Founded 2005. Our charity funds airfares, medical tests and surgical operations for village children from Simbu Province in Papua New Guinea (PNG) to city and overseas hospitals. We source medical equipment for the Sir Joseph Nombri Memorial Hospital in Kundiawa and support the Irugl Mother of Life Centre Orphanage located at the foot of Mt Wilhelm. The Foundation has no paid staff, this is a labour of love. The success of our projects is wholly reliant on our wonderful volunteers, supporters and donors throughout PNG and the world.
Teams are autonomous for the most part, you choose what activities you would like to focus on. Some teams focus on one project only e.g. providing materials for Irugl Orphanage. Other teams are involved in a few SCF projects. Teams function independently during the year and deliver donated items personally or forward the items to Kundiawa for the SCF office and Team Simbu to organise delivery. The annual SCF Christmas Ball at the Mt Wilhelm Hotel is usually when Teams advise of funds raised during the year. Some Teams choose to purchase a table as a donation, so that children and parents who have been assisted by SCF can attend the evening.
