Dear all,
I returned from Kiriwina over the weekend to POM. Attach is the photo of the items delivered.
I delivered the items sent from Australia and the three phones. All the things were given to Ruth Boaz to distribute. The phones will be given to Ruth, Diane and Bokawau.
I received the sewing machines from Gina over the weekend. The electric one will remain in Pom for Caring for Kiriwina use and the hand sewing machine will be taken home and donated to the VBA’s on Kiriwina.

Everyone on the island are well and busy with harvesting of yams.
Thank you to everyone, these items are very needed.

The next lot of x 100 birthing kits are on their way thanks to your essential donations and the perfect packing of our volunteer packing team Diana and Kylie Adams.

Thank you so much for getting these kits turned around so quickly.

Now to the next x 150 required to be sent in the next month. Please DONATE to enable us to continue this essential work.

To all our Kiriwinan Mother’s, our Caring for Kiriwina partners and donors, our heart felt gratitude for your love and devotion.

Have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Dear lovely friends,

Thank you so much for your support for Caring for Kiriwina and our project to provide birthing training on the island.
I loved seeing so many of you on Sunday, I really really appreciate you all coming. I thought it was a great afternoon, and I personally came away with a very nice new frock!
Some of you couldn’t make it, and very generously donated through the website, thank you so much.
I’m very proud that we raised $2,760.00, what an awesome group of people you are!
A very big thank you to all the helpers: Jodi, Doug, Barbara, Geoff, Mary, John, Peter, Annabel, Rachel, Barbara P, Chi, Andrew, Csaba, Bertie, Kylie, Nina and Aimee, it couldn’t have happened without you!
And also a huge thank you to Blackwattle Bay Campus for their generous offer to use the cafe for the day.
So, onwards and upwards, Ill send an update when we get back early May to let you know how we go!!!
With love,
Vanessa (and everyone here at Caring for Kiriwina)
