Over 250 frozen food supplies for organisations

The food donation comes under an initiative by ExxonMobil PNG (EMPNG) staff to donate food items to assist community groups during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Bel Isi PNG's Danielle Winfrey was thankful to EMPNG's Social Club for the support, stating that the food items would be distributed to other partners who provide temporary safe accommodation for women and children who are survivors of violence in Port Moresby.

“We sincerely appreciate the EMPNG staff and management for their generous support. We know our clients will be very grateful,” she stated.

Air Niugini partners with Bel isi PNG

The initiative recognises the impact family and sexual violence has on employees, and the increasing costs to employers and businesses in general as a result of this.

Air Niugini Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Bruce Alabaster, said with the joint partnership now in place, airline staff who are faced with family and sexual violence can now be able to get timely assistance with well-coordinated processes and procedures in place to guide them.

Safe city for women, girls

He stressed on this during the recent Bel isi PNG’s walk to eliminate violence against women and girls.

The event on November 22nd saw thousands gather at the Konedobu oval at dawn and march to the Harbourside precinct.

The march was led by Governor Parkop and Minister for Police, Bryan Kramer.

In Governor Parkop’s speech, he emphasised that it is everyone’s responsibility in the community to ensure the city is safe for women and girls.

Port Moresby safe house upgraded

Just days after hundreds of people rallied at Parliament House to support more action to address family and sexual violence, Port Moresby can expect a huge win with the comprehensive upgrade of a local Port Moresby safe house.

The upgrade is also a win for partnership. Last year the public private initiative Bel isi PNG (peaceful PNG) alongside Oil Search Foundation raised over K400,000 to support urgent infrastructure repairs for local safe houses.
