In collaboration with YWAM Norway, YWAM Kona and YWAM Townsville we are reaching out to the population of Papua New Guinea with the medical ship YWAM Liberty. The ship represents hope for thousands of people with critical health and development needs in Papua New Guinea. The staff on the ship deliver healthcare, community development and training to people living in isolated areas of PNG.
In a nation where 43 % of the population is under the age of 15, one in four Papua New Guinean children will not live to celebrate their 40th birthday.
Delivering basic services in Papua New Guinea is a big challenge with 84% of the population living in remote, rural areas. These communities are scattered over rugged terrain, complex river systems, vast expanses of ocean, and an extensive coastline – just a few hundred kilometres from Australia’s coast.
With our ship we help overcome the challenge by accessing isolated communities with medical specialists, supplies, health services and mentoring and support for rural health workers.
