Papua New Guinea Children Arrive in East Maitland

Four Papua New Guinean children have arrived for a one month stay as part of a RAWCS project being led by the Rotary club of East Maitland.

The children have been sponsored by a number of District 9670 rotary clubs for the experience.  They are attending East Maitland Public School during their stay, visiting many local attractions and taking home a wealth of experiences.  This is just one part of a RAWCS Project to improve education, health and clean water in the village of Nondugl, Western Highlands Province, PNG.

The children are very shy, and will be experiencing for the first time many things that we all take for granted – hot running water in the house, stepping onto an escalator, seeing the Ocean and looking for Dolphins.  They will also be visiting a number of Rotary clubs to thank them for their support of their Village.

Many thanks must go to the Rotary Clubs of East Maitland, Kurri Kurri, Maitland, Maitland Sunrise, Rutherford-Telarah, Paterson, Nelson Bay, Belmont, Morisset, East Maitland Public School and Ashton Gardens Retirement Village, Knitting Group for generously supporting the project with their time, skills, contacts and funds. 

A team of Rotary Volunteers will be travelling to Nondugl in November 2011 to install water tanks, provide sewing machines and teaching sewing skills, installing 15 second-hand computers at the school, delivering 30 hospital beds to the local Health clinic and 100 ‘Mother & Baby’ packs to encourage villagers to come to the clinic to have their babies.
