Soroptimist International

Sir Brian Bell Foundation (SBBF) and the Brian Bell Group (BBG) proudly supports Soroptimist International Club of POM (SIPOM) in partnership with Links of Hope PNG Inc and House of Hope 3 years running.

House of Hope (HOH) is a Women’s Refuge Centre run by Salvation Army of PNG. This Community Outreach Program provides assistance with basic Education, literacy classes and awareness workshops to children between the ages of 2 and 14. Many of these children have not had the opportunity and means of attending mainstream schools. HOH staff & volunteers also provide basic counselling to parents, guardians, and carers of children who regularly visit the Centre. These children have either lost parents to HIV/ AIDS, while others may be infected with HIV since birth. The House of Hope and Links of Hope provides care and support for those in need and also caters for children who are affected by Gender-Based Violence by providing a safe haven for children and their affected parent.

HOH in partnership with LOH PNG are also helping to sponsor school-aged children in attending primary schools in POM as well as providing basic food and personal hygiene supplies to children and their families. LOH PNG is partnering with individuals who wish to sponsor children by making financial donations towards their education and basic daily needs.

Sir Brian Bell Foundation (SBBF) and the Brian Bell Group (BBG) proudly supports Soroptimist International Club of POM (SIPOM) in partnership with Links of Hope PNG Inc and House of Hope for 3 years running. This cash donation goes towards holding an annual Christmas party for the children and their families affected by HIV/AIDS and Christmas presents to be handed out on the day.

Brian Bell team members are also available to assist on the special days playing with the children, cooking or cleaning up and providing equipment to be used on the day. The children of LOH and HOH who are the beneficiary of this program are very thankful for the ongoing support from the Brian Bell Group and Sir Brian Bell Foundation.

The Foundation also provided funding of K50,000 in 2018 to Soroptimist International Club of Port Moresby (SIPOM) as well as individual contributions to several students to finish their studies. The Sir Brian Bell Foundation will continue to assist Soroptimist international in 2019 with educational scholarships in areas of Science, Education, and IT as well as funding support for the annual Christmas party for the Children and Families of House of Hope.
