Sirinumu Development Company or SIDCO is one landowner company working in PNG to bring back services to the impacted and affected communities.
Today, SIDCO commissioned their assets, worth K20 million under its community services delivery program.

The boats and the trucks will be strictly used for school runs only, while the machine will be for road maintenance to their feeder roads.
