Oil Search employees bring Christmas cheer to Hanuabada families

Oil Search employees and contractors have helped spread some Christmas cheer with families of Hanuabada Village.

These were the families left devastated after a fire ravaged their homes this year.
“Christmas is a time of giving and reaching out to the less fortunate, especially those affected by tragedy,” said Wayne Kasou, Oil Search General Manager for Government Affairs.

“Oil Search employees and contractors in our Port Moresby and Sydney offices, including our site operationshave com  together to help the children, women and men that were displaced after their houses were burnt down with all their personal belongings.
“We hope that the donations of clothing, beddings, shoes, toys and various household items will support the outstanding efforts of the Hanuabada Village Fire Appeal Committee in helping these families rebuild their lives,” Mr Kasou added.
Dadi Toka Jr, co-chair of the Hanuabada Village Fire Appeal Committee was on hand to receive the
donations.
“Oil Search was the first company to respond a day after the fire, through its K10,000 pledge which helped to launch the Hanuabada Village Fire Appeal. It is only fitting that Oil Search and its staff help bring the year to a close with this final donation,” said Mr Toka.
Over 1,000 reading books were also presented to the children, the bulk of which are intended for Hagara Primary School where most of the affected children attend school.
Staff of Oil Search also contributed K2,300 in cash in addition to a further K10,000 donation made by the business.
Oil Search has a genuine commitment to ensuring our impact in PNG goes well beyond our position as the country’s largest oil and gas company and our people continue to drive this aspiration also through such voluntary or charitable efforts.
