Bank South Pacific (BSP) today donated K10, 000 as part of its contribution for the YWAM gala night to raise funds to purchase a new medical vessel replacing the aging ‘Pacific Link’ with the new MV ‘Ammari’.
YWAM General Manager of Community Development Dr Sarah Dunn when receiving BSP’s sponsorship from the bank’s Area Manager Southern Region Nuni Kulu thanked BSP for the support towards the event.
“We’re looking forward for Gala Night which should help us to reach our targets.” Dr Dunn said.
Ms Nuni Kulu said that BSP was happy to assist because it saw the need to be proactive in YWAM’s work to reach the isolated parts of the southern region.
“As PNG’s leading bank BSP is proud to financially assist YWAM in its work to reach people in the isolated areas of the country,” Ms Kulu said.
YWAM aims to raise $5 million to purchase the vessel to deliver essential healthcare and training in coastal communities.
The new vessel will replace and increase current operations to overcome isolation and infrastructure challenges, reaching some of PNG’s most remote, vulnerable communities.
