BSP aims to improve lives of Women and Children in PNG

Bank South Pacific (BSP) has continued its community effort in 2017 to improve the lives of women and children, through its Community Projects. The projects this year are chosen in line with the theme 'Empowering Women & Children'.BSP Wabag Staff were the first branch to deliver a new laundry and wait area for the mothers and children's ward at the Immanuel Lutheran Hospital, in Wapenamanda early this month.

The project required the branch staff to volunteer over the weekends to clean the project site and assist the contractor to complete the painting.  The branch staffs were also pleased to donate and install a new television for the ward.

Wabag Branch Manager, Ms Theresa Pilamp in handing over the project said "We are glad that our efforts and contribution to the community will go a long way in ensuring that mothers and children who are admitted here can now focus on treatment and recovery."

"Caretakers do not need to worry about going outside of the hospital wards to do the laundry. There is a wait area and new clothes lines to add." She said.

"We know that hospital stays can be challenging, with the new environment.  Women and their families need to travel long distances to come to the hospital for treatment and assistance. This is why; we believe that providing simple and added comforts for patients in the hospital can improve the whole hospital experience. "

"Our Community project aims to leave lasting changes and better experience for the people who use these facilities. It is with great pleasure that we handover this completed project to the Community," added Ms Pilamp.

Meanwhile, Port Moresby Branch presented cooking utensils and officially opened the newly constructed "hauswin" to the Moale Four Square Church in Kaugere, Port Moresby. Moale Haus is an orphanage centre run by the church has been in operation for more than 10 years, runs literacy programs for the community and also caters for orphans and the homeless and.

The team at Popondetta Branch renovated a classroom and installed a new water tank for Popondetta Elementary School in Oro Province.
