The St John Ambulance celebrated the National St John. Day in its 65 years of service in Papua New Guinea on Friday 24th June at their headquarters in Port Moresby.
St John Ambulance has been supporting the local communities by operating and providing a free emergency ambulance service, first aid education and volunteers services.
These have proven to be vitally important in improving our healthcare and supporting better health outcomes for the people of PNG.
Chief Executive Officer, Matt Cannon in his speech to staff this morning urged staff to reflect on how you have contributed to the mission of saving lives and providing communities with excellence in health care and health education.
“Take time to deeply reflect on the contribution you are making to the St John team and achieving our shared mission to serve others. You should be proud of the work do every day in saving lives”
“Our sincere thanks to the supporters and partners of St John for their tireless efforts in aiding and supplementing the vital lifeline St John extends through its ambulance services.”
The National St john Ambulance Council of PNG would like to congratulate and commend all its hardworking ambulance officers, staff, and volunteers in NCD and our regional stations around the country.
“65 years in the country is a milestone success. Today should remind us of all the work we do and the service we provide for our fellow citizens of Papua New Guinea.”
The St John day was commemorated with a staff luncheon and sporting fun games and activities for rest of the day.
