kiriwina and we have pledged to follow on with this good work in their footsteps.

We are so grateful to mid wife extraordinaire Shea Caplice for hosting this wonderful fundraiser and the bands that volunteered and preformed to raise funds for Caring for Kiriwina: The last born: Midwife Sheryl, Sally and Jason – kicked us off and Lionel Robinson and the in crowd took us out. Just brilliant!

Another 400 birthing kits and 100 Dignity Kits heading to the Losuia Heath Centre, our VBA’s and the Kiriwina High School. Hopefully they will arrive with the other three boxes that we sent last week as an early Christmas present. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors and volunteers and Australia Aid for making all this lifesaving work possible. @DFAT, @AustraliaAid, @FriendshipGrants, #DFAT, #AustraliaAid, #FriendshipGrants.
