Ela Health Kit

Share the News
Last year on the 23rd September 2013, to commemorate the 50 years milestone celebration of Ela Motors; the company has put in motion plans, to provide 200 Ela Health Care Kits across the four major Hospitals, throughout each region in PNG.

The donation of the Ela Health Care Kits to the wider PNG community, is a show of appreciation for the rich history that both Ela Motors, and PNG have forged through partnership with the people, and communities of PNG.


The Ela Motors team has worked in partnership with the National Department of Health, to ensure these health kits met the needs of the hospitals, and the required health standard set by PNG.


Today, Ela Motors officially presented the donation of the first 50 sets of Ela Health Care Kits, to the Port Moresby General Hospital.


The handover ceremony held at the hospital, saw Ela Motors CEO/Director David Purcell, and the Chief Operating Officer Takeshi Abe, presenting the Ela Health Care Kits, to the POM General Hospital CEO Mr. Grant Muddle.


A jubilant Mr Muddle expressed his gratitude and said these kits would facilitate the increasing amount of mothers, and their new born babies in the Maternal Ward.


Also in attendance to witness the presentation were, the Sales & Marketing staff of Ela Motors, and members of the Board of Management of the hospital and staff.


The hospital staffs at the Maternity Ward, are delighted to be the first recipients of the Ela Health Care Kits. The Ela Health Care Kits consists of:

  • Hospital Beds, Mattress, Pillow & Sheet Sets
  • Bed Pans, Saline Stands & Bedside Tables
  • Disposable Masks & Examination Glove Sets
Following the POM General Hospital donation will be the other three major hospitals:

  • Angau Memorial Hospital – Lae
  • Nonga Base Hospital – Rabaul
  • Mt Hagen General Hospital – Mt Hagen
This program is part of Ela Motors’ Corporate Social Responsibility, but the challenge of providing basic health care services, and infrastructure, to the rest of the 85% rural based population of PNG, still remains with the National Department of Health.


And with a budget allocation of K1.4 billion for Health this year, one would like to think that, what happened here today, could be witnessed also in other parts of PNG.
