Stories from Papua New Guinea

From the blog: The Oil Search Foundation in action

International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people internationally. The Oil Search Foundation celebrated IDAHOT by conducting a ‘lunch and learn’ presentation in the Oil Search office in Port Moresby.






The Oil Search staff-led tuberculosis (TB) food drive for the Kikori Hospital in the Gulf Province has received overwhelming support. The donations included 190 kilograms of rice, 7 cartons of noodles, 6 boxes of biscuits, 7 cartons of tinned food, 5 litres of cooking oil, and 70 packs of laundry detergent. Program Supervisor for the Oil Search Foundation, Chris’bourne Taput, officially handed over the food donations to Hospital Administrator, Mr. Larry Kaipu. The donations highlighted the importance of building on the existing partnerships to continuously strengthen support and deliver patients with the care and management they need.
