YWAM, or Youth with a Mission, had the opportunity to sit down with PNG Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, and his delegation for a breakfast, to share videos of the efforts that YWAM is doing in Papua New Guinea.
O’Neill thanked YWAM and Managing Director, Ken Mullingam Oam, for allowing volunteers from around the globe to come to PNG and help many thousands of Papua New Guineans, living with some form of medical issue.
O’Neill was grateful to YWAM for their generosity and medical support in reaching out to the most rural remote areas of PNG.
Townsville Mayor, Jenny Hill, said the City of Townsville will be working closely with YWAM to ensure that business between the two countries is going well and that YWAM volunteers are well taken care of.
She said more and more Papua New Guineas will be engaged to be part of the outreach around PNG, and to be part of the extensive work that YWAM is doing in the country.
Mulligen said working in PNG with locals living in the most rural remote parts of the country who need medical help, and the joy and relationships he has witnessed between the volunteers is something very special he will never forget.
Mulligan said, with direct flights between Port Moresby and Townsville, the number of volunteers from around the globe is expected to increase.
