Read the stories of the Presentation Sisters in PNG in 2 colourful new Fact sheets
Extract from Newsletter:
Ningil and Yimut are in very rough and rugged terrain. There is no road into Yimut. The truck can only go as far as Nuku. There it is unloaded and the Sisters and the Nationals continue their journey on foot. They have to carry their cargo on their backs for the eight hour walk to Yimut. In Ningil and Yimut the Sisters are engaged in education and pastoral work. Ningil also has a Health Clinic run by the Sisters.
“Can you imagine a truck carrying a drum of diesel, timber, food and many passengers trying to wield that amount of cargo and at the same keeping on the iron tracks? One false move and all land in the river. No wonder some passengers feign sleep when things become too hairy!” – Sr. Margaret Mary
In Fact sheet 2 Sr Margaret Mary, who has now returned to Australia after living with the Presentation Sisters in Papua New Guinea for 25 years, speaks of the difficulties of transportation in the region.
“A truck is a lifeline for the Sisters” – Sr Margaret Mary
