The Aidocean team is on the way for a new mission in Papua New Guinea: GP PNG 2024.


A change of scenery this year: the members of Aidocean will be working in the Gulf Province to the south of the main island.

In order to work effectively, a partnership has been set up with the Gulf Province Health Authority and Gulf Christian Services, which manage the 2 hospitals in this area. The French Aidocean team will be supported by a local team from the Kapuna hospital.

As last year, Aidocean will be working in partnership with the Buk Bilong Pikinini association. This association works to improve access to education for children in Papua. So, during this new care and vaccination mission in Papua New Guinea, Aidocean will be bringing books in English (supplied by Buk Bilong Pikinini) to the villages visited.

As part of the eye care offered to the inhabitants of the Gulf Province during this new mission, Aidocean will also be able to provide glasses. The One Sight Essilor Luxottica foundation will be our partner this year.
