Thank You !!
On 24 May around 100 volunteers from the Sydney Church of Christ with friends, participated in the Walk of Water in PNG at Wilson Park in Sydney to raise funds to provide clean running water to communities in the Central Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The event raised $10,000 so far!
The village of Gumine is where HOPE worldwide manages a small clinic, serving about 14,000 people in the remote Highlands. The community has poor access to water and sometimes this leads to tribal disputes. The water project aims to work with the local community to allow shared access to water at the HOPE clinic. A second supply will be located at the Gumine Church of Christ, another focal spot for the community.
Hilary Gumley, one of the participants who ran most of the way!: “I want to thank you for supporting me to run even further than my initial goal of 12km. I was so motivated by your support, I met my personal goal on the day of approx. 20km. I ran most laps of the course with a small group of runners, and towards the end it was the support of all the volunteers at the start/finish line that made the run so enjoyable!
