This is the reason why Ward Member for Paramana village along the Aroma Coast, Kiki Geno, is appealing to authorities for medicine to be supplied for the aid post that has remained neglected for two years now.
The founder of the Paramana Strangers band told Loop PNG that the aid post has been without medicine since it was built back in 2015.
“When people get sick, we have to take them by PMV or any other car down to Port Moresby. Some people have even died on the road,” said Geno.
“Over 20 people have died in the last two years. It’s a real problem.”
