As you can gather from all these messages of thanks it takes many people to make this charity a success. On the ground working tirelessly for others we have to especially thank the mid wives and the people of Kiriwina.

Thank you Toks, without the continuing support from you and your family Caring for Kiriwina would not be the successful, smooth running professional charity that it is today.

Another 50 birthing kits are winging their way to Kiriwina, they should arrive before Christmas, fingers crossed.

Merry Christmas Kiriwina!

Thank you to the Team at Caring for Kiriwina who work tirelessly to keep a constant supply of disposable Birthing Kits and Birth Certificates in production.

A special thank you to Diana, Kylie (and Tom) Adams who do such a fantastic job putting the kits together and the essential support we receive from the Yarralumla Uniting Church Canberra. THANK YOU!

CFCTorchAnyone out there have working torches that they want to donate to the Kiriwinan village health volunteers? The Mid Wives are in desperate need of torches. PLEASE HELP!

We have been sending very simple, but effective birthing kits to the island for a number of years, and the success rate has been incredible. Infant and maternal deaths have decreased by 1/20 babies delivered per month, and we are working with local women to support them as they support birthing mothers. One of our big hurdles is the expense and difficulty of sending these kits to the island: although the kits are each quite small, as we send larger numbers the volume and weight has increased the costs. We also often have difficulty getting the kits through different points in the PNG postal system, and they can get lost or held up indefinitely. Kiriwina is a remote place! Hopefully these kits will arrive without incident.
