21 children from the Alotau General Hospital Paediatric Ward were gifted with goodie bags and ice cream from the Paradise Foods Limited team and RokRok biscuit mascot.
Nurse in Charge, Sister Judith Deuko said that this is a first-of-its-kind initiative by a local food company, and they are thankful to the team for visiting their ward, and lifting their spirits with these gifts.
Paradise Foods Limited Sponsorships and Promotions Manager Nicola Ani who was on ground said that they are always aligning what they do with their Company Mission, Values and Vision and they strive to do this through their community donations, activations and putting smiles on the faces of those in their communities.
The visit to the Alotau General Hospital prompted the Milne Bay Community Association (MBCA) and the Huhu-Tulau womens group to begin plans to fundraise to purchase a Lipid Analyser for the At-40 clinic.
The Milne Community Association will be hosting 2 major fundraisers this year – Kapole Fest in June and a Kapole Stringband Night in December.
In 2019, funds from the Milne Bay Night which was organised by the Association assisted the Huh-Tulau Women’s group to procure an eye scanner (Keratometer) for the At40 Clinic all the way from Calabasas in the United States.
The purchase of the machine was made possible through a donation from the Milne Bay Community group in Brisbane.
