PNGOC deliver bed sheets to POMGH

<p>The presentation was made by members of the PNG Athletes Commission, Power Lifter Linda Pulsan and Paralympian, Francis Kompaon.</p>

<p>The brand new sheets are from the 2015 Pacific Games. The donation was a fitting gesture as a way to say thank you as the PMGH also served as the emergency referral hospital during the Pacific Games.</p>

<p>“The hospital needs all the help it can get to care for our people and we hope that these bed sheets can contribute to that in some way.</p>

<p>“I would also like to encourage all the patients in the hospital to be strong and have faith that they come here to get well and go back home again – while they are here these sheets can help to keep them comfortable while they recover,” said Pulsan.</p>

<p>Project Officer Corporate Services of PMGH, Shirley Iewa said the donation was a bonus for the hospital and will go a long way in helping them care for the patients.</p>

<p>She said the PMGH has 961 beds and every day bed sheets and covers need cleaning.</p>

<p>“Care for the patients is the main goal of the hospital’s service and the donation of these linens is a big bonus and we really appreciate it,” said Iewa.</p>

<p>Kompaon added that the PNGOC through its sub committees such as the Athletes Commission run a number of community programmes and this was just one of them.</p>

<p>“As the country’s elite athletes, we represent our people so if and when we can we are happy to give something back to the community and this is one way to do that so I’m happy and feel really good to be doing this,” said Kompaon.</p>
