Many settlements on the outskirts of Port Moresby consist of ”shanty towns”. In one location 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 food and clothing (shipped up from Australia).emotional support, dignity and hope to the families.
