YWAM Medical Ships Australia & Papua New Guinea (YWAM MS) is delighted to share that we plan on redeploying the training and medical ship, MV YWAM PNG, from Townsville to Papua New Guinea on January 28th, 2021.
The ship will initially be positioned in Port Moresby in a state of readiness. After receiving an invitation from the Western Provincial Health Authority, plans are now underway to resume healthcare patrols to remote communities in June for an initial 6 month engagement.
A number of exciting ventures will also commence in 2021, including:
- Establishing a satellite vocational training campus in Port Moresby to help increase accessible training options for young people
- Actively working toward delivering a fully fitted out medical and dental semi-trailer for engagement in schools in the National Capital District
- Establishing a community radio station in Port Moresby
More information on the above is outlined in this document.
We are looking forward to the year ahead and are so grateful for the support that has been extended during such an unprecedented season.
