Kumul Petroleum Supports PMGH Cancer Centre Structural Works
Structural works for the Cancer Centre at Port Moresby General Hospital will continue as planned following the boost of much needed funds by Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited (Kumul Petroleum).
The funding boost by Kumul Petroleum at the value of K10 million will assist with the smooth flow and completion of the Cancer Center structural works after construction had stalled early this year due to a lack of funds. The scoop of work for the completion of the construction includes the roof; upper floor; roof over the banker; including plant room and walls on both ground and first floors.
”Kumul Petroleum is proud to support the structural phase of the Cancer Centre construction works that will house key infrastructure (2 cancer bunkers) that will be important to the health and well-being of Papua New Guineans who seek cancer treatment, said Kumul Petroleum Managing Director Mr. Wapu Sonk.
“Our organisation is passionate about supporting the efforts of the National Governments Strategic Vision to improve healthcare in the country and to see the hospital provide the highest quality of care for all Papua new Guineans, but for this to happen it is important that we have the infrastructure to do so. Hence, our support to this project”.
Dr. Paki Molumi, Chief Executive Officer of Port Moresby General Hospital acknowledged Kumul Petroleum for its continuous support to the hospital and to specialist health care in Papua New Guinea, saying: “Port Moresby General Hospital is working to develop modern, world class facilities, that the designs for the cancer facility is in full compliance with international standards and construction has been professionally supervised to ensure continuing compliance.”
“We are very grateful at Port Moresby General Hospital to receive this funding support from Kumul Petroleum on top of its other commitments. Such support from a national company is vital to the success of this facility and, will help to ensure that we stay on target to complete the facility and begin providing services to the people of Papua New Guinea as soon as possible”.Back to News
