WeCARe Foundation Holds 7th Christmas Picnic
Children from Elementary Schools and care centers around the Nation’s Capital, along with those living with disabilities, yesterday had a fun filled day at the Port Moresby Nature Park.
They attended a Christmas picnic organized by the WeCARe Foundation. The picnic is an annual event, and yesterday was its seventh.
More than 400 marginalized children from the 8 different Elementary Schools and Care Centers in settlements around the city that are supported by the WeCARe Foundation had the time of their lives. Yesterday’s Christmas picnic was especially for them as it included games like cricket, tug-of-war, shooting balloons and tins and many more. Some PNG Kumul players were also there to teach the kids on rugby skills. There was also a live band performance.
This is the foundation's 7th annual picnic and it was made possible through Digicel Foundation (who also supports the running of the foundation), Cricket PNG who provided cricket equipment and NRL PNG.
Fr. John Glynn who is the Founder of WeCARe Foundation and has been in the country for 50 years now, said the Foundation was created to close the gap between in basic services reaching the people.
Digicel Foundation Program Manager for Community development, Rhoda Moses, said Digicel is proud to support WeCARe because that is what Digicel Foundation also stands for.
The day ended with the children enjoying a sausage sizzle and receiving gifts from the Digicel Foundation Santa.
