Karen Heyward - WaterAid PNG
Since 2015 Karen Heyward has been participating in outreach trips to remote PNG. Karen spent some years in the East Sepik Province, Wewak, as a teenager and when the opportunity came to contribute her midwifery skills through a small NGO called Living Child Inc, she couldn’t resist. Through her voluntary work with LC, in remote Yamen, she became aware of a position with WaterAid PNG which dovetailed well with the Maternal and Child Health work she had been involved in.
From April 2019 Karen has taken up an 18 month position in a joint project between the East Sepik Province and WaterAid PNG, to provide mentorship to an environmental health officer as they develop an Infant nutrition and hygiene pilot plan. The aim is to iron out any wrinkles in Wewak District’s plan and the implement it throughout PNG. Vic felt it was time to step aside for younger leaders within TLC, so he will be using his time in PNG to finish some study, attend a God’s Squad international conference in Europe and most importantly, be a support for Karen in this challenging environment.
"Sharing Hope is a registered charity that works with Karen refugees living along the Thai/Burma border. Many Karen have settled in our local area and TLC has formed close ties with these new locals. TLC formed a formal partnership with Sharing Hope at its inception, funding community projects such as school reconstruction and medical support. All of our projects are initiated and managed by local Karen communities"
