Aussies come good

Staff of the Australian High Commission and their families have given infants confined to the special care nursery at the Port Moresby General Hospital a new lease in life, The National reports.
Yesterday, Roxanne Martens, wife of Australian High Commissioner to PNG Ian Kemish, delivered 10 boxes (or 1,000 pieces) of naso-gastric tubes to nursery staff at the hospital.
Money to buy the tubes was raised by high commission staff and their families during their Christmas party last year.
The thin, flexible tubes are inserted through the nose of premature and sick infants, who cannot feed naturally, so that they could be fed their milk and medication.
Martens also took time out to visit some of the babies kept at the nursery under the guidance of sister-in-charge Maria Bernard. – Nationalpic by EKAR KEAPU
