LGL begins support to island community

Lihir Gold Limited has begun community engagement and support activities for the health sector in Aniolam Island.

LGL recently donated a stretcher to the Palie Health Centre, which will complement the health centre’s ambulance services on the island community.

Specialist projects Clement Kaia said the ERT is keen on working together with the community in responding to emergencies as part of delivering assistance to rural areas.

He was accompanied by ERT training officer Max Chris and Emergency Officer Julie Piong to deliver the stretcher.

Palie Health Centre’s officer-in-charge, Julius Michel, thanked LGL, saying it would go a long way in helping the people in Palie village and surrounding communities.
