We are thrilled to announce – Caring for Kiriwina has been successful in our recent application to DFAT for an Australian Aid Friendship Grant!

The core basis for the awarding of this grant is to train village birth attendants to safely deliver babies in remote areas of Papua New Guinea.  For more information go to this link.           https://foreignminister.gov.au/releases/Pages/2018/mp_mr_181130.aspx

See screen grab above from the DFAT Friendship Grants announcement and CFK is first in line.

This funding will allow us to increase our core activities in providing birthing kits and materials, training and support for the Village Birth Attendants (VBAs) on and around Kiriwina. 

Thank you so much Friendship Grant Team for choosing our charity and thank you to all our sponsors and donors over the last 6 years, your support has made this grant possible.
