Participants of the New Born Care Trainning workshop have thanked World Vision for giving them the opportunity to have access to such knowledge and skills.
The participants’ representative Ambrose Savara who spoke on behalf of the participants during their graduation ceremony yesterday said the participants have been given the opportunity to bring much needed service to the community where there is a great need of such help for mothers and their babies.
The workshop under the theme “Caring for mothers and new borns in the community” ran for one week at the Tsiroge Catholic Mission and was attended by health workers as well as representatives from project areas in the North West Coast of Bougainville and North Bougainville.
With the completion of the workshop, the thirty-seven participants were presented with certificates participation in New Born Care.
Meanwhile the district health representative Wilfred Nopin revealed also that World Vision has already signed a Memorandum of Understanding for World Vision to work in partnership with the health department in implementing the programmes in the communities.
He said these programme will make it easy for mothers and fathers in the communities to look after new born babies.
He then thanked World Vision for making the workshop possible for the people of Bougainville.
