City Mission and Haus Ruth get added boost

The Port Moresby City Mission and Haus Ruth received help and are now equipped to run their rehabilitation programs in 2016, thanks to Bank South Pacific (BSP).

BSP’s Port Moresby and Boroko branches teamed up to deliver the project to City Mission and Haus Ruth,  because of the organisation’s dedication towards helping women and youth in Port Moresby.

Port Moresby branch renovated and repainted Haus Ruth’s kitchen, built  the footpaths and bought new materials for the women to sew curtains for the common hall.

The team also purchased new cooking pots, pans, rice cookers and kitchen utensils.

Branch staff volunteered two weekends to help in cleaning up, painting, and cementing the footpath.

BSP Boroko worked out doors with installation of a new water tank and a pump at City Mission’s Koki compound and purchased vegetable seeds for  the mission’s Mirigida Farm on the Magi Highway.

“We believe that this contribution will practically help to build and change lives for people in our community though the organisation’s rehabilitation programs,” said Maureen Wanu, Boroko branch manager.

To top it all, the team handed over a commercial washing machine, a 6 burner gas stove, and 2 commercial refrigerators to Haus Ruth.

City Mission’s CEO, Pastor Ronald Brown thanked both branches for the community projects. He added that this significant contribution will go a long way in assisting young men and women.

“Thank you BSP for support, and we value the great relationship that we have with corporate organisations and individuals who support our work each year. This will certainly boost our work in the community,” Pastor Brown said.

Branch managers of Port Moresby, Diana Guria, and Boroko branch, Maureen Wanu, shared  the same sentiments thanking City Mission and Haus Ruth for allowing them to conduct their projects.

“BSP has been investing in a diverse range of community projects, including health, education and sport programs in the community. Through this  relationship with the City Mission and Haus Ruth, BSP is able to assist in touching and changing lives of each women that walks into Haus Ruth, and the young men that City Mission will support in 2016,” said Dianne Guria.

In 2015, BSP Branches and Strategic Business Units (SBU) would have successfully delivered 39 communities with worthy projects nationwide.
