"I will soon write a longer piece to express my gratitude to PNG Attitude and its readers. I will email it before this week ends as our life settled down. In it, I will talk about what I intend to do with the money and reflect on our previous life and the two robberies.  I will also update everyone on the little Learning Centre - school - I intend to establish and what my plans are for 2019" - Marlene Potoura

Just come back from Kandep to learn about this sad situation Marlene and her sons are in.

Perhaps PNG Attitude might like to ask Ms Potoura to provide her PNG bank account details so some of us who might like to help can deposit contributions direct into her bank account to cut extra costs.

My family would like to contribute K100.

That's very good of you, Daniel. Papua New Guinean readers can donate directly to Marlene Potoura at the Westpac bank in Lae. The BSB number is 038 045 and account number 600 613 7433. Marlene's email is [email protected] - KJ
