Anglicare Drop-in Centre, in Waigani Port Moresby, has recenty received cash and kind don’tions from international marketing company, JM Ocean Avenue.
The Centre that usually cares for HIV victims receiving treatment, was on the verge of closing due to lack of funding.
Anglicare Foundation says the don’tion will keep the Drop-in Centre open for the year.
The centre began operations in 2005 to help HIV Victims receiving treatment at Anglicare’s Voluntary Counselling Testing Centre.
Heni Meke is the National Director of Anglicare, she says that usually patients are weak after treatment, and the Drop-in centre was created to help them rest.
JM Ocean Avenue gave K4,000 cash and K7,400 worth of products.
The products were Suso hydrogen, a water purifier and Rooibos tea.
Mrs Meke was thankful for the contributions.
JM Ocean Avenue marketing executive, Julia Pokopia, explained that the company is located overseas, but has sales representatives here in Papua New Guinea.
She said the company’s owner is a Philanthropist who don’tes to charities and NGO’s. She said it was a part of the company to give.
Pokopia said this was their first time to don’te in PNG but it wouldn’t be the last.
