Thanks John!

This is what these mothers seem to be saying as they proudly show off their new cooking pots donated to their feeding programme by John Whitfield, general manager of Port Moresby –based Pacific Towing Ltd last week.

 Worth more than K500, the two 30-liter pot can each hold soup dish enough to feed the 83 orphan and abandoned children under the care of the Tembari Children’s Care (TCC) Inc, where these mums work as volunteers.

 Mr Whitfield was prompted to send the pots to TCC after seeing a picture emailed to him showing the mums in one of their cooking sessions while working on a small pot overflowing with boiling dish.

 He told a TCC volunteer-worker who sent him the picture: “The pot is too small to hold enough soup for the kids and it looks like it will not last that long … let me buy you a bigger one so you could do your job easier.”

The new pot was first used in cooking last Saturday’s special meal – pumpkin-rice soup -- for the kids.

The lunch meal was sponsored by a Filipino expatriate-manager who works at the PNG LNG project.
