Christmas comes to Cheshire Home

The 21 residents of the Cheshire Home were treated to food and presents by Air Niugini staff members last week in Port Moresby.

Staff from ANG’s corporate quality and safety department brought the Christmas spirit to the children.

Group leader Sonia Sebulon said from their own initiatives the team bought presents from money raised by their social club this year.

“We were able to buy little things like chocolate, sweet biscuits, fruits, toiletries, tinned food and rice. But most importantly, seeing smiles on the faces of these children gave us great satisfaction,’’ she said.

Cheshire Home administration assistant Manuka Igo said the operations of Cheshire Home depend entirely on donations from individuals and organizations and such a gesture from ANG staff meant a lot to these children.

“Most of these kids don’t even know who their parents are. Of the 21 kids being looked after here, maybe about five have parents that come to visit them but the rest are taken care of by the staff here.

“That’s why spreading good cheer, sharing with them and seeing the smile on their face makes all of us happy,” Igo said.
