Sir Brian Bell Foundation is proud to assist Project Yumi in the delivery of health and education materials in PNG. In 2018, the Project Yumi team accomplished their first project delivery due to the partnership with the Foundation which included shipping of a 20ft container and an additional 40ft container of much needed valuable resources including educational and medical supplies. These timely donations formed lasting relationships with other schools, health centres, provinces across PNG and will be life changing for those in the remote parts of PNG who receive them.
Since its establishment, Project Yumi has been servicing the local people with immunization, medications for sores and diseases. Due to the partnership from the Sir Brian Bell Foundation, the health facility has been upgraded to cater for a wider range of medical situations including; eye Care services including issuing of glasses, maternity services or delivery of newborn babies, treatment of Broken bones (leg or hand), treatment for asthma and proper medical file keeping. Through the first delivery, they were able to distribute to seven provinces including NCD, Central, Gulf, Bougainville, East New Britain, Eastern and Western Highlands. Distributed items included stationery, reading books, whiteboards, wheelchairs, stethoscopes, clinical trolley mats, and other medical resources.
The response and sincere gratitude that the Project Yumi team received from village communities, demonstrated that these items would make a significant impact on the lives in the communities. “Our team would like to thank Bronwyn and the team from Sir Brian Bell Foundation again for their sponsorship of our first shipping container. Without your support, we would not have been able to help as many people as we have. We are truly thankful for your generosity” commented Project Yumi Director Renee Mero. “you are most welcome; I love seeing all the photos of the beneficiaries of your hard work and dedication. It’s an absolute pleasure to be a small part of the Project Yumi story” commented Sir Brian Bell Foundation CEO Bronwyn Wright. In 2019 the Sir Brian Bell Foundation plans to assist Project Yumi with an additional 3 containers to assist those in need of supplies across PNG.
