YWAM MS CO-PATRONS MRS. MARAPE AND ABEL POSITIVE AFTER CANBERRA MEETING

In a series of high-level meetings held in Canberra last week, Mrs. Rachael Marape and Mr. Charles Abel, Co-Patrons for YWAM Medical Ships – Australia & PNG (YWAM MS), engaged with key Ministers, Senators, and Members of Parliament to continue to strengthen the relationship between Papua New Guinea and Australia.

These discussions focused on several strategic objectives to continue to collaboratively enhance healthcare delivery and youth empowerment in Papua New Guinea (PNG), including extending the life of the medical ship, MV YWAM PNG.  

The emphasis was on the collective efforts of the governments of PNG and Australia to strengthen people-to-people relations, while working to improve health outcomes.  

This collaboration involves PNG national health workers and volunteers partnering with volunteers from Australia and other countries to deliver medical and dental services to remote locations of the nation.

 “As a voice for women in Papua New Guinea, I am committed to advocating for their health and well-being,” Mrs. Marape said.

 “Our discussions in Canberra have continued to strengthen the longstanding relationship between our nations, emphasising the key role women play in sustainable development and improving health outcomes in PNG.” She added.

“The initial positive responses to the extension of life of the MV YWAM PNG were encouraging, and I look forward to seeing the fruit of our meetings continue to build a vibrant future for both PNG and Australia.” Mr. Abel stated.

 A health patrol team, consisting of YWAM MS volunteers and Emeti Health Centre community health workers (CHWs), just completed two and half weeks of clinics along the Bamu River, Western Province. In just one location, the team was able to assess 148 patients, including 74 children for routine childhood immunizations.
