Seventh-day Adventist churches in Lae distributed food and clothing worth thousands of Papua New Guinean kina to support flood-affected communities in the Morobe Province.

Primarily focusing on the villages of Mare and Gabensis, two of the worst-affected villages in the region, items donated included bales of rice, secondhand clothing, utensils, medicine, tools and food crops.

Blasius Managos, president of the Morobe Mission, also helped to distribute the donations to the villages, saying it was the mission of the Adventist Church to look after the physical wellbeing of people, not just their spiritual wellbeing.

Village leaders were grateful for the support, with one village elder from Mare thanking the Adventist Church for “having such a good heart to support the affected communities”, saying government support was not enough for the villages. The village magistrate also asked for support from the Adventist Church to assist his communities again in the future.
