Olsem Wanem – Episode 32, 2014

In this episode:


We feature the World Humanitarian Day that falls on the 19th of August. This day recognizes people and organizations that have committed themselves in serving and helping others in need, from violence on children, to natural disasters.

Human beings need shelter, food, and water and of course some love and attention.  But not so many people have access to all of these.


We find homeless children loitering on the streets; many as a result of broken homes while others, negligence by relatives.


These children are left to fend for themselves on the streets selling anything from smokes to even sex according to a report by UNICEF. Looking at these children one can tell that they have learned, from the raw and harsh environment they live in, skills to fend for themselves on the streets.


There is also the growing number of homeless people, not to mention the mentally ill people who have been left to fend for themselves.


Others who continue to have a low status in society and are vulnerable to abuse and neglect. Papua New Guineans are no different to many other people in the world. We often face issues that that can be minimized, while some are beyond our control.


At times hope can be found in people who are linked with organizations that have a heart to reach out, help and serve others in need.
