CPG Trains 19 Fish Farmers

Nineteen people participated. Eleven came from Aroma Coast villages, two from Keiva Village in Hiri District, and six were students from the Fisheries Department of the University of Natural Resources & Environment (UNRE). The students are currently on industrial training with the CPG’s Fisheries & Marine Resources Division.

The two- week training covered pond design, construction and installation, cage design and rigging, feed formulation and feeding methods, general fish farm management and site selection, and sex identification.

655 eye patients treated at Kupiano

More than 2,000 people also attended health promotion sessions.

The land-based healthcare team, in partnership with local health workers and the Abau District Administration, delivered optometry services, dental procedures and health education at Kupiano's Health Centre.

One of the patients seen was a 35 year-old mother of four named Openi. Openi was considered legally blind and could only see two metres in front of her. YWAM’s optometry team fitted Openi with a pair of glasses which enabled her to read, and see half-way down the vision acuity chart.
