NGO donates K4,000 to injured students

Papua New Guineans continue to open their hearts to the injured University of Papua New Guinea students.

Non-governmental organisation (NGO), Partners with Melanesians Inc, yesterday gave K4,000 to meet the hospital cost of the four students still admitted at the Port Moresby General Hospital internal care unit.

Activist Noel Anjo said: "The money is from the public appeal. Not from a politician or any political parties.”

The students will get K1,000 each to foot their medical bills.

Tommy Aiyok, representing the guardians of the injured students, thanked the kind-hearted people who donated.

He said the four students are not Port Moresby based, and they do not have resources to support them.

"I appeal to the public to pray for the injured students who are still in critical conditions," Aiyok said.
