DWU Madang students association to host cultural show

Chairman of the Madang Students Association, Richard Paraka, when highlighting the event to the media, said planning for the mini-show is in progress and the organising committee and students are already having high hopes that it would be a thrill come Saturday. 

Paraka said the Madang students’ initiative was hugely boosted last weekend with a surprise assistance  of K10,000 from the Member for Madang and Minister for Petroleum and Energy, Nixon Duban.

“We are so grateful to Minister Nixon Duban for such an assistance which is very timely,” he said.

Lions roar for local charity in Madang

Participants gathered as early as 7am to join in the charity drive which is aimed at raising money for the club's various charity activities.

The walk began at the Laiwaden Oval and headed towards town before turning into Kalibobo Drive and ended at the Tusbab beach.

Madang Lions Club president Joseph Natera thanked all those who took part in this worthy cause.

He extended a special word of thanks to students of the Divine Word University for attending the event and encouraged more youths to join the club.
