Homeless Children Receive Clothes and Food – A Generous Act of Kindness that Will go a Long Way

By Lillian Sopera Keneqa – EMTV News, Port Moresby

Homeless children living along the Boroko drainage in Port Moresby received a generous gift on Sunday, April 31. Kindness, clothes, home-cooked food, drinks and above all, love, will go a long way in these children’s lives, in the years to come.

Path finders, youth and members of the Seventh Day Adventist Bomana congregation went to the streets of Boroko on Sunday with one mission, to feed children who had no homes.

They met with the children living along the Boroko drainage, in the Nation’s Capital and distributed clean clothes, cooked food and drinks.

Community Service Leader, Elizabeth Andrews said. “We have seen them living on scones so we came to give them the foods and clothes because they need proper nutrition.”

The Bomana congregation has a community charity that not only does community work, but also prays and assists others when in problems.
Mrs. Andrews said they had already fed more than 40 homeless children living around Bomana after church on Saturday.

The congregation is mostly made up of police officers, wives, children and warders living at the Bomana College.

With a big smile, Mrs. Andrews added “This service is one of the most enjoyable works we ever do! When we feed them, and they are happy, we are also happy!”
