Water Tanks For Kido

NiuPower also announced this year’s community investment programs scheduled for all five-impact villages of Papa, Lealea, Boera, Porebada and Kido.

This year NiuPower will continue with the water tank program taking into account the changed methodology in distribution and the life skills training that will have advanced lessons.

Niupower’s External Affairs Manager Wellington Bellawa mentioned that they would be spending a little bit more money in education this year, with the building of a library each in Kido, Lealea and Papa.

Kido Receives NiuPower support

To enhance the training they donated manual sewing machines to the Kido Women’s Ministry at the launch. The training workshop targets women, girls and including those with disabilities.

This will run for two weeks with three trainees deployed at Kido to assist Lead Trainer, Anna Amos, a UPNG Arts School lecturer.

The locals will be taught basic skills in sewing, tie-dyeing and screen-printing and cooking to be included in a later training.

Strong winds blow houses over

At least three houses collapsed when they were hit by the strong winds and massive waves.

Kido village is situated off a point behind Rearea village and Gorohu-Manumanu in the Kairuku-Hiri LLG.

Information came in that the villagers, whose only mode of transportation is by sea, have been unable to move anywhere.

Those who were travelling on Sunday reported encountering gigantic waves that they have never experienced before.

They are now calling on relevant authorities, as well as the Central Provincial Government, to attend to their plight.
