Fincorp donates K40,000 to PNG Highlands Earthquake affected communities

The assistance for earthquake hit communities continues and this time the Finance Corporation (FinCorp) Limited has jumped on board with a generous donation today.
FinCorp, part of the Grand Columbia Limited group of companies, presented a dummy cheque of K40, 000 through the Church Partnership Program (CPP) or CAN-DO church partnership, led by Caritas Australia and the United Church of Papua New Guinea (UCPNG), seeking to address the needs of the most affected communities in Hela and Southern Highlands provinces.

Managing Director for FinCorp, Tony Witham, stated that he was pleased with the efforts churches and other communities who reached out to help the earthquake affected areas.
“When we saw the devastation that happened in the Southern Highlands like everybody, we thought that we would like to give a small donation to people who have worked there and have helped the communities there,” said Mr Witham.

While presenting the cheque to UCPNG, Mr Witham stated that he had loved the work they had done and encouraged them to continue.
Meanwhile, following a comprehensive needs assessment undertaken by Caritas Australia, United Church and ADRA, it was decided that UCPNG will be using the money to procure and distribute starter kits – a spade head, a bush knife, an axe, a hammer, and a file – which will allow families to rebuild their homes.
