ANGLIMP South Wahgi MP Jamie Maxtone-Graham has committed K800,000 towards fighting HIV/AIDS in his electorate.
The bulk of the funds would be used to buy two vehicles and build two care-centres in Minj and Anglimp Districts.
The administrators of the care-centres and others involved in the battle against HIV/AIDS thanked Mr Maxtone-Graham for his
part, saying they were fighting a losing battle without much support and the MP’s help was a light of hope.
Commemorating World AIDS Day this week at the Kenan HIV/AIDs main resource centre in Kindeng, Deputy chairman for the centre,
William Pena said volunteers and district AIDS committee members were facing a lot of difficulties, especially when funds did
not come down to the “real workers.”
Mr Maxtone-Graham is also the parliamentary chairman on HIV/AIDS. Mr Pena said other MPs in the country should do the same by
supporting their workers involved in the fight against HIV/AIDS if PNG was to truly fight the disease.
