In a statement announcing its support to the Hanuabada fire appeal, chairman Nathaniel Poiya said the ‘Big Village’ was an important stakeholder and the company will help in anyway it can to ease the suffering inflicted on the villagers.
Poiya said this when presenting K20,000 to representatives of the Hanuabada Fire Appeal.
PNG Ports is among several companies to assist following the devastating fire that destroyed 18 homes and displaced more than 200 people.
Poiya and Managing Director, Stanley Alphonse, conveyed their sympathies to them.
“On behalf of the management and staff of PNG Ports Corporation Ltd, let me express sadness for the destruction and loss of homes at Hanuabada.
“Recovery from this tragedy will take a long time and we at PNG Ports sympathise as you rise up and start your lives again.
“We can only hope that this contribution from PNG Ports will at least help rebuild your lives,” he said.
The K20,000 was donated along with clothing.
