New PNG Project
Although Australia is living with COVID and we have learnt to wash or sanitise our hands many times each day, in Papua New Guinea the people are still struggling with the COVID pandemic. There is a lot of misinformation. The number of cases reported are not indicative of the real number of cases in the community.
So GFS Australia is starting a new project called
“Buy Soap, Give Hope 2022” Extra task – Make a mask
It is a hand washing and mask provision project for 2022.
GFS Australia will provide free packs for Papua New Guinea members which will contain:
· HOPE Poster
· Song for teaching Hand washing
· Poster for making Soap on a Rope / Stocking
· Pattern for making a mask
· Financial support to buy resources such as soap and material
· Soap, Rope, Stockings, material and soap holders
GFS members in Australia can:
1. Donate funds – Make deposits to GFS Australia Inc., BSB 016-494 Ac No. 185762465
This is the PNG account so money gets to the project directly.
