Medical Equipment Donations reach Goroka

 Donations comprising oxygen cylinders and consumable items have started pouring in for Goroka Hospital early last week.

The donations for frontline health workers in the hospital’s Coronavirus (Covid-19) isolation centre, were contributed by the China/PNG Friendship Association in Goroka, Eastern Highlands.

Association chairman and Seng DA Business Group chief executive officer Bobby Chan said he had decided to play a more active role to help the hospital.

“We have raised K100,000 to buy oxygen concentrators and food stuff to support Covid-19 patients and the tireless frontline health workers,” he said.

“The Goroka Chamber of Commerce also brought in a container-full of medical supplies.”

Eastern Highlands health authority chief executive officer Dr Joseph Apa said he was grateful that the business communities, church groups and individuals were helping to raise funds for the province to fight Covid-19.

“We are running out of resources and the donations can make a big difference as the fight against the virus is far from over ,” he said.
