Valoka Health Centre receives new Mobile Health Clinic

Located in the Talasea District of the West New Britain Province is Valoka Health Centre, run by the Catholic Church and established in 1970. The nursing centre has 35 full-time staff inclusive of nursing, administration and ancillary staff. Valoka Health Centre is connected to 20 sub-health clinics and has a catchment population of more than 20,000 people. Digicel PNG Foundation donated a Mobile Health Clinic, worth K180,000 to the Valoka Health Centre to assist with its rural outreach programs. Before receiving the new ambulance, the centre was operating one ambulance only funded by the former member for Talasea District. Sister in Charge, Filiberta Batari thanked Digicel Foundation for the gift. She said, “it is a first of its kind to have a fully kitted ambulance in the province and it sure is a blessing to us. We have been using one vehicle to do outreach programs and we’ve always needed a second one. The new ambulance will help us to go into more rural communities during our outreach programs.” Valoka Health Centre is the 2nd biggest hospital to Kimbe General Hospital and people prefer Valoka for its fast service, kind approach and clean facilities.
