Golf Day helps raise funds for PNG women suffering from Cervical Cancer

Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Australia’s Rotary Clubs have combined and recently hosted a Golf Day to help raise funds for PNG women who might otherwise suffer from Cervical Cancer.
The joint Rotary Clubs of Boroko in Port Moresby and Greater Springfield in Brisbane, Australia hosted a Golf Day Fund Raiser at the Brookwater Golf Club on Monday to raise money for free Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccinations to save the lives of girls in PNG.
Mark McMonagle, President and Organizer of the Boroko Rotary Club, stated that over $100, 000 Australian Dollars (over K244, 000) was raised on the day thanks to the Resource Sector and Business in PNG and Australia Rotary.
“Through matching grants, this should translate into five hundred thousand free vaccinations for the women in PNG,” said Mr McMonagle.
“We had about 125 people attend on the day and there were many fantastic prizes on offer, including a brand new car.”
He mentioned that the feedback from the attendees was that the day was extremely enjoyable.
“We are grateful and sincerely thank all of the sponsors that helped supported this worthy and much needed cause.”
PNG Prime Minister Peter O’Neil was also present on the Golf Day Fund Raiser to represent the people, especially women, of the country.
The regular cost for vaccination is $130 (about K317) per dose. However, the Rotary Clubs have secured a special price of $5.75 (about K14) per vaccination.
