The staff of Nasfund brought Christmas joy to the mothers and children at Port Moresby General Hospital by donating more than one hundred gift bags during their recent visit to the Labour ward and the Paediatric wards.

Each gift bag for the mothers contained sanitary pads, skin-care products, baby blankets, diapers, wipes, and napkins whilst the children’s pack contained colouring books and pencils, including toys and snacks. The team also presented cakes and gift bags to the nurses on duty whilst second-hand bales of clothes were passed on to the Friends of POMGEN to coordinate the distribution at a later time this year.

The Operations and Communications Lead for the Friends of POMGEN, Ms. Grace Roland who was on the ground to coordinate the team’s visit stated that the Friends of POMGEN works in collaboration with the Board and Management of the Port Moresby General Hospital to sustain the hospital with other operational needs and the support of corporate organizations like Nasfund was greatly appreciated.
