Kundiawa Hospital Gets facelift from National Fisheries Authority

The National Fisheries Authority through the Board funded Kundiwa General Hospital and Mingende Rural Hospital with K500, 000 for the procurement of Medical equipment. “The Board though its wisdom approved K500, 000 for the procurement of Medical equipment for the hospital’, Michael Wau NFA Board Member said when officially presented the medical equipment.  Mr Wau who represented NFA said that NFA has done a lot in the highlands region but this is plus- plus assistance given especially to the people of Simbu.

The Medical equipment were officially presented to the hospitals on the 26th, June 2015. These equipment were presented in the presence of Governor of Simbu, Mr Noah Kool and Mathew Kaluvia Chief Executive Office for Kundiwa General Hospital.  “Apart from other funding received in the Province, this funding is very significant for the province and I salute NFA Managing Director John Kasu, the Board and the hard working staff of National Fisheries Authority for the support in the province”, Mr Noah Kool said.  Mr Kool said the medical doctors in the province approached him regarding the TB outbreak and he responded positively to purchase a TB scanner and other supports to the hospital. Dr Herry Poka, Medical Services Director, when speaking on behalf of the medical team in the province, expressed NFA’s assistance as a “rain in a desert”.

 “NFA as we know it’s about fisheries or aquaculture related but health is nothing related to fisheries”, Dr Poka said. “NFA your funding; we have procured some very top equipment in the country like Bio chemistry analyser and TB scanner just in time and we really thank you for the support”, Dr Poka said.

“Its disgrace for the general hospital to refer patients to the rural hospital as we don’t have bio chemical analyser. Since NFA has procured this equipment we will now diagnose our patients using the equipment. Thanks to NFA for the support and also thanks to the donors and our partners like UPNG, Divine Word and others”.    Mathew Kaluvia said.
