Papa Lealea is one of three communities in the Central Province that houses the PNG LNG Plant site. Although the multi-billion kina investment is located in their area, water and sanitation have remained a problem since then.
However on Wednesday, Kairuku-Hiri MP Peter Isoaimo facilitated the opening of a new water supply for the village. Standing at a cost of K5million, the water supply will serve hundreds living along the Papa and Lealea coastline.
“My good people, we must welcome development because there are thousands who are in dire need of such developments,” said MP Isoaimo.
The MP also announced that his administration will work in close partnership with the Central Provincial Government in making sure the Province’s visions are met and basic government services are delivered.
The same project will be delivered to Porebada and Boera Village.
