Friends of POM GEN Receive Donations

The Remington Group in support of the Young Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce and Industry Kits4Kids Programme (YPOMCCI) donated a broad selection of high-quality medical hardware to the Port Moresby General Hospital Paediatric Ward on Monday.

Kits4Kids is the Brainchild of the YPOMCCI and is intended to provide simple medical kits to support sick children and to also supply basic medical equipment required by the PMGH Children’s Ward. It involves the participation of individuals and corporate members of the YPOMCCI through donations and voluntary community service.

Our donation of medical equipment consisting of stethoscopes, otoscopes, thermometers and blood pressure machines was warmly received by the Director of Medical Services Dr Kone Sobi and witnessed by a handful of Port Moresby General Hospital staff including the Director of Nursing Services Sr. Carol Hosea Bran, Acting Paediatric Coordinator, Dr Gwenda Anga, and Sr. Saira Mohka Paediatric Ward Manager. Dr Sobi highlighted that the Paediatric Ward does not charge a toea for its service to children between the ages 0-13 year’s old, calling attention to the time and devotion as well as the challenges faced by the Paediatric Staff.

Also at this presentation was CEO for Remington Group, Peter Goodwin, CEO of the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Stacey O’Nea, YPOMCCI President Natasha Austin, and representative from National Finance, John Lewis Modudula.

“The Remington Group is invested in young Papua New Guineans because we believe they are the future of this great Nation. We are always happy to contribute and assist in whatever small way we can and work with like-minded individuals/groups to support and make a meaningful and positive contribution to the communities in which we operate. We are truly Friends of the Port Moresby General Hospital”- Peter Goodwin CEO Remington Group.
