Settlement Programs Port Moresby Papua New Guinea

Many settlements on the outskirts of Port Moresby consist of ''shanty towns". Dwellings have been built from old timber and iron remnants which have been dumped on the rubbish dumps in the area. There are large numbers of poor families living in these areas. Many have been marginalised and forgotten by general society.

On regular occasions our volunteers visit some of these communities to give emotional support, dignity and hope to the families. As part of our visitation, we conduct programs which include music and stories to encourage the community. When our team leads out in these programs the children energetically and happily participate with our team members.

One of the highlights the children enjoy is when our volunteers provide light refreshments. This is considered a real treat by the children.

When clothing is available we provide these much needed items to the poor and destitute living in these settlements.

Meet a Special lady making a difference  

The sign on top of a shop shouts out to us, driving  in the Port Moresby suburb of Erima located a few miles from Port Moresby Airport.  By all appearances for visitors passing by on the main road it gives the impression of being just another very poor area. But for the locals living in the region it’s much more than what first impressions might suggest.

You immediately feel a high level of discomfort if you take a side road into the community. Like the writer, a passenger with our volunteers, being driven into the heartland of this settlement for the first time.

Mariujuana is the currency used here. Drug traffickers abound.

The purpose of our visit, was to meet a very special lady, Ogasta Daniel. She is a Christian.

Two years ago, Ogasta  felt a calling to commence a care centre for the disadvantaged children in her locality by teaching basic literacy skills. As a result children attend daily from a variety of disadvantaged backgrounds.

What we did not expect was this!

The care centre was located under a house – see the picture of house and the area in which Ogasta teaches basic literacy to the children below.

She has virtually nothing to work with. No exercise books, no pencils, no basic teaching aids for the children. The little she has, Ogasta purchases with her own money.

Apart from a few ladies assisting Ogasta, she receives no financial funding or donations to help her make a difference to these children’s lives. Ogasta gives of her time voluntarily.

Ogasta gives of her time voluntarily. We are now regularly  providing much needed  food to help Ogasta feed the children .

Recently we received a donation to provide basic classroom resources for the teacher and children.This will include materials for teaching, exercise books and pencils.

“I was in prison and you visited me"

Faithfully every week, Reuben Alu, our Port Moresby Area Manager for Operation Food for Life, visits prisoners in Bomana Jail. There are over 1000 prisoners, including the ladies wing.Reuben is not only well known and respected by every prisoner, but considered a spiritual father by all.Annually Reuben hosts a special Operation Food for Life breakfast in prison.  All prisoners enthusiastically attend. Over the years, this annual event has been considered one of the prison highlights.Reuben stated, ‘’The food in the prison is very basic. The breakfast we serve is fit for a king - cereal, milk, fresh fruit, which we purchase locally.We always have a special devotional period leading up to breakfast. This is an opportunity to share both physical and spiritual food together.Every prisoner says a very appreciative big “thank you" when coming for breakfast. We respond, "Jesus loves you".’’This is part of the Operational Food for Life Mandate which Jesus inspired us to do. Feed the poor, visit the sick, clothe the naked and prison visitation.

Operation Food for Life supports patients in HIV/Aids and other Wards 

How would you feel if you were seriously ill, admitted to hospital and while all medical care possible is provided, the hospital does not have a budget to feed you? Your relatives have to feed you.

Welcome to the HIV/Aids and other Wards, where such is the case. In many instances  the relatives do not feed their loved ones because of the stigma associated with the virus.

Your Operation Food for Life team has been regularly feeding the patients in the wards, providing both physical and spiritual food to our special friends.
