@Kyrstal my Dad went to PNG for surfing with a group of friends and staying in the middle of nowhere. Him and his friends got taken to a school and they got to see what it’s like and they donated heaps of stuff. They also donated clothes to the kids from the village near where they were staying. My Dad said that when he showed his camera to them they were amazed, and that they’re really happy kids yet they have hardly anything.
@Jaquelin – Yeah it’s so strange to think how close Australia is to PNG and how yet different our lives are. I would love to give some students in PNG more resources, new books and worksheets and really useful information on health and diseases. My friend Leanne lives in PNG and she’s a scientist too, working on malaria. We did our PhDs together in Melbourne. Anyway, I’ve been talking to her about what projects we could do if I had $1000 to spend up there – hopefully we can do some cool stuff!
