Two separate fire incidents, one on Saturday and another this morning, have left close to 500 people homeless.
By 3pm this afternoon, more organisations, including Rotary of Boroko, the Red Cross, Mondo Clothing, Pure Water and China-PNG friendship association, came with donations of cash and kind.
The fire appeal committee hopes to raise at least K2.5million.
"One house costs about K60,00 to build. The donations reached K190 000 already. This will cover for three houses. We have 15 more," said community leader Dadi Toka Jnr.
