Papua New Guinea

About the community

Papua New Guinea is Australia’s closest neighbour, with only 160km between the two countries.

There are more than 850 languages spoken in PNG.

More than a third of children in the country are moderately or severely malnourished and the country has the highest infant mortality rate in the Pacific.

It is estimated that 75% of children in PNG live in households that have suffered domestic violence.

Only 50% of children like Ravu are immunised, making them highly vulnerable to serious but mostly preventable diseases.

Sponsor Now

Ravu and his mother both contracted Tuberculosis. “I was so sorry for my mummy when she was sick. I decided not to go to school anymore and just stayed at home with her.”

Sponsor Now

Grace is only 10 years old, and has suffered from tuberculosis twice. ChildFund-supported mobile health clinics reached children like Grace and Ravu with vaccinations, medication and health education.
