Coronavirus response

Many of you will be aware that so far (at least compared to the UK), Papua New Guinea has largely escaped the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Alas, from these recent news articles – BBC News and ABC News – this no longer appears to be the case.

In response, PNGCP’s Committee agreed last week to provide grants for the Church’s dioceses and Anglicare in Port Moresby. Diocesan Health Secretaries and Anglicare will be able to spend as they see most appropriate with a recommendation that the grants be used to help provide clean water supplies and promote good hygiene.
