e-NEWS Happy New Year ✨


Greetings for a prosperous New Year 2022 from the Caring for Kiriwina (CFK) Management team to all our generous donors from all over the world.

The 2021 year was a year of challenges with the emergence and rise of COVID-19 which affected many lives and the movement of people as well as the loss of lives of our loved ones globally. 

The operations of Caring for Kiriwina were greatly affected especially by the reduced level of donations we received from our donors during the year. Despite the effects of COVID-19, CFK managed to continue to support the people of Kiriwina during 2021. The support provided by CFK to the people of Kiriwina continues to help with basic care needs which greatly benefits the health and well-being of the people.

From our Caring for Kiriwina In-Country Manager, Toks Bwaina and the rest of the CFK Team

Rates of pregnancy have exploded on Kiriwina during COVID, donations have been declining and the Kiriwinan people are in urgent need of more birthing kits, birthing delivery equipment and contraception aids.

CFK maintained Water pumps service over 5,000 people. 

There is a high demand for clean drinking water for the village people on Kiriwina. Communities are in need of more water pumps to be supplied to enable them to have access to cleaning drinking water.

2. Oyabia/Orabesi pump is being restored and now operating.
3. KSS female pump is being restored and now operating
4. KSS male pump is yet to be restored due to a part required.
5. Kuluwa pump is in good condition and operating.
6. Kenobasi pump is in good condition and operating.
7. Oyabia Primary School Pump waiting for hardware coming from Alotau.

Great work everyone!!!


It was a joyous moment for David Max Ibwasa seeing him with full smile while pumping the water for himself. Couple of days ago he was carrying little containers to fetch water for his family but now the pump has made life easier for him coz its just few meters away from his house.

Thanks to the social media for making it possible for our lovely friends  from afar to react positively to help us. I and the Oyabia and Rabesi community want to send our sincere gratitude to CFK team from Aussie and Toks Bwaina from Pom with the local team here in Trobs for putting things together for our pump to function.. Thank you all so much. Kamatokisi.

From Enos Enos, from Rabesi Village, thanking CFK on behalf of Oyabia/Rabesi people.

Thanks to the CFK team especially Toks Bwaina for quick respond to get the local team to have the pump fixed as soon as possible. Not forgetting the other members of the CFK team who make things possible for our community. Kamatokisi Saina kwaiveka.
