Pam Islands

A cry louder than the ‘garamut’

It was the cry of the Pam Islanders, to maintain their sea wall back home in Manus.

Representing the island village at the Manus Provincial Day was the Pam Social and Welfare Association.

This association was formed years ago to see to the welfare and assist the people of Pam.

Today, a more imminent threat is the rising sea level.

The association began a chain of fundraising this year for the rehabilitation of the seawall, now submerged by the sea.
