MP Soroi Eoe, who is also the Minister for Religion, Youth and Community Development, made this undertaking following a tour with the YWAM Medical Ships at the Port Moresby Harbour on Tuesday (Nov 14).
Eoe said Gulf Province was the first in the country to invite the YWAM Medical Ships, under leadership of former Governor Havila Kavo.
He said many delta communities were treated on the medical ship since its involvement.
“I acknowledge the tremendous work YWAM is doing in Papua New Guinea and also in my very own Kikori Open electorate,” said the MP.
“Kikori district is a very challenging district that is made up of a mixed geography of steep mountains, fast flowing rivers, with hundreds of tributaries along long meandering rivers on delta flood plains.
“As government, we have our limitations and partners and faith groups such as YWAM Medical Ships play a very crucial role in assisting us.”
Minister Eoe said in his tenure, he wants to see changes take place right at the village level.
“I want to see that policies are not just paper documents but are living documents that are effective, realistic and produce results. I am not afraid to trial many new initiatives in my district,” he stated.
