Kungumanda midwifery students graduate

For a first time traveler passing through the now famous Tsak Valley, one would be pleasantly surprised at the faces you come across.

Situated on Kungumanda or known to locals as USK (United States of Kungumanda), this vital training facility produces community health care professionals specialised in midwifery.

Students from as far as the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Manus and the Solomon Islands make the journey into the heart of Enga Province to attend the Kungumanda Four Square Community Health Workers training school.                                                 

This year saw its sixth batch of 25 graduates and Minister for Planning and Monitoring, Member for Yangoru-Saussia, Richard Maru, was invited to officiate at the ceremony.  

In his remarks, he emphasised on the importance of a preventative approach to health care in the country.

Minister Maru encouraged the graduates to engage and be competent and compassionate health workers who deliver a responsive service to the healing ministry – both spiritual and physically.

Minister Maru, while in Wapenamanda, also attended the joint Foursquare agency schools graduation, where he witnessed primary, high school, secondary and TVET achievements.                      

He advised the graduating students to have a dream and strive in achieving it, also stressing on the importance of Godly education.

He also made a commitment of K500,000 to assist the Foursquare Church with its TVET courses program.
