The charity organisation was presented with K10,000 from Trukai Industries as part of their ‘mama’s’ donation for being the winner of the 2019 Trukai Community Award Winner from this year’s Westpac Outstanding Women (WOW) awards.

Freda Yakio Pake is the wife of Collin Pake, the founder of Life PNG Care. Freda is referred to as their mama and teacher.

Young girl donates birthday

Instead of being the star of the event, Charmaine Teshawn Bawo Ray will be taking her birthday celebrations to Life PNG Care.

Life PNG Care is the home of disadvantage and vulnerable children.

The young girl from Northern and Manus Province will be gifting these children her birthday celebration.

Charmaine’s mother, Sheena Bawo, came up with the idea, calling it donate-a-birthday.

Charity car wash raises over K60,000

This has been made possible by a charity car wash held on Sunday.

The children are under the Strongim Pikinini Education Program by Life PNG Care, a local charity.

The car wash was part of a series of fundraisers to raise funds to sponsor these children.

The charity aims to raise K95,000 to meet costs such as uniforms, stationery, shoes, bags or even if there are schools charging project fees.

Mobile education program launched

The launching was held on Thursday at the Baruni road side, which is one of two locations that the program had been piloted in the last two months.

The program currently has 130 children registered; 50 attending the mobile school at Baruni and others at Gerehu Stage Six.

The curriculum used is the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) and elementary syllabus for beginners (ABCs).

Human resource key to development

This is the message from Life PNG Care National Director, Collin Pake, when receiving a donation of K1,500 from Port Moresby social club, Hash House Harriers.

He said a lack of leadership failed to address many of the social problems experienced in the city, particularly orphaned and homeless kids and youths, while more attention is given to other areas.

“The potential of our country is not in any other resources. Human resources are the building foundation. They are the key. And without human resources Papua New Guinea we’ll never change.

Charity group receive rice for Christmas Program

LPNGC director Collin Pake says he is overwhelmed with the donation given to them for their Christmas program.

“The Kina for Kindness program was an in house initiative suggested by six year old Sebastine last year during the festivities.”

Pake says since last year, we started this particular program where the kids themselves prepare meals for the donations we receive for this program and they walk the streets to pass out to theses meal to their peers.
