John is also doing a fine job in helping the children of the Tari Basin in PNG’s Southern Highlands. The object of the exercise was to find as many school resources as possible to assist recently reopened primary and secondary schools in the area. The school libraries had been ransacked when schools were abandoned due to civil unrest. More about this story in the forthcoming issue of The Mail – out next weekend.
