​Bongre returns home

​After three weeks at the Port Moresby General Hospital, Bongre Anton Peter has returned home, to Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province.

He was diagnosed with Stage 4b retinoblastoma.

He flew back at 3pm yesterday afternoon, with parents Sinta and Anton Peter, where he was met by Simbu Children’s foundation president, Jimmy Drekore.

SCF will be offering palliative care to Bongre.

This is the first SCF and also the first palliative care implemented in the country.

“Palliative care is more like welfare care,” said Michael Williams, SCF volunteer.

“So we will fix his house and whatever he needs, we’ll try to provide – air-condition, fridge, a small TV, playground; basically, we want to give him as much fun as he can have.

“We have also engaged sisters at Susu Mamas up at Goroka. They will come only during the time he needs medical care.”

Micheal Francis Konduagle, another SCF volunteer, said the work doesn’t stop here.

“We still have a long way to look after Bongre, so I appeal, if there are people touched by Bongre’s story and want to sponsor, the donations still continue,” said.

To assist, donations can still be made to the Young & Williams trust account.
