Gift packs for children, PMGH staff

Children and hospital staff at the children’s ward and neo-natal intensive care unit at the Port Moresby General Hospital were uplifted with food and gift hampers.

The gifts were from a group of staff from Westpac PNG Corporate Commercial Banking (CCB) team, who took time off last week to visit the wards.

The team of thirty staff were led by Westpac’s Head of CCB, Warren Bobin, as part of Westpac’s tradition to support charity activities in the communities where it most matters.

“Our team recognises the importance of help in times of need and in a small way, when people are feeling unwell and in need of some assistance and friendship, and it is uplifting to see the smiles on each faces as we walk in,” said Bobin.

The team visited the children’s ward 1B, which has 54 beds, IE with twelve beds and the neo-natal intensive care unit and donated 20 cartons of Huggies diapers, a carton of socks, mittens and blankets and 60 start-up packs for the babies at the neo-natal intensive care units.

Hospital staff and nurses at each ward were also given gift hampers apart from food packs.

Bobin also acknowledged City Pharmacy Limited for donating to Westpac by way of matching donations with additional ten cartons of Huggies diapers.

Friends of POMGen operations coordinator, Grace Ronald, while thanking Westpac PNG, said it was exciting to welcome Westpac and they were extremely grateful for the generous support to the hospital.
