A 24-year-old man, who sells doughnut in Lae, has won a 2-Bedroom Kit Home worth K140,000 as the second runner-up of the Flame ‘Winim Haus’ Promotion.
Jonah’s entry was one of 300,000 received in the promotion by Goodman-Fielder International in September last year.
Jonah said the house would benefit his family as they are currently accommodated by relatives at the Bumbu compound in Lae.
Leevan Jonah graduated in Tourism and Hospitality in 2009 from Malahang Technical College in Lae. He told EMTV News that Catering was his field of interest.
The 24-year-old was employed with several companies in Lae. After injuring his hand during work in 2014, Jonah could not continue, so he resigned in 2016.
Since then, Jonah has been making doughnuts for sale to help sustain his father and his three brothers who are currently being accommodated by his uncle at Bumbu compound in Lae.
“I was completely surprised when I saw my names in the newspaper,” said Leevan.
A full set of materials to build the two-bedroom house were purchased from PNG Forest Products by Goodman Fielder International.
The winner and his family will organise a carpenter to help construct the house.
Goodman Fielder’s Regional Sales Manager for Momase, Christian Lucas, said the promotion is the company’s initiative to reward their customers.
“This is a way for us to give back to our loyal customers,” said Lucas.
Leevan is the oldest of four boys. Their mother passed away in 2008. His father, Nelson Jonah said the win was a surprise, and a blessing to his family.
“I would like to thank Goodman-Fielder for providing this opportunity,” said Nelson.
