Nawaeb procures own medicines

Local MP, Theo Pelgen, allocated funding to source medicine from India to help supply the rural health centres and health posts amidst the nationwide drug shortage.

The medical drugs include paracetamol, amoxicillin and chloroquine.

The initiative commenced in August through the Nawaeb District Development Authority.

K50,000 for displaced students

The students had been displaced from accommodation privileges due to the earthquake last year in Goroka which led to them living off-campus.

Nawaeb MP Theo Pelgen highlighted the importance of supporting the human resources of the district.

Pelgen said the District was made aware of the situation of the students when they raised awareness of their plight this academic year.

NDDA CEO Buds Botikie said the support will go a long way to develop upcoming Teachers and Intellectuals of Nawaeb District.
