We have a nice two-story residential compound with standalone offices, parking spaces, visitor meeting area, and a nice backyard garden area too. Under construction are the Pikinini Kitchen, Store Room, Visitor’s Restroom, and Toolshed.
The new place is called the “Family Home Care” (FHC). The FHC is home for up to 75 vulnerable children who have lost one or both of their parents. We also provide few nights of accommodation for visiting homeless children within the city of Port Moresby. These children are given unconditional love and care apart from food, clothes and other basic necessities of life. Most importantly, they are also guided by our Christian beliefs and principles, which are fundamental to their spiritual growth and development.
The children are under the love and care of Mr and Mrs Pake. Family Home Care was established as a result of the growing numbers of children living on the streets as urbanisation continues, especially in Port Moresby and other major urban centres in PNG.
The kids love the new place. For example, Sabastian, a 11-year-old boy, when asked how he feels about the new place, said: “Since we moved into this new place, I felt so happy. I started looking around, and it’s quite a big area. We also have a park opposite the road side — I love this place.”
