On Saturday, July 7, 2018, the Sir. Brian Bell Foundation donated much needed items to the Kumura Foundation which was then received by Mangi Yai Elementary School in remote upper Bundi. This timely donation was given to assist Kumura Foundation in their mission to continue providing quality education to the remote students in upper Bundi. The Sir Brian Bell Foundation donation hopes this small donation to the Kumura Foundation will make a big impact on the students in the remote area and enhance their learning.
Donated items included a 3.KVA diesel generator, and a 32-inch LED flat screen, a DVD player, a 10m extension cord, a six-outlet power board, and a diesel engine oil for the generator. These items were presented to the teachers and school board on the 19th February by Brian Bell Madang Team member Newman Tom. For many young students, it was the first time they had seen a T.V.
Kumura Foundation CEO Vincent Kumura said “Our heartfelt thanks to donations from the Sir Brian Bell Foundation and Mr. Tom Newman of Brian Bell Madang for representing the Sir Brian Bell Foundation at our remote Mangi Yai Elementary school donation event. Hundreds turned up including our rural medical outreach partners this week- Marie Stopes PNG and Fred Hollows Foundation who made our special guest list. Very colourful and historical event. To all who made it possible, thank you very much.”
Brian Bell Madang Branch Manager Wayne Satchell was glad that the Foundation honoured the Kumura Foundations request for support and thanked CEO Bronwyn Wright. “I am happy that you are able to work with Bronwyn. She is a good woman with a good heart for PNG like her grandfather”.
This is the second such donation the Sir Brian Bell Foundation donated items to the Kumura Foundation to support their educational mission in rural Bundi, library books were also donated in early 2018.
