1. Schoolchildren bus fare assistance. Two Filipino companies have come forward to shoulder the cost of the Tembari schoolchildren’s daily bus fares from the ATS Oro Settlement to their respective schools around Port Moresby. For several days now, the children have been missing school as they don’t have K2 for bus fare. Their guardians and bubus cannot just afford this daily expense. The school principal at Ward Strip school has warned Tembari management that she would drop the children from this year’s roster if they continue missing their classes. To help out, the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Ltd and Paradise Business Consultants Ltd – both in Port Moresby – will equally share the K1,000 monthly expense of Tembari’s 30 schoolchildren, according to Zeny Ala, a top executive of ABC. Her company is engaged in contracting and construction. Headed by general Manager Jovy G Baltazar, Paradise Consultants deals with immigration and business documentations and related services. The funds was turned over to me on Friday, September 28, 2012.
The generous foodstuff donations.
3. Methodist Church of Papua New Guinea cheers up Tembari kids. The Methodist Church of Papua New Guinea composed of Malaysian, Taiwanese and Chinese expatriate members visited the center recently to cheer up the children with goodies, songs and games and prayers. The group brought with them supplies of rice and other foodstuff good for several weeks. The visitors were headed by Andrew W Tiong, general manager for operations at RH (PNG) Group. This group also came to the center last year to donate foodstuff. Methodist Church in Papua New Guinea is the only Chinese Christian Church in Papua New Guinea. At present it has preaching centre at Vanimo and Kimbe. Majority of the congregation are people from Malaysia, Taiwan, and China. The interest of The Methodist Church in social welfare springs from the Bible teaching.
4. Movie treat for Tembari kids. Recently, 60 children age from 4 to 12 and 11 guardians were treated to an animated 3D movie at Paradise Cinema – a modern movie house at Vision City Mega Mall. The generous sponsor was RH Trading, whose HR & Administration manager Daneilla Tio coordinated the whole affair. The kids, who were treated with movie snacks, watched a 3D animated movie, their first experience in movie house cinema. After the show, the mall manager took the kids for a tour of Vision City’s shops and facilities. Three buses came to Tembari center to shuttle the kids to the mall and back to the settlement. RH Trading is a regular donor towards Tembari feeding program.
Despite all these good news, the Tembari Children’s needs, like for instance, food, grow every time. Improving their daily nutrition is a priority concern of Tembari management.
