In a statement, the Foundation said: “The PNGCF wants to encourage the men of PNG to start the conversation about cancer and educate them on how they can protect themselves, their families and friends from the disease.

Two smartphones for cancer foundation

Corporate Sales Manager of Digicel Business, Peta Kanawai, said this yesterday when presenting two smartphones and over K2000 to the PNG Cancer Foundation in Port Moresby.

Digicel PNG partnered with the Cancer Foundation to deliver two awareness workshops this year and has since continued on with the donation of two phones and cash.

“For Digicel to partner together with the Cancer Foundation and also through Women in Leadership League, it actually empowers our own staff and creates that awareness,” she said.
